ER2 Food Grade

The electric chain hoist engineered for the food industry – the KITO FER2

As an addition to its existing product range, KITO offers the Electric Chain Hoist FER2 which was specifically developed to meet the needs and requirements of the food industry. KITO’s Food Grade ER2 is well-suited for lifting applications in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing industries where pristine cleanliness is critical.

Food grade lubricants used on the load chain and in the gearbox are NSF H1 compliant for safe use in any facility where incidental contact with product is a concern.

This three-phase electric chain hoist is available in the capacities ranging from 500 kg up to 2 t with a wide array of mounting solutions at the customer’s disposal, from the hook version to the plain trolley or even including the use of a geared or electric trolley. Customer-specified options include a protective silicone pendant cover, stainless steel and nickel-plated hardware, and nickel-plated load chain making this hoist well-suited for contaminant controlled or corrosive processing environments.
Similar to all KITO electric chain hoists, the FER2 hoist comes standard with the KITO brand grade 80 type load chain. This nickel-plated chain is well known for its corrosion resistance, as well as a super-smooth surface that greatly reduces link to link wear.
