Choosing the right hoist for the job

A hoisting device for the food industry requires stainless steel components and corrosion-resistant surfaces. Not all lifting equipment in the market meets these requirements. Therefore, it is essential to check this before proceeding with the purchase of a hoist for the food processing industry.

In addition to the hardware components involved in hoisting, you should also consider, for example, food-grade lubricant. This will prevent contamination of the product if oil drips from the seal.
