The LCM range of ATEX/IECEx load shackles is designed for lifting and weighing in rugged or harsh environments, and also meet the requirements for operation in Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas. The shackle pins are forged from high tensile stainless steel and are machined to an exacting specification.
The SHK-A range of ATEX load shackles is proof loaded to 150% of the nominal rated load, and is available in ratings from 3.25 to 400 tonnes. The integral cable is normally enclosed in an armoured rubber hydraulic hose to give physical and environmental protection. The SHK-A is internally gauged and the whole instrumented area is sealed to IP67 to protect it in service.
These ATEX load shackles are simple to install and are available in standard shackle sizes. As an option a rotating bobbin can be supplied to centralise the load and to minimise any point-load effects when the shackle is placed under load. We are also happy to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated, including larger sized shackles up to 1500 tonnes using GN Rope shackles.
