FER

Work clean with confidence.

For lifting applications in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries—where maintaining a pristine environment is critical—the FER food-grade electric chain hoist is the one to choose. FDA approved 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. The standard model also features white epoxy paint, stainless steel /nickel-plated hardware and a nickel-plated load chain, making the FER the perfect choice for contaminant-controlled or corrosive processing environments.

Corrosion-Resistant Nickel-Plated Load Chain

The standard, grade 80 nickel-plated load chain on Kito’s electric food-grade hoist is engineered to stand up to corrosion in environments where damp air or steam are prevalent.

Chip-Resistant Epoxy Paint

Avoid contaminants from your lifting equipment. The white, chip-resistant epoxy paint on the FER hoist body protects you from debris that could contaminate your processing facility.

Chip-Resistant Bottom Hook

Since the bottom hook can come into direct contact with products, food-grade features like the chip-resistant paint on the bottom hook of the FER are designed to resist potential contamination from flaking and chipping.

FDA Approved Food-Safe Oil, Grease and Lubricants

Pharmaceutical, beverage and food-associated processing plants require equipment that uses non-toxic lubrication. That’s why the FER hoist gives you and FDA approved NSF H1 compliant grease and oil on the load chain and in the gearbox.

Ss nickel plated hardware web

Stainless Steel and Nickel-Plated Components

The standard food-grade features on the FER include stainless steel and nickel-plated hardware that won’t rust or corrode.
