    (ATEX Certified level Ex II 2GD c T5 IIB T100°C)
  • Adjustable load limiter integrated into the winch body stops lifting/pulling when the winch is overloaded.
  • Multiple brakes and the heavy-duty fully-enclosed disc brake enables smooth operation.
    (Manual drum lever brake, auto-disc brake, cylinder brake, and air-operated emergency stop button.)
  • Rachet/Pawl mechanism prevents it from unwinding unless the ratchet is retracted.


  • Powerful piston air motor has variable speed control, provides strong starting torque, precise positioning and superior reliability in harsh environments.
  • Unlimited duty cycle allows for high efficiency.
  • The air motor working direction can be shifted instantly without any delay to either forward or reverse, which improves controllability of the drum rotation.

7 Things You Need To Know Before Buying Winches


  • Is it for pulling or lifting purpose?


  • How much lifting/pulling load capacities do you need?


  • Where do you intend to use the winches and is there any special requirements?


  • Do you need us to equip with the chain and rope and if yes, what specs & how much length do you need?


  • What kind of power is available to you and is there any special requirements?
    (For example, what is your working compressed air pressure for the pneumatic winches?)


  • We do provide a number of additional advanced features, simply ask if you have any specific requirements for the offshore air winches performance. (remote control, pendant control, rope guider, added brakes and others.)
