Knight Global's Pneumatic/Air Balancer product line is one of the broadest in the industry offering a full line of air balancer series configurations.
Pneumatic/Air Balancers are offered in many configurations: Single
, Single Reeved
, Dual Drum
, Tandem Reeved
. Knight Air Balancers are also offered with the choice of a Cable or Chain configuration on most models. The Cable is a carbon steel 6
(strands) x 31
(wires) Galvanized Independent Wire Rope Core (GIWRC) that is manufactured to the U.S. specification (DMS-2192E).
Chain is usually recommended instead of cable because chain is more durable when balancing weights in excess of 350 lbs.
] and/ or high cycle times are encountered. The use of cable under these conditions has a greater tendency to fray or "birdcage" requiring a more specific PM program.
Knight chain balancers use a custom grade lifting chain specially treated to increase the life of the chain by up to 300%
