The broadest offering ever of all-stainless steel material handling equipment for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry will be on display by The David Round Company at INTERPHEX 2011. David Round designs and manufacturers stainless steel strap hoists, wire rope hoists, chain hoists, tractor drives, trolleys and end trucks for use in pharmaceutical manufacturing environments. Additionally, the company manufactures portable floor cranes, wall-mounted cranes and free-standing cranes with all-stainless construction.
"Being able to employ paint-free, totally stainless steel material handling products has never been more important to the pharmaceutical industry," said Brad Young, David Round president. "Our customers tell us that all-stainless external construction is mandatory because painted surfaces — even FDA approved epoxies — are no longer tolerated in many clean room environments. Eight out of ten of the largest pharmaceutical firms have David Round stainless hoists in their newest facilities. If you are serious about cleanliness, all-stainless is the only way to go."
David Round’s "pharmaceutical grade" hoists feature polished 304 stainless steel enclosures, sealed gearing, food grade lubrication, smooth ground wells and plugged fasteners, among other features, to reduce potential contamination.
Established in 1869, The David Round Company remains one of the oldest hoist manufacturers in the world. David Round offers standard handling products such as chain hoists, jib cranes, winches and tractor drives as well as innovative solutions including engineered wire rope hoists, all-stainless steel products and jib crane motorization kits.
Major corporations and engineering firms routinely ask David Round to produce items which are non-standard for other material handling equipment suppliers. The company excels at designing and producing custom engineered equipment, purpose-built to tailor to special environments and applications.
Found in almost every industry from pharmaceutical processing and food manufacturing to oil and gas, aviation, pulp and paper and water control, David Round’s products improve handling system efficiency while making the workplace a more productive and safer environment through their ergonomic designs.
