ALIMAK SE-Ex - Explosion Proof Elevator

Explosion proof, passenger and freight industrial elevator for hazardous areas

Built on the experience gained from thousands of installations worldwide, the latest Explosion proof elevator ALIMAK SE-Ex is designed to deliver on your access requirements for heavy transport needs in hazardous environments. The ALIMAK SE-Ex sets a new benchmark for the safer, efficient vertical transportation of personnel and materials on derricks, hull columns, platform modules, oil refineries, LNG terminals, chemical plants and other similar industrial environments.

New design, new flexibility

Increased efficiency, productivity and safety are just three of the benefits delivered by the new Explosion proof elevator ALIMAK SE-Ex range of freight and passenger elevator solutions from the company that pioneered the rack and pinion drive system back in 1962 to safely and efficiently transport people and materials. The enhanced efficiency delivered by the ALIMAK SE-Ex stems in part from the unique modular design of the cars that provide many different car sizes within the standard range. All elevators are based on a variety of wall panels made of the characteristic Alimak self locking, aluminum profiles. These wall panels meet different elevator needs, and create adaptable floor and roof configurations. A more rigid car design is built on a solid car floor and stiffened beams, which supports greater load capacity on a single mast.

Remote monitoring

The well proven Alimak Lift Control system ALC-II ensures both efficiency and ease of use. As an added bonus, Alimaks’ online A3 remote monitoring system can be fitted as an accessory. This gives the ability to fully monitor the elevator and trace any faults instantly from remote locations. This enhancement to our standard control system can speed up corrective diagnostics and minimize downtime.
