Ingersoll Rand has introduced a new line of Infinity Series customized mining air winches. The new FA2i Infinity Series air winch has a rated capacity of 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) with a 4,400-lb top layer-rated line pull. A 9.4-hp (7-kW) radial piston motor provides positive starting torque and precise spotting control. Ingersoll Rand designed the Infinity Series winches to be compact, with longer side rails and rounded bars welded to both ends—increasing the stability of the winch and making it easier for users to transport it.
Protective cages surround the motor and control system and heavy duty, abrasion-resistant pendant hoses are also protected by a sheath and designed with quick release/replace disconnects. Another new feature is an oil sight gauge on the motor, which provides quick-check oil-level readings.
