SS11 Subsea Lever Hoist

The SS11 has been designed and developed over a number of years for use primarily in subsea, offshore or corrosive environments. The unique design features - including the one piece construction pinion gears and patented Quad Cam Pawl System, along with the anti-corrosion properties incorporated in this range, give it significant safety advantages over standard lever hoists. This makes the SS11 subsea lever hoist the ideal tool for all marine and extreme applications.

Developed initially with the goal of giving key stakeholders within the Oil and Gas Industry a hoist that could be certified for safe use subsea whilst meeting all the requirements of IMCA DO28 Rev. 1 “Guidance notes for offshore lever hoists”, the SS11 meets and exceeds these requirements, as well as other industry client specifications whilst conforming to standards such as BS EN 13157: 2004+A1:2009, ANSI/ASME B30.21-2005, AS1418.2 and SANS 1636.

The SS11 is suitable for use in multi-immersion applications providing the timescales, pre-use testing, maintenance and service requirements as detailed in relevant Tiger documents are strictly adhered to.

Details

Our patented Quad Cam Pawl System guarantees permanent engagement of at least one of the two reciprocating cam pawls fitted to the SS11, ensuring the pawl only just clears the ratchet wheel, with the minimum of clearance as required under BS 4898:1973. But most importantly, in the unlikely event of a pawl spring failure, this design will ensure the brake is still fully functional and the load is sustained without damage to the mechanism.

This model includes our unique rotational inertia driven torsion switch brake and freewheeling system. This brake system was designed by our research and design team to counter known failure modes in commonly used and copied longitudinal “push-pull” mechanisms or traditional style “Weston” type brake systems used on alternative lever hoists.  This Tiger brake system is now a proven design with many thousands of hours of empirical evidence as proof of design and efficiency. This design removes the need for inefficient old style longitudinal disengagement methods of pulling the brake system apart to facilitate freewheeling. This highly efficient method of operating is not only safer but easier for the operator whilst measurably increasing the brake take up efficiency rate.

Tiger uses an 8 point multi start thread pinion shaft which has also increased brake reaction times. The rotational engagement of the brake works with the direction of the load sheave creating highly efficient braking ratios - up to 50% measurable difference compared with longitudinal push-pull brake systems.

With over 50 years of professional manufacturing experience, Tiger’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction mean we will continue to develop and improve our products by communicating and working with our customers. The SS11 range of lever hoists is evidence of this practice. 

Certification:

Each unit comes fully certified with a test certificate or an EC Declaration of Conformity stating compliance with the essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This document clearly states the proof test at 1.5 times the rated capacity and the light load test of 2% of the rated capacity, which exceeds the requirements of the current applicable standard.

Adaptor Components:

Drop forged adaptor maintaining maximum strength. 360° Rotation and 180° Pivot for MaximumFlexibility. Tested and certified to 4:1 factor of safety.

Adaptor Components

Self-locking (safety) hook, clevis shackle, reevable egg (master) link or sling hook fittings available (for units up to 10t capacity).

Environmental Testing and Multi-Immersion:

After successfully completing a series of independent third party verification and testing programmes to beyond established international standards, our latest being 3rd party multi-immersion tests at Catapult ORE in the UK, we can state that the SS11 range of lever hoists is suitable for use in multi-immersion applications providing the timescales, pre-use testing, maintenance and service requirements as detailed in Tiger document Multi-Immersion Instruction Manual are strictly adhered to.

This takes our testing far beyond the requirements of ASTM B117 environmental conditions with the SS11 range having over 1300 hours continuous exposure to an industry generated test programme in a real life offshore and subsea environment. This ensures the performance of the SS11 has been fully challenged in natural environments similar to the conditions they will be exposed to.

Safety Brake:

Our unique rotational inertia driven torsion switch brake and freewheeling system automatically engages when the lever hoist feels the slightest resistance or load. This key feature means that the SS11 will raise, hold and lower the lightest of loads without slipping. The two stage process protects against accidental light load failures by putting the hoist into neutral whilst under load. This highly efficient method of operating is not only safer but easier for the operator whilst measurably increasing the brake take up efficiency rate.

The bonded marine friction discs are free of asbestos and have been developed and designed for subsea use creating a highly efficient, reliable braking surface for use in the most extreme conditions.

Light Load Protection:

The unique brake system designed for the SS11 guarantees a light load protection at 2% of the rated capacity.

Patent Protected Quad Cam Brake Pawl System:

This patented development in brake efficiency guarantees permanent engagement of at least one of the two reciprocating cam pawls fitted to the SS11, ensuring the pawl only just clears the ratchet wheel, with the minimum of clearance as required under BS 4898:1973. But most importantly, in the unlikely event of a pawl spring failure, this new design will ensure the brake is still fully functional and the load is sustained without damage to the mechanism.

Brake Efficiency:

Tiger uniquely uses an 8 point multi start thread pinion shaft which has measurably increased the efficiency in brake reaction times - up to 50% measurable difference compared with longitudinal 4 point pinion threads.

Overload Protection:

The SS11 lever hoist can be fitted with a slipping clutch overload mechanism to protect it from overload. When the load limit is exceeded, the clutch in the chain wheel will slip, allowing the handle to be operated whilst not engaging the gear box. This prevents further lifting of the load, though lowering is still possible. The SS11 with overload protection is DNV GL Verification tested according to NORSOK R-002.

One Piece Construction Pinion Gears:

SS11 gearboxes contain one piece pinion gears.  This revolutionary process in gear manufacturing uses drop-forged raw material, precision machined and heat treated with precise ratios between teeth and body. 

Hooks:

Our hooks incorporate our latest Patent Pending “EZ Check” feature which allows operators and inspection engineers to easily check to see if the hoist has been previously overloaded or shock loaded by simply measuring between the triangle of pop marks.

Our drop forged and heat treated alloy hooks are furnished with heavy duty spring latch kits that fully engage into the recessed nose of the hook safeguarding the load when side loading of the latch occurs and offering maximum load security. The swivel hooks are attached to the yoke using high grade nuts & bolts allowing for complete inspection during any statutory inspection or written scheme maintenance. The entire hook fitting has been protected using OCP or stainless steel fixtures and fittings.

Available with hooks that swivel under the full working load limit, to meet relevant standards i.e. AS 1418.2. Also available with spark resistant hooks.

Brake Chamber Protection:

Precisely engineered side plates and components are protected by a full gasket giving the SS11 brake chamber and contents maximum protection from external contamination.

Load Chains:

Tiger only use the highest quality alloy, calibrated load chains in Grade T or VH conforming to EN818-7 and ISO 16872. The SS11 comes as 3.0mtr HOL as standard but can be chained up to whatever length is required. Stainless steel load chain available on request for certain capacities.

Protection and Finish:

Critical internal components are protected by our OCP (Organic Compound Protection) finish giving unprecedented long term reliability. Stainless steel fittings are used throughout the hoist. These ensure the initial capital outlay of purchasing the SS11 is protected by allowing the statutory inspections and re-certifications to be easier and also help with the overall aesthetics of the hoist being maintained in an “as new” condition. The SS11 is finished in our high quality white Akzo Nobel powder coat paint offering excellent additional corrosion protection and a high degree of impact protection. (Data sheets available on request.)

High Performance Premium Grease:

Load carrying ability, mechanical stability, corrosion protection, water resistance and increased operating temperature ranges are all improved by the using only the very best lubricant.

Handle:

The SS11 handle which interfaces with the operator is ergonomically designed for efficiency and ease of use and reduces the likelihood of a gloved hand from slipping off the end of the handle. It also helps prevent the use of unauthorised extension/cheater bars that could facilitate an overload on a non-overload protected SS11.

Tiger lever hoist handles are ultra-strong, with strengthening side ribs. This special feature:

  • Protects against impact damage
  • Protects the label
  • Increases its robustness and longevity
  • Eliminates torsion.

Forgings:

Recessed hook yoke forgings offer full protection to the load chain anchor bolts on all our bottom hooks.

Chain End Anchorage:

Tiger have incorporated the ultimate safeguarding of a single point failure mode as described in IMCA DO28 Rev. 1 Note 7.2 by installing a specially designed adjustable chain end stop. Tiger have specifically profiled and manufactured this item to fit the contours of the hoist. This offers complete assurance to the operator, whilst maintaining the flexibility of “freewheeling” the chain to any required starting position.

Chain Guide:

Specifically designed to guide the load chain safely onto or off the load sheave without snagging or jamming, the fluted chain stripper allows the safe use of the SS11 when used in any orientation.

Performance:

The SS11 lever hoist has undergone a full test program that includes:

Type Testing

  • Ultimate strength test, at least 4 times the Working load limit (WLL)
  • Chain end anchorage test, passing at least 4 times the WLL without any restriction of the brake or gears

Test on every hoist

  • Proof loading at 1.5 times the rated capacity
  • Light load testing at maximum of 2% rated capacity
