HTM26 Winch Apparatus

HTM26 Winch Apparatus

This industrial winch has been adapted for experimental work. The substantial wall bracket is to be mounted to a sturdy vertical support. A horizontal shaft running through the heart of the unit has an 'EFFORT' pulley attached to its end. This pulley has a high strength cord wrapped around its periphery and terminates in a load hanger.

At the centre of the winch is a drum that also has a high strength cord wrapped around its periphery. This cord again terminates with a load hanger. This cord and hanger is termed the 'LOAD'.

The student applies a set of calibrated weights to the 'LOAD' hanger and adds appropriate calibrated weights to the 'EFFORT' hanger to raise 'LOAD'.

The winch has a maximum working load of 300 kg and is equipped with a safety pawl and ratchet.

A comprehensive instruction manual for lecturer and student, giving full details on apparatus assembly and operation as well as example results. All necessary assembly and operational tools are provided.

Optional accessories: HAC14
