Work clean with confidence.

For lifting applications in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries—where maintaining a pristine environment is critical—the FER food-grade electric chain hoist is the one to choose. FDA approved food-grade lubricants used on the load chain and in the gearbox are NSF H1 compliant for safe use in any facility where incidental contact with product is a concern. The standard model also features white epoxy paint, stainless steel /nickel-plated hardware and a nickel-plated load chain, making the FER the perfect choice for contaminant-controlled or corrosive processing environments.


Corrosion-Resistant Nickel-Plated Load Chain

The standard grade 80 nickel-plated load chain on Kito’s electric food-grade hoist is engineered to stand up to corrosion in environments where damp air or steam are prevalent.

Chip-Resistant Epoxy Paint

Avoid contaminants from your lifting equipment. The white, chip-resistant epoxy paint on the FER hoist body protects you from debris that could contaminate your processing facility.

Chip-Resistant Bottom Hook

Since the bottom hook can come into direct contact with products, food-grade features like the chip-resistant paint on the bottom hook of the FER are designed to resist potential contamination from flaking and chipping.

FDA Approved Food-Safe Oil, Grease and Lubricants

Pharmaceutical, beverage, and food-associated processing plants require equipment that uses non-toxic lubrication. That’s why the FER hoist gives you and FDA approved NSF H1 compliant grease and oil on the load chain and in the gearbox.

Stainless Steel and Nickel-Plated Components

The standard food-grade features on the FER include stainless steel and nickel-plated hardware that won’t rust or corrode.
