Reminder: Prepare Now for Upcoming Ingersoll Rand® LCA and LCH Parts Retirement

Please plan now to prepare for the discontinuation of parts for the Ingersoll Rand® Liftchain hook LCA and LCH products lines, effective Dec. 31, 2018.

Despite their discontinuation in 2009 (they were replaced by the LC2A and the LC2H hoist series), we have continued to support the LCA and LCH product lines for the past 10 years.

Ingersoll Rand Liftchain Hook Hoists are the most advanced heavy-lifting hoists in the Ingersoll Rand hoist line. They incorporate all the best features we’ve developed from our decades of experience into a compact, modular frame. Hook Mount versions offer maximum versatility to place them where you
need them. Count on Liftchain hook mount hoists to get the job done.

Plan ahead now to:

  • Understand your customer base and stock the parts for any discontinued product which may be relevant to their service needs to help minimize service lead times for these product users.
  •  Recognize that Ingersoll Rand® will no longer provide technical support or service training for products for which parts have been discontinued.
  • Work with your customers to upgrade any current products from the previous LCA line to the current LC2A line.

While we are committed to supporting products throughout their lifecycle with parts for maintenance and overhauls, this change will enable our customer base to realize the features and benefits of our latest product portfolio as they replace aging products. This change will also allow all of us to focus on the latest product line with improved technology and safety features.

Please direct any questions you may have about this transition to your sales leader.

Ingersoll Rand has launched the Elk Series electric chain hoist, designed to be lightweight and accessible enough to be serviced while still mounted at the facility, cutting downtime.

The three key features that make this possible are an external motor that is easy to reach and remove; a self-contained, permanently-lubricated gearbox that eliminates complexity; and a durable design that lasts in both indoor and outdoor applications.

“With the introduction of the ELK Series Electric Chain Hoist, we are bringing an electric hoist to market that meets the reputation for durability and reliability of our MLK, CLK and HLK hoists,” said Austin Lieb, vice president of product management and marketing at Ingersoll Rand Power Tools.

“Customers can now choose an electric hoist that is modern, compact and significantly lighter than what is currently on the market, making it easier for them to use and maintain their equipment.”ingersoll-rand-aug18-ds

The Elk series is initially available in capacities from 125kg–1t, with capacities up to 5t coming later in the year. The hoists are suitable for a range of end-use sectors including foundries, general industry and manufacturing, oil and gas, heavy equipment manufacturing and wind generation.

The hoists are also durable and reliable, added Ingersoll Rand, and can handle a high volume of loads in accordance with the H4 standard. The aluminium die cast housing can withstand harsh manufacturing environments, and it resistant to dust, water jets, and has built-in drain housing.

Ingersoll Rand Makes Global Climate Commitment

ingersoll-rand-header

Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, announced that a 1,990 kW GE Solar PV power system is now online and generating power at its 430,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Trenton, N.J.

The solar power system marks another milestone in Ingersoll Rand’s Global Climate Commitment, which includes a 35-percent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint from its operations by 2020.To help meet this goal, the company is making investments in solar power at three of its large manufacturing sites, including the Trenton plant, where the company produces Trane® and American Standard® brand heating and air conditioning systems for homes and residential buildings.

“Our investment in renewable energy is the next step in our journey, and the photovoltaic array at this plant an illustration of how innovation increases sustainability and resiliency of our operations,” said Jason Bingham, president of the Residential HVAC and Supply business of Ingersoll Rand. “Over the past several years, many members of the Ingersoll Rand team have worked hard to increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at our facilities around the world, bringing benefits to customers, employees, and the environment.”

The solar array will provide 49M kilowatt-hours (kWh) of power. Over the 20-year lifespan of the system, this equals a reduction of nearly 35,600 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to taking 7,600 vehicles off the road for a year.

“Availability and accessibility of renewable energy options continues to increase, making it attractive to industrial companies like Ingersoll Rand and to our customers,” said Keith Sultana, senior vice president of Global Operations and Integrated Supply Chain for Ingersoll Rand. In addition to its solar installations, the company also signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for approximately 100,000 MWh of wind power annually. “We engaged our own Trane Energy Supply business to provide a roadmap on how to be smarter about our energy purchases, and to organize an agreement that is responsible to the environment and good for our business.”

About the Ingersoll Rand Climate Commitment

In 2014, Ingersoll Rand publicly committed to increase its energy efficiency and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) related to its operations and products. The company’s Climate Commitment includes:

  • 50 percent reduction in GHG refrigerant footprint of its products by 2020 and lower-GWP alternatives across its portfolio by 2030
  • $500 million investment in product-related research and development to fund long-term GHG reduction
  • 35-percent reduction in the greenhouse gas footprint of its own operations by 2020

Ingersoll Rand’s climate commitment has enabled avoidance of 11 million metric tons of CO2e globally from its products compared to a 2013 baseline, equal to the emissions from the energy used in 1.6 million homes for one year. The company also has reduced the GHG intensity of its operations by 23 percent when compared to a 2013 baseline.
