Thern Set to Showcase Air Winch Line at OTC 2008
New for this year’s show, Thern will be showcasing their personnel rated
winches. Dual-rated and designed with personnel lifting in mind, Thern’s Big
Red Rider Personnel/Utility winch series adds a desired dimension to an air
tugger line already growing in popularity within the oil and gas and offshore
Thern is also pleased to announce ABS Type approval for its Personnel/Utility
air winches, certifying that Thern’s line is manufactured to the highest
industry standards. TA2.5 and 5 Utility models have also received ABS Type
approval for ship mounting applications. Third party ABS certification is
available per request on all units.
“Thern continues to experience a high level of interest in our air winch
line”, says Bill Sievers, Marketing Development Manager with Thern.
“Operators in the field are interested in the rugged construction and smooth
operation of the motors and valves.”
Increasingly popular in the construction, marine, oil and gas and mining
markets, Thern air winches are designed to provide lifting and pulling power
on job sites where electrical hookup is either hazardous or unavailable.
