EA Balancers

EA Balancers

EA Balancers

Ingersoll Rand "EA" series balancers are used for handling multiple (up to 3) loads within a 40 lb (18.1 kg) weight range without the need to adjust the controls.

When the pendant is in the LO- and UN-LOAD position, balancer air pressure is released to allow the lighter loads to be in balance. When the pendant is in the HI-LOAD position, no pressure is released, and the heaviest load can be balanced.

The "EA" series balancers are ideally suited for applications where up to 3 load sizes are frequently lifted, and operator hands-on the part is required. The UN-LOAD position is also often used for handling device balancing (loaded/unloaded).


  • High-, Low-, Un-load control

    Rotary thumb switch pendant selects HI-LOAD, LO-LOAD, or NO-LOAD setting

  • Safety

    If the air supply is ever interrupted, the unit will maintain the load in the suspended position

  • Standard emergency cable retract brake

    If the load is accidentally lost, a spring loaded centrifugal brake automatically stops the rapid upward cable travel

  • Standard overload protection

    The load being lifted can never exceed the unit’s maximum rated capacity at a given air pressure

  • Optional down stop

    Eliminates the down-drift of suspended loads within 6 inches (152 mm) if air supply is shut down

  • Cable travel

    Length of wire rope up to 30 ft (9.1 m) with cable travel up to 120 inches (3048 mm) depending on model and configuration

  • Suspension kits

    Suspension kits are available for virtually all enclosed track manufacturers, as well as I-beam, Patented/Hardened track, and Hook mounted configurations
