Air hoists, also called pneumatic hoists, are powered by compressed air to transfer motor-generated force across a series of gears which multiply the force into one that is large enough to lift the designated load. The load is usually lifted by a hook that is attached to a chain, rope, or wire. Air power hoists are used for applications that require continuous or non-stop operation or for frequent and repetitive activities. They typically run at cool temperatures, are less sensitive to dust or humidity, and are lighter in weight than electric hoists. 

When selecting an air hoist, consider the load capacity and lift, according to the specific application. Load capacity is the weight a hoist can handle, expressed in pounds or tons. Lift is the maximum vertical distance the load hook can move a load, expressed in feet.
