Descreiption of Winch Apparatus
This industrial Winch Apparatus has been adapted for experimental work. The substantial wall bracket is to be mounted to a sturdy vertical support. A horizontal shaft running through the heart of the unit has an 'EFFORT' pulley attached to its end. Winch Apparatus pulley has a high strength cord wrapped around its periphery and terminates in a load hanger.
At the centre of the winch is a drum that also has a high strength cord wrapped around its periphery. This cord again terminates with a load hanger. Winch Apparatus cord and hanger is termed the 'LOAD'.
The student applies a set of calibrated weights to the 'LOAD' hanger and adds appropriate calibrated weights to the 'EFFORT' hanger to raise 'LOAD'.
The winch has a maximum working load of 300 kg and is equipped with a safety pawl and ratchet.
