Load testing and lifting equipment
Proof load tests, or simply proof tests, constitute a fundamental testing method for any load-bearing structure and rigging setup.
The goal of a proof test is to verify the fitness and resistance to strain of equipment used to lift, move or sustain whichever type of weight or mass. This test can be carried out on a single unit (either new or already in service) or on a full product line.
For certification purposes, proof tests can employ controlled loads which are several times higher than those expected during the device’s normal operation.
Seacad has the ability to carry out load test on lifting appurtenances such as close/open containers, lifting baskets, skid mounted equipment assemblies, rubbish skids, gas racks etc. we employ water bags and strain gauges to measure load bearing equipment padeyes to ensure compliance to industry codes and standards.
