So why choose water bag-proof load testing over traditional testing methods? Keep reading to find out.

Benefits of Water Bag Proof Load Testing

Water-weight bags are an excellent alternative to traditional solid-weight testing. Here are some undeniable benefits of using water weight bags for proof load testing:

  • Easy to transport: Water-weight bags are made from lightweight, pliable fabric, which makes them easy to roll up and pack. You can transport pick-up trucks and small commercial trailers to the rigging and lifting site, which is cost-effective.
  • Prevent shock loading: Shock loading can significantly lose the strength or durability of a wire rope. Water weight bags allow you to add test loads gradually, which helps you identify the hoisting/braking capability of equipment and prevent shock loading.
  • An infinite number of test loads: With water-weight bags, you can add virtually unlimited test loads. All you have to do is alter the weight using water meters or force dynamometers, which allows you to add accurate test loads and inspect your equipment thoroughly.
  • No need to lower the test load: You don't need to lower the test load with water-weight bags. You can simply drain the water from the bags, which is useful when proof testing in hazardous areas.
  • Reliable: Water bag proof load testing is a trusted and reliable way of measuring the strength and durability of your lifting and rigging hardware. Many leading companies, including organizations like OSHA, trust this proof load testing method.
