Regarded as one of the best ways to ensure the safety of your rigging and lifting equipment, water bag proof load testing is also less expensive. With our water-weight bags, you can readily test rigging and lifting hardware such as cranes, lifeboats, and structure strength, among others.
Water bag test is also a less time-consuming, more economical, and better way of proof load testing your hardware. It significantly reduces transportation costs, storage and handling issues, rigging time, and overall testing expense.
And there is no better place to avail the best water bag proof load testing than Holloway.
Proof load testing (on-site and off-site) is necessary to ensure safety. Plus, OSHA regulations require your lifting and rigging hardware to be in excellent working conditions. That’s where water bag proof load testing comes in.
The water weight bags can be an excellent alternative to traditional solid weight testing. Here are a few undeniable benefits of using water weight bags for proof load testing.
You can simply roll up and pack the empty water weight bags. They are made from lightweight, pliable fabric, making it easier to roll up and transport them to the rigging and lifting site. You can use pick-up trucks and small commercial trailers to transport water weight bags. It’s easy and cost-effective.
Shock loading can be a huge concern when using solid weights for proof load testing. It can result in a significant loss of strength or durability of a wire rope. With water weight bags, test loads get added gradually. This helps you identify the hoisting/ braking capability of equipment.
With water weight bags, you can add a virtually unlimited number of test loads. All you have to do is alter the weight using water meters or force dynamometers. This allows you to add accurate test loads and inspect your equipment thoroughly.
Another advantage is that you don’t need to lower the test load. You can drain the water from the test bags. This can be useful when proof testing in hazardous areas.
The water bag load test 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.
