Crane Proof Load Testing Services

Cranes of all types can be load tested using water bags. The use of Hydro-Wates® crane proof load testing services using water bags and certified load indicating equipment ensure compliance with regulatory and certifying authority requirements for periodic crane and hoist load testing.  We can provide certification of proof load test results to nationally recognized standards specified by API, OSHA, ASME, NSTE and others.

The use of water bags for our crane and hoist load testing services is recognized as a safe technique for slowly applying the test load. Crane water proof testing allows technical problems with the crane to be recognized and corrected prior to reaching the full test load.  In addition, load water can be drained without having to lower the test weight.  This would be helpful in situations where the hoisting system or brakes were compromised in some way.

Hydro-Wates® offers proof load testing services to companies across the U.S. and the world. We also offer our proof load testing equipment for rental or sale for conducting your own load tests, whether you are in need of water bags, load cells, pad eyes, or steel weights.
