Steel Weight Proof Load Testing

Hydro-Wates® provides crane, hoist, and beam proof load testing services using steel test weights in applications where low headroom, restricted access or limited test area prevent the use of water test weights. In many cases they can be more economical than using water test weights, particularly for smaller machines. Steel test weights for proof load testing are well suited for testing the following lifting appliances:

  • Low headroom cranes
  • Small overhead hoists running on I-beams trollies
  • Small jib cranes
  • Cranes located in confined spaces
  • Building elevators
  • Construction elevators
  • Manlifts
  • Forklifts

The advantages of steel test weights include:

  • Low working height, to enable use in limited headroom applications
  • Proof load tested carrier baskets and lift stands to ensure operator safety
  • Compact and capable of being moved into tight spaces, using rollers, if necessary
  • Can be lifted using shackles and other standard rigging hardware
  • Stackable in capacities up to 10 tons
  • Smaller test weights (50 lb) can be hand carried by technicians into restricted areas

Our steel test weights are suitable for use in many industries, including: oil & gas, maritime, power generation, construction, and military. We can also design, build, and fabricate custom lift frames to suit your very specific project application.
