Government & Defense Proof Load Testing Services and Equipment
Hydro-Wates® understands the critical nature of the machines used on military installations both on land and at sea. Ensuring the fitness for purpose of this equipment is part of what we do through the use of certified test weights which can be used to load test deck cranes, shipyard cranes, towing winches, refueling winches and frames, gangways, aircraft elevators, vehicle ramps (RO-RO vessels), anchor winches, lifeboat davits, and ROV launch frames to name a few.
Hydro-Wates® can provide government and defense proof load testing services and equipment using both water bags and steel weights. We also offer calibrated load measurement instruments that can be used to verify the force applied with our test weights. The calibration of all of our load indicators can be traced to recognized national and international standards. Hydro-Wates® is a registered US Government vendor and can be viewed under Vendor ID 468501. We are also registered in the US Government System for Award Management (SAM). Our SAM details can be viewed using DUNS 164485802.
Our Load Testing Solutions
Calibrated Water Meters
We also offer calibrated water meters which can be used to measure load water volume into our water bags or client-owned equipment. These meters are also calibrated annually to ensure their accuracy and proper functioning. The use of water meters can be used to verify the load water volume in lifeboat style water bags or for low-headroom crane testing.
Bollard pull testing of tugs and support vessels can also be performed using our calibrated load cells. Pull tests up to 250 tons or greater can be performed using our in-line force dynamometers.
