Our Load Testing Solutions

The use of Hydro-Wates water bags and certified load indicating equipment ensures compliance with regulatory and certifying authority requirements for initial and periodic proof-load testing of below the hook lifting appliances. We can provide certification of proof-load test results to internationally recognized standards specified by Det Norske Veritas – Germanischer Lloyd (DNV-GL), American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Bureau Veritas, Lloyds Register, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), OSHA, and others.

Wind Turbine Spreader Beams

The use of water bags for proof load testing wind turbine spreader beams is recognized as a safe technique for slowly applying the test load. In addition, load water can be drained away at a safe distance without having to reposition or lower the test weights.

Hydro-Wates can also provide custom designed rigging arrangements using company owned high capacity load cells, spreader beams, slings and shackles. We stock this equipment in-house to enable rapid mobilization to your job-site. Our load cells are re-calibrated annually to ensure the measured loading on your beam is reported accurately.

Cargo Container Handling Beams

Hydro-Wates can also provide specialized services to enable load testing of your cargo container handling beams. We perform this service at your marine terminal, so your equipment downtime is minimized. We can also provide all the necessary rigging to interface with your equipment, leaving you to focus on other critical issues.

Whether your spreader beam is located key-side, offshore, in a shipyard, at a power plant, or other location, we’ve got the equipment and expertise to get the job done right the first time.
