Steel Test Weight Rentals

Serving Virginia
Hydro-Wates® provides proof load testing services and water bags to buy or rent to companies across the U.S. and throughout the world

Hydro-Wates maintains an extensive rental inventory of steel test weights to allow for proof load testing cranes, winches and beams in low headroom and confined space applications where the use of water filled test weights would not be possible. Our individual steel test weights range in size from 25 lbs up to 2,500 lbs, with the larger weights configured to enable stacking on lift stands.

Steel & Cast Iron Weight Capacities

  • Handheld, Cast Iron NIST Class F: 25 lb & 50 lb sizes.
  • Stackable Steel Weights: 1,000 lb, 2,000 lb & 2,500 lb individual weights, stackable on lift, stands up to 10 tons (20,000 lbs)     each.

All of our weight carrying stands and baskets have been designed and engineered by licensed professional engineers, and are provided with extensive certification packages. All weight carrying appliances have been proof load tested to a minimum of 200% of working load limit (WLL). Each individual test weight can be provided with a scale weight certificate traceable to ASME and NIST standards. 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 rental steel test weights are suitable for use in many industries, including: oil & gas, maritime, power generation, construction, and military. We can also design, engineer and fabricate custom lift frames to suit your very specific project application.
