Mobile Inspection, Load Testing and Re-Certification Services
Unirope provides Mobile Inspection and Load Testing Services throughout the Province of Ontario and in Quebec around the Montreal area.
Provincial Labour Laws and the resulting Health and Safety Acts require regular inspection of rigging and lifting equipment. Users have the choice of sending their rigging and lifting equipment to our facilities to have them inspected, proof tested and re-certified. However, even under the best of circumstances such equipment is taken out of operation for some time as it needs to be transported to- and from our plants. In many instances, this is a well accepted and a very practical solution and with some high capacity rigging equipment, remains the only option to apply a proof load of up to 600 tons at our stationary in-plant proof test machines.
But in many manufacturing operations users cannot afford to have their slings, shackles, plate clamps, eye bolts etc. out of service, even a short period of time.
So, instead of YOU coming to US we turned things around and WE will come to YOU. We have a full crew of qualified and certified rigging inspectors supported by 2 mobile test beds and support vehicles capable of testing up to 150,000 lbs (75 tons equivalent to a Proof Test load of a 35 ton shackle or a 1-1/4″ chain sling).
We come to your place and
take a full inventory of your rigging and lifting equipment (or verify against previous entered data)
enter this into our on-line database to which you have FULL access through any computer, laptop, tablet- or phone device connected to the internet,
inspect your equipment according to applicable standards (in most cases these are the ASME B3 series of Standards)
when possible complete required repairs on site,
attach a new capacity- and FIELDID tag to chain slings or attach a inspection tag, sticker or barlock
load the equipment to the applicable proof test tension (between 125% and 200% of Lifting Capacity, depending on equipment type and class)
enter the inspection results into the database,
enable you to print Test Certificates and have all inspection results readily available for the next Health- and Safety Inspection.
We will amaze you with our comprehensive service. Your worries and concerns about the safety and condition of your rigging and lifting equipment have just gone away!
Our Mobile Test beds have a capacity of 150,000 lbs Proof Test, 22 ft usable length. This covers most industrial sized chain slings up to a chain diameter of 1-1/4″.
With an on board Diesel generator the units are self sufficient and can operate truly ‘in the field’. However, we also have provided plug-in capabilities to hook it up to your existing power grid.
Total weight of the rigs are about 10 tons and that includes spare parts, compressors, heaters, fans, and all required tools.
Your test data is captured via an electronic load cell into a lap-top- or hand held computer unit. This enables us to process FIELDID tags and send all test data via the internet to a remote server so you can have access to all test related information from your local computer. This test data is accessible via the internet using HTML language so NO additional software is required, just a password.
