Proof load testing ensures that items of hydraulic lifting equipment can perform to the required manufacturer's specification. The proof load test is specific to each piece of equipment and includes a thorough examination of the equipment and its operation, including checking for welding flaws, hydraulic fluid leaks and other fundamental mechanical defects.
A proof load test involves applying a load to a structure up to and beyond its stated manufacturers working load limit, ensuring it is not just holding the load but is also not lifting a load beyond its specification. This test demonstrates if the equipment is safe to use.
We perform proof load tests on-site, ensuring that the equipment is stable and holding its load. By choosing Tekcal to carry out your proof load testing, you are opting for a streamlined and straightforward service provider.
