BETAL has been providing proof load testing of all kinds of lifting tools and tackles viz wire rope slings, chain slings, shackles, hooks, connectors, plate clamps, turnbuckles, snatch blocks, links, master links, sockets, and many more.

We operate our test beds with capacities up to 150 ton. At our main testing facility in Navi Mumbai, experienced and certified testing inspectors carry out proof loading of all sorts of hoisting, lifting, pulling, mooring, towing and lashing equipment. These tests are done in accordance with customer requirements or performed according to specific industry standards (for example, periodic testing). If necessary, tests can be witnessed by third-party classification authorities.

All our test beds and equipment’s are calibrated and trackable to National and International Standards. We offer the following types of test on our test bed.

Proof load testing

It is generally performed with the Safe Working Load (SWL/ WLL) of lifting equipment. We perform proof load testing on a wide variety of products with proof loads up to 150 tons These products include shackles, blocks, hooks, lifting beams, steel wire rope or fibre rope, all types of slings, grommets and chains. We also test customised specials.

Break load testing to destruction

Break load and destruction is used to determine the Minimum Breaking Load (MBL) and the Actual Breaking Load (ABL). We carry out these tests on steel wire rope, grommets, wire rope slings and everything that fits in the test beds, which can be loaded up to 150 tons for destructive testing.

Measurement under tension:

Our test beds are also ideal to determine the actual working length of steel wire and fibre rope slings, and grommets. Measurements are carried out with the product under tension.
