Lifting Equipment Inspection

Inspection of any load rated Lifting Equipment is vital and should be undertaken between every 3-12 months depending upon the intensity of usage. Failure to inspect and certify lifting gear regularly by a qualified LOLER inspection body can result in your company not being covered by insurance in the event that the item involved was neglected from an inspection.

Should the unspeakable happen, the company involved may be sued or fined heavily, this can also negatively impact on the persons involved in organising the inspections and maintenance.

Inspection is very important as a qualified engineer that has competent inspection skills will easily identify any abnormalities very quickly and efficiently while understanding the implications that the abnormality can cause. Much like a doctor for lifting gear the inspector can assess the required issue and recommend the steps to take in order to correct the problem, this may be just a minor replacement part such as a safety catch or something more complex that would require the company the scrap the item and replace it if the cost of repair is close to or outweighs a new item. Intense usage demands reliable products and requires more frequent inspection and replacement of spare parts or a total new item.

Engine Cranes- How Do They Work?

Most commonly used in the automotive industry Engine Cranes were designed to lift, transport and lower engines with a hydraulic boom while being supported by a set of sturdy legs that feature wheels fitted for ease of transport once the engine had been removed from the bay.

Firstly the engine should be freed from any securing bolts and screws, then it should be rigged up using an engine sling, the crane can then be brought in with the stand wheeled under the load (under the car) the crane boom can be lowered using the handle that operates the hydraulic ram.

Once lowered the chain sling should be connected to the crane hook, the engine can now be raised using the handle that operates the hydraulic ram, pumping the handle raises the load, once clear of the engine bay the load can be transported and worked on.

For safety reasons the crane boom can only operate in an vertical operation, this is why the sturdy legs are positioned under the load to prevent the Engine Crane from tipping over when lifting or transporting.

The Worlds Smallest Electric Chain Hoists

Size is everything! Well, in lifting at least! The size of your electric chain hoist may pose some serious problems when trying to integrate a hoist into a small or confined area. For this reason mini chain hoists have been designed and produced to the required standards.

For some reason along with small often comes only a small supply of power; one phase. For 90% of chain hoists on the market this poses a giant problem, 90% run on three phases of power! However the clever people over at Yale Hoists have already thought about this problem and provided the optional 1 phase series in 110v or 230v options.

The Yale CPS Electric Chain Hoist is the worlds smallest electric chain hoist by far, from the image below you can see it comfortably sits in the palm of your hand, easy to handle, lifting up to 250kg thats a 1/4 of a tonne! Incredible for such a small machine, the Yale CPS just keeps on pulling. Fitted with a top hook for easy installation and removal, this unit can also be combined with a beam trolley or beam clamp allowing horizontal travel or static positioning on the beam.
