Condor Heavy Services: easily deployable testing weights
For cranes, excavators and other industrial equipment, the test weights of Condor Testing Weights are easily deployable. Relative to water weights our solid test weights are more convenient to apply in industrial conditions. Our test weights and hoisting frames are quickly and easily linkable. Of course we are able to deliver all required certificates. Our transport is equipped with all necessary materials like lashing chains, shackles, ramps, pallet trucks and/or forklift truck. This enables our operators to connect the required test weights on site. If it’s possible we prefer to positions our truck underneath the crane to make the testing even quicker. Otherwise we build the needed test weights on side by using a pallet truck or forklift.
More and more companies, operating in the maritime and offshore industries, recognizes the advantages of the test weights of Condor Testing Weights system for the test of offshore cranes, container spreaders, gantry cranes, inclining etc. All weights and auxiliary tools, like hoisting frames, are provided with a securing system which enables the quick securing for testing or transport. This saves valuable time.
For testing a ship crane from, with for example 120 ton, our relation chose Condor test weights for their stability and compactness. This is achieved by combining and securing the test weights which creates a compact mass needed to place the weights on a narrow pontoon. The required surface of this composition is 5m x 5m and a height of maximum 5,6m.
Condor test weights are used in renewing ways. For example, the weights are rented for the execution of pendulum experiments on ships of which men, by using calibrated test weights, can exactly determine how much, and where, the weights are on deck. This way it is possible to calculate the inclination.
