MOD110H Spreader Beam facilitates vessel crane recalibration

UK-based manufacturer, Modulift, has supplied a MOD110H Spreader Beam to help recalibrate a vessel crane using interlocking test weights from Test & Lift Engineering Services.

Conducted in the northeast of England, the modular spreader beam was used to carry out a lift for a national ship repair company. The lift featured Modulift’s MOD110H Spreader Beam with a 2.5m Equalized Working Load, which provided the necessary support and stability for the crane calibration process.

“The crane underwent calibration at various loads up to 140,000kg,” said Andy Clark, Director at Test & Lift Engineering Services. “This comprehensive calibration process spanned several days, highlighting the precision and attention to detail required for the successful completion of the project.”

To ensure accurate crane calibration, the lift employed modular, interlocking test weights from Test & Lift Engineering Services. These weights, combined with a test weight cradle, securely locked the weights into position and maintained the integrity of the lift, thereby adhering to strict safety standards. Modulift’s Managing Director, Sarah Spivey, said the “successful collaboration” between the three companies “showcases the effectiveness of advanced lifting solutions in critical industrial operations”.

“The seamless integration of Modulift’s Spreader Beam and the careful implementation of test weights demonstrates the commitment to safety, efficiency, and accuracy in lifting operations,” she said.

Modulift was established in 2002 and produces a comprehensive range of lifting and spreader beams, spreader frames, and other custom below the hook lifting equipment. Its products are distributed in Australia by both Bullivants and Maxirig.
