Multi-Girder/Single Girder Top Running/Under-hung cranes A. The following tests are included on all Overhead Cranes (as applicable):

A complete and comprehensive visual and operational inspection will be made of the entire unit to assure the unit’s structural integrity and compliance with all applicable federal and state regulations. Included are such items as girders, runways, trolleys, end trucks, holding brakes, load brakes, drums, sheaves, pin boss areas, hooks, load blocks, wire rope, warning placards, controls, safety devices and inspection records (OSHA CFR 1910.179, ANSI B30.2, B30.10, B30.11, B30.16, B30.17 with reference to SAE, ASME, and the equipment manufacturer’s maintenance/service bulletins).

Each accessible critical weld will be examined visually with the assistance of non-destructive methods of magnetic particle and/or dye penetrant inspection when deemed necessary (ASTM E-165-83 Liquid Penetrant inspection, AWS D2.0-69 Appendix A, magnetic particle inspection ASTM E-709-85).

B. Our inspection program is based around applicable OSHA standards to include OSHA 1910.179, ANSI B30.2, B30.10, B30.11, B30.16 and B30.17.
