Any new lifting equipment that goes into circulation must be tested prior to use and all equipment purchased from Ranger arrives on site colour-coded, tested and updated in your online register. With NATA accredited testing capacity we have the facilities and expertise to test a broad range of lifting and rigging equipment.
Our mobile testing services, including our new large testing trucks, ensures the majority of your lifting equipment can be tested on-site. Not only does this save time on transportation costs and downtime, but it also provides reassurance to your team who have peace of mind knowing all their equipment is still on-site.
FIXED BED TESTING
Our in-house test bed has a testing capacity of 100t and a test length of 11m. The flatbed allows testing of spreader and lifting beams as well as most other fabricated or engineered lifting equipment.
In addition to our 100t test bed, we have 3 other fixed test beds to cover a range of tests on a variety of products.
WATER BAG TESTING
Water bags can be used to test a large range of lifting equipment and structures including tower cranes, gantry cranes, flight decks, lifeboats, bridges and walkways. Water bags have also been used to test the structural integrity of floors, platforms and engineered hydraulic systems.
HEIGHT SAFETY TESTING
The team at Ranger are highly experienced at designing and installing height safety systems. Our network of engineers, consultants and certified installers can install systems strictly to manufacturer’s specifications and the technical requirements that comply with all Australian Standards.
Current Australian Standards state that all height safety and confined space equipment must be inspected by an accredited company at no more than 6 monthly intervals for all soft manufactured items and 12 monthly for all installed systems and anchor points.
LIFTING POINT/PAD EYE TESTING
Ranger’s lifting point/pad eye services can test pad eyes, lifting lugs and eye bolts in order to ensure the lifting load will not be compromised. We can accommodate any capacity and have 10 tonne through 30 tonne maximum capacity pad eye testers on site.
DEAD WEIGHT TESTING
Our in-house test bed has a testing capacity of 100t and a test length of 11m. The flatbed allows testing of spreader and lifting beams as well as most other fabricated or engineered lifting equipment. In addition to our 100t test bed, we have 3 other fixed test beds to cover a range of tests on a variety of products.
Magnetic Rope Testing (MRT) is a method of checking for defects and deterioration in steel wire ropes. MRT works by fully magnetising a section of rope and then detecting and measuring changes to the magnetic field caused by broken wires, corrosion, wear or mechanical damage.
In support of visual inspection we offer comprehensive non-destructive testing and examination services including eddy current, magnetic particle testing and ultrasonic testing. Non-destructive testing (NDT) or non-destructive examination (NDE) is both a simple and effective testing method for a range of lifting equipment.
