Lift Magnets cannot be visually inspected alone. Lift Magnet Failure is often the result of internal damage to the magnetic material and is not evident by simple visual inspections that can be performed on other lifting devices. Our Lift Magnet Testing and Certification Service performs both a thorough visual inspection and functional testing of your magnetic lifting products using testing techniques and equipment that meet or exceed the ASME B30.20 Standards for Below-the-Hook Magnetic Lifting Devices. These performance tests are often referred to as Breakaway tests.
Proper breakaway testing of a lift magnet will determine the maximum lift capacity of that magnet under ideal conditions. The outcome of the test allows the operator/owner of the lift to determine if the magnet meets the rated Working Load Limit (WLL) or lift capacity as designed by the manufacturer. After testing, We provide documentation of the testing and a certificate of conformance if the magnet meets the manufacturer’s labeled rating.
