Tensology Uses Crosby SP COLT to Measure Elevator Rope Tension

Posted by Crosby on Feb 13, 2019 9:05:08 PM

Tensology has used Crosby Straightpoint’s (SP) Clamp On Line Tensionmeter (COLT) to measure tension on eight .74in (19mm) diameter ropes that lift a very heavy, 50t capacity elevator at a major UK steel facility. Tensology used the COLT, which measures tension up to 11,000 lbf (lb. force) / 5,000 kgf (kg force) and up to 1 in. / 25mm diameter, to verify that each of the eight newly installed ropes were under the same tension. Any variance would have created a safety issue when the elevator was returned to work delivering materials to different levels of the steel-making factory.

Devil is in the Details-CrosbyIP Screw Style Clamp

Posted by Crosby on Jan 31, 2018 8:03:05 PM

"Devil is in the Details" 

The CrosbyIP IPSC10 screw style clamp is suitable for use in positioning and turning steel plates and sections.  TheCrosbyIP Logo.jpg pivots (clamp pads) of screw clamps are usually small in size, but actually do all the hard work. When it comes to safety of life and load, CrosbyIP takes care of every little detail of their clamps. The pivots of CrosbyIP clamps undergo a proprietary hardening process, resulting in a strong, yet ductile core and an extremely high surface hardness. To make sure that the pivot keeps the specified hardness and strength, no further surface treatment is done, as this may induce unwanted reactions (such as hydrogen embrittlement).

So, whatever you are lifting or handling, choose CrosbyIP Lifting Clamps
