Load monitoring in foundries and other high temperature environments is very important. The use of a load monitoring system allows a foundry to carefully control the addition of additives, preventing waste and giving the foundry greater control over the composition of their metal.
Controlled cable tensioning of overhead electricity and communication lines helps reach optimal cable tension while avoiding damage to cables due to changes in cable length caused by environmental influences A wire pull test is also very important in suspension bridges, antennas and large tents that are supported by guy wires.
Bollard pull tests are conducted in order to check a tugboat’s pull force capability. Ron™ Dynamometers are often used for bollard pull tests and drag force measurement of vehicles, like tractors and other types of towing machinery.
Periodical proof tests are performed to lifting equipment (hoists, winches, cranes, shackles, hooks, etc.) and load bearing structures (gantries, anchor points, etc.) to ensure that they perform to their specifications, as well as to required standards and regulations.
In the wind power industry, Eilon Engineering load cells, dynamometers and crane scales are increasingly being used during the installation, proof load testing on hoists, hoist overload prevention, and other kinds of wind turbine maintenance, controlled tensioning of underwater power cables, measuring the tension of a tower guy wires, installation, and more.
Ron StageMaster for safe stage rigging and Ron CraneMaster for heavy complex lifting can monitor real time changes in hundreds of lifting/suspension points and show them as a real time load map on one screen while their exceptional battery life (5000 hours) enable continuous load monitoring for months.
