BLP Adds Portable Test Bed
Bishop Lifting Products (BLP), Houston, Texas, which is a 2011 Event Partner for Crane & Rigging Conference and Industrial Crane & Hoist Conference, announces the addition of a 150,000-pound portable proof test truck to its fleet of testing equipment. The portable test bed allows the company to perform on-site proof testing, repair, and RFID tagging services at the customer’s location, reducing downtime and costs for the customer.
The 20-foot long bed is designed to test all types of slings (Twin-Path®, wire rope, synthetic, metal mesh, roundslings, alloy chain, and high performance), rigging hardware, oilfield tools, crane and snatch blocks. The test bed is also equipped with a mechanical wire rope gripper for testing winch lines, raising lines, and pendant lines. It can also be used on the deck of marine vessels if needed.
