Testing the Load: Modulift Spreader Beams Perform Huge 2420MT Load Test

Modulift, the market-leading manufacturer of modular spreader beams, was recently involved in an exceptionally heavy load test in Dubai.

Two MOD 1000 spreader beams were used in a crucifix configuration to perform the test, with each beam lifting a load of 990t, and the remaining load being supported directly by the crane hook.

The project was a collaboration between several specialist equipment suppliers across the world, with 600T & 500T P-6043 Green Pin shackles provided by Royal Van Beest; wireless load links, load pin shackles and T24 electronics from Load Monitoring Systems, 110t & 50t Waterbags and Cable Laid Grommets & Round Slings manufactured by Liftek International.

Sarah Spivey, Managing Director at Modulift, said: “It’s encouraging to see our beams being used as part of such a demanding project, a real testament to the quality of our products. The MOD 1000 is ideal for this type of lift due to its relatively low self-weight. Our spreader beams are specially designed to provide a lightweight solution so that cranes can work at maximum capacity.”

All products within the Modulift Spreader Beam range are compliant with ASME, BS and DNV standards. Capacities range from 6t –  3000t and can be re-used without the need to re-test or re-certify even when dismantled and re-configured, wherever the lift is, anywhere in the world.
