RUD 16 ton Weld-On Load Ring
RUD’s VLBS load rings are forged out of 100% crack detected high strength material CrNiMo with 2 patented inner supporting lugs. The optimized support shape at the suspension ring enables a strong support at loads 90å¡ to the plane of the eye. A protected spring keeps the ring bracket in every required position, and also reduces vibration induced noise.
The VLBS load rings allow a full pivot of 180 degrees from the weld point, making lifting and lowering of loads an easy process, diminishing concern of tilting and uneven weight distribution of loads.
A major advantage of the VLBS load rings are that they offer a higher working load limit of up to 50% stronger than previous models giving customers a greater degree of confidence and accuracy in lifts, definitely a deciding factor when considering safety and accuracy of lifts.
The VLBS load rings are coated with a heat sensitive paint, unique to RUD’s VIP range of lifting equipment. The heat sensitive paint is an exceptional innovation, the load ring will change color once it has reached temperatures above (200 degrees C). The changes in color allows you to monitor how much heat the load ring has been exposed to ensuring your load rings are safe and working effectively. Extreme heat can reduce the working load limit; therefore the heat sensitive paint enables you to make assured decisions on future lifts, a must have indicator for heat sensitive working environments.
