RUD Chains Offshore Lifting Applications
Heavy Duty Lifting Capabilities 0.6 to 200 Tonne
RUD manufactures a range of lifting and lashing applications that guarantee ultimate safety when lifting and moving heavy loads. Offering over 500 different tested and certified lifting/lashing points for bolting and welding. Their products have been increasing popular across the offshore industry, due to their heavy lift capabilities of 0.6 to 200 tonne.
The ICE-LBG-SR super rotation load ring is one of RUD’s latest innovations which possess an array of innovative designs. Firstly, the double SR ball bearing offers the ultimate solution for turning and flipping at high working load limits without affecting the mounting bolt stability. It enables the load to rotate 360° in all directions under load. The advanced ball bearing technology is arranged in a double way which transfers the forces of the WLL into a rotation movement without jerks which avoids unintentional slackening of the fastening bolt.
RUD ICE Chain is widely used across offshore, arctic offshore and extreme materials handling projects due to its extreme resistance to temperatures operating from -60°c to +300°c. The chain is coated with RUD’s ground-breaking pink powder coating which acts as an overheating indicator, which shows the temperatures in which the chain can be safely used. If the chain reaches temperatures of 300°c or above it will turn from a pink colour to brown, then black which shows that the chain is unsafe to use and must be taken out of service.
Established since 1994, RUD’s VIP grade 10 chains have worked across some of the toughest working environments. Although having the same chain diameter as grade 8 chain the VIP range offers up to 30% increase in the working load limit. The chain also offers a remarkable resistance to temperatures operating from -40°c to +200°c whilst offering 100% working load limit at this temperature.
Safety is imperative when working at heights and across potentially hazardous working environments. RUD manufacture and supply a range of fall protection anchorage points that provide an ultimate safety factor by permanently attaching to structures where frequent fall protection is required. They are commonly used across the offshore industry for projects such as wind tower installation and maintenance.
The WBPG 85-200 tonne hoist ring is popular across the offshore and heavy lift sectors due to its impressive heavy lift capabilities. The WBPG is loadable from any side in the direction of the pivot meaning it is suitable for a variety of heavy lift applications.
RUD are well known in the industry for their robust hoist chains which can be supplied to suit a variety of project sizes from 3 x 9 mm up to 32 x 90 mm. The advantages of RUD hoist chain is impressive, offering an extremely high resistance to wear due to its robust surface and depth hardness resulting in a long service life. The hoist chain conforms to EN818-7. type T for manual hoists and type DAT and DT case hardened chain for powered hoists. The chain is calibrated and precision made to be compatible with the drive wheels of manufacturer’s hoists.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lifting and lashing applications combined with their extensive range of products and knowledge in the market, RUD are continually innovating and developing their extensive product range to stay at the forefront of their customers’ demands.
