RUD Chains Ltd offer over 500 lifting and lashing applications which include both welded and threaded types, covering a working load capacity range of 0.6 to 250 tonne.
Anyone in the industry knows how important safety is when lifting and moving heavy loads. RUD, a market leader for providing safe lifting products has introduced the ABA load ring to its range.
The RUD ABA load ring is forged out of the high strength material CrNiMo, quenched and tempered and surfaced in phosphate for improved material strength and wear resistance. The ABA is loadable in any direction, operational to temperatures as low as -40 degrees and has a safety factor of 4:1.
ABA provides the ability to check the load ring for damage and wear, via the innovative patented wear marking on both the inside and outside of the body of the load ring. The ABA therefore offers a distinct safety benefit over other load rings.
The patented wear marks allows the user to know if there is more than 10% wear on the item, more than 10% wear on a lifting point means the item must be removed from service. Therefore, offering an ultimate safety factor.
The wear marks serve as a dual function because they also show the angle of the sling or attachment point relative to the ABA.
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.
