Destructive Testing

Destructive Testing

Franklin Offshore Australia is NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited to carry out Destructive Testing on a range of Rigging and Lifting Components.

We can carry out testing to Wire Rope, Fibre Rope, Chain & Fittings. All testing is carried out in controlled environment within our testing facility.

The item in question will be installed into our test bed, and a tensile force is then applied until we reach the Ultimate Break Load of the item. This type of testing is performed in a controlled environment. Usually at approved testing laboratories. This is so that the trained personnel that carry out the testing remain safe and so that the results of the tests are recorded accurately.

The data received by our Calibrated Load cell is then recorded and a certificate of the test is then issued.

Destructive testing ensures your rigging and lifting components meet specific equipment standards (Australian Standards, DNV-GL, EN, International etc). These standards dictate certain safety factors that Lifting and Rigging equipment must meet before it can be used for lifting, pulling or other applications.
