Delta Rigging & Tools offers 3,000,000lb high capacity load testing in Port of Fourchon.

The company offers a solution to the Gulf Coast region's high capacity load testing needs. Strategically located at the InterMoor facility in Port of Fourchon, Louisiana, Delta Rigging & Tools offers load testing services - up to 3,000,000 lbs - to the oil and gas industry and grants customers access to a test bed within 200 yards of the port bulkhead. The testing facility operated by Delta Rigging & Tools provides quick and easy load test options on a wide variety of products - including rope, rope slings, chains and other rigging/mooring hardware.

In addition to a logistically efficient location, the 3,000,000lb test bed is completely computer controlled and monitored to improve the accuracy of the testing as well as reducing errors and maintaining safety. After the pull testing is complete all result certifications are available online 24 hours a day.

Including the Port of Fourchon, which offers the highest pull testing capacities within Delta Rigging & Tools, all of Delta Rigging & Tools' locations across the United States have the ability to satisfy local testing needs ranging from 20,000 to 700,000 lbs both vertical and horizontal.
 
To date most of Delta Rigging & Tools destructive and non-destructive testing has been focused on wire rope and lifting slings.  With the addition of the 3,000,000 pound test bed not only can we provide testing on larger capacity wire rope, synthetic rope and lifting slings, but we can also offer testing for large capacity blocks, elevator links, risers and spreader beams," said Tom Hudgins, VP of Sales and Marketing at Delta Rigging & Tools.  "The Port of Fourchon test bed is a welcomed fit to our current portfolio of load testing services."
