Delta Rigging & Tools, Inc., a provider of lifting and rigging products and related services in the United States, says it will offer 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 million pounds 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-million-pound 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 U.S. have the ability to satisfy local testing needs ranging from 20,000-700,000 pounds, both vertical and horizontal.

“To date most of Delta Rigging & Tools destructive and nondestructive testing has been focused on wire rope and lifting slings,” said Tom Hudgins, VP of Sales and Marketing at Delta Rigging & Tools. “With the addition of the 3-million-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.”
