HOW TO INSPECT LIFTING SHACKLES (PART 2)

…continuation

  • Assess operational ambient temperature: -20°C/-4°F to +200°C/+392°F

  • Assess exposure to chemicals. Ensure that the shackle is not immersed in acidic solutions or exposed to acid fumes without the approval of the manufacturer. Exposure to chemicals could affect the integrity of shackles.

  • Conduct NDT where required. Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) or Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI) can be used if the competent person considers it essential to further assess component integrity and produce NDT report, if completed.

  • Testing: Proof load testing is carried out if the competent person considers it essential to further assess equipment/component integrity. Ensure that proof loads comply with manufacturer’s instructions or applicable British Standard or any other relevant verification criteria. The equipment should be thoroughly examined before and after testing.

  • Colour code, if applicable and ensure that it does not cover important information on the shackle. Although, marking is not normally required after thorough examination or testing.

  • Produce a detailed report
