Bridge Trolley InspectionInspections and Testing

Craneworks, Inc. inspectors provide complete preventative maintenance and inspections of your equipment. We don’t just stop at the hoist. We inspect the bridge, runway, end trucks, hook, wire rope/chain, controllers, etc.

When Craneworks arrives at your facility, our staff follows an organized plan of action to ensure the most efficient method for completing your US Navy NAVFAC P-307 or OSHA inspections, with minimal interruption. Our inspectors will determine the condition of your equipment by making a physical inspection, observing functional performance and load testing. Inspections are performed by trained, qualified inspectors

With the completion of thousands of inspections, our Chief Surveyor and OSHA Approved inspectors, provide you complete equipment condition analysis and documentation, that enables you, the customer, to correct problems or deficiencies before an equipment failure can occur.

Briefly, our inspections include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Removal of all covers, as necessary, to visually inspect all gearing, electrical components, brakes, etc.
  • A thorough inspection of the hoist structure and mounting system.
  • The upper block and lower blocks are inspected for sheave damage, wire rope grooving, bearing wear, and proper lubrication, hook condition, etc.
  • The wire rope is visually inspected from top to bottom for kinks, crushing, damage or broken wires.
  • Limit switches are inspected and tested. Adjusted when necessary.
  • Units are inspected for oil leaks and oil levels are checked.
