Magnet Sales’ load testing service enables companies that use these magnets to keep a regular check on their lifting magnet’s safety and safe lifting capacities as specified in Australian Standard No. AS 4991, section 6.9, which covers magnetic lifting equipment and magnet load testing.
The lifting magnet load testing service involves testing the breakaway force of the magnet on materials of various thicknesses at up to three times the work load limit of the lifting magnet being tested. A Certificate of Tensile is provided to the owner on completion of the load strength testing service.
The lifting magnet load test is considered an important safety check by many responsible companies in Australia with the frequency of testing to be determined by the owner based on the usage of the lifting magnet.
