Checking the safety of overhead travelling cranes used for transporting molten materials
Sicherheitstechnische Überwachung von Kranen für den Transport feuerflüssiger Massen [in German]
Since it is considered that the current rules relating to the safety of overhead travelling cranes stipulate only minimum basic requirements for the smelting and refining industry, users stipulate special purchasing conditions and carry out minute inspections. The various points that require consideration in the purchasing and inspection of overhead travelling cranes are described: electrical circuitry, qualification of the manufacturer and quality of design, manufacturing standards, operation, ultrasonic testing, checks on maximum safe working load. Improved quality, a reduction of specific loads, more detailed inspections and more stringent testing requirements have made it possible to achieve a high level of safety on the basis of many years experience. The author emphasises that only cranes of proven design should be used. A brief description is given of organisational procedures.
