Runway Surveys & Training

Harriman Material Handling is a full-line equipment
supplier for material handling. We perform extensive
testing and inspections on all our products to insure
they’re safe to use and operating at peak performance
in your plant. We know that only a well-trained inspector
can deliver the kind of precision necessary to insure
top performance, and that’s why we place such a
premium on training at Harriman.

Inspections

We perform all the inspection and maintenance programs necessary to ensure we are always in compliance with OSHA inspection standards.

We understand the importance of crane and hoist inspections as they promote plant and employee efficiency over time. Continuous inspection:

  • Maintains OSHA compliance
  • Improves the safety of the employees by promoting a safe environment
  • Lessens the amount of down time due to breakdowns or malfunctions
  • Keeps up with basic maintenance issues to prevent costly repairs

We provide both basic maintenance checks and emergency repairs. During all periodic inspections, we’ll test and inspect each part of the material handling system so that if repairs are needed they can be taken care of straightaway, optimizing safety and performance. We’ll perform load testing, non-destructive hook testing, bore-a-scope inspections, and various other check-ups for our preventative maintenance programs.

Load Tests

Load testing is extremely important when it comes to ensuring the peak performance levels and safety of crane and hoist systems. When testing the material handling systems, it’s important to test no more than 125% of the load as a safer system provides for a safer work environment. Load tests are often performed in conjunction with inspections and are completed only after the initial inspection relays the system to be mechanically and physically sound.

Runway Surveys

Having a sound runway system is extremely important to the safety and maintenance of the entire material handling structure. The most common reasons for runway dilapidation are aging systems, misalignment, building settlement, crane overloads, and unrepaired parts. We provide runway inspections that test the runway girder elevation and the alignment and span compliance of the runway. Both visual inspections and non-destructive testing are completed during emergency or regular runway surveys.
