Proof and Load Testing

Nicol Scales & Measurement now offers a variety of proof and load testing services. These new testing services include chain, strap and sling testing utilizing our in-house certified press with tension testing up to 100,000 lbs.  We can also provide certified dead weights to assist with crane verifications,  center of gravity testing and other testing and verifications that require certified dead weights.  Contact us to discuss your proof and load testing needs.

In many industries where lifting equipment is used overhead or where items like chains or straps are used as fasteners, OHSA requires periodic proof load testing to ensure these items are up to the challenge. We offer in house proof load testing services up to 100,000 lbs on our certified calibration presses in Houston and Dallas. If you require on site proof or load testing, we can deliver many of our more than 115,000 lbs of certified dead weights to your location. NSM can provide you with written documentation using standards traceable to NIST.
