Caldwell’s Standard Quality Assurance
To have your new Caldwell lifter proof tested and a certificate issued, please specify (there is a nominal charge).


Industry Standards
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has developed standards that apply specifically to these types of devices. ASME B30.20 provides detailed information on the classifications, marking, construction, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and operation of below the hook lifting devices. ASME BTH-1 provides detailed information on the design criteria of below the hook lifting devices. ASME B30.9 provides detailed information on the fabrication, markings, usage, inspection and maintenance of lifting slings. These standards serve as a guide to government authorities, manufacturers, purchasers and users of lifting devices. 

DISCLAIMER:
All product designs are subject to change without notice. Products pictures in this catalogue are a representation of a specific design. The product you purchase will be designed for your specific application and may not look exactly like the picture in this catalogue.

Model BEF - Spreader Beam End Fittings

Assembly Information

The Caldwell Model BEF is designed to use A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe as the central structural element between the end fittings. This structural material is readily available at most steel service centers.


The Caldwell Model BEF-2 1/2 requires a 2-1/2" nominal size, the Model BEF-5 requires a 5" nominal size, and the BEF-8 requires an 8" nominal size A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe.


Other requirements are:
• The length of pipe used for this central element must be straight within 1/4" end to end.
• The pipe should have the ends cleanly cut square with its centerline.
• The A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe should not have any weld joint irregularities.
• Each end of the A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe must have the correct diameter holes drilled through both walls and both ends must be in line.
• The A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe used in this application does not need to pass any pressure testing.


The retaining bolts used to secure the Caldwell Model BEF 2-1/2 and 5 to the A53 Grade B, schedule 40 pipe must be a Grade 5 Hex Head Cap Screw 5/8-11 with minimum length of 4-1/2" and 8" respectively. The bolt for the BEF-8 is a Grade 5 Hex Head Cap Screw 1-8 with a minimum length of 11-1/2".


NOTE: Complete assembly instructions are provided with each set of end fittings.

Lifting & Spreader Beams

The same end fittings that build our high capacity spreader beams are available as end fittings only. This allows you to stock one or several sizes of end fittings; work with a local steel supplier to provide cut to length schedule 80 pipe; drill accordingly; and add the required top rigging. Now you can respond to your customers needs with a quickly built, ASME compliant spreader beam.

Model HC-BEF - High Capacity Beam End Fitting

Assembly Information

The Caldwell Model HC-BEF is designed to use A53 Grade B, schedule 80 pipe as the central structural element between the end fittings. This structural material is readily available at most steel service centers. See the above chart for the nominal A53 Grade B, schedule 80 pipe size required.


Other requirements are:
• The length of pipe used for this central element must be straight within 1/4" end to end.

Care & Use

Rig-Master® Rigging Attachments have been designed for specific tasks to withstand the particular forces imposed. A summary of guidelines for installation, inspection, maintenance, repair, safe operation, and operator training of these attachments follow:

INSTALLATION
Below/Hook Lifters shall be assembled and installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, unless other specific arrangements have been approved in writing by  manufacturer. Check for specific maintenance and installation procedures in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

 

OPERATOR TRAINING
Lifters shall be operated in accordance with manufacturer’s operating instructions, and by personnel who have received instructions described in the “Operating Practices” section of these guidelines. Training shall also include instruction regarding:
1. Details of the lifting cycle.
2. Application of the lifter to the load including (according to the manufacturer’s instructions) adjustments to the lifter, if any, to adapt it to various sizes and kinds of loads.
3. Instruction in any special operations or precautions that may be required.
4. Recognition of proper load configuration. For example, preferred operation requires an orderly pattern of stacking.
5. Before assuming responsibility for using the lifter, an operator shall demonstrate his understanding of the lifting procedure to the instructor. The instructor should record, for your personnel evaluation, notes of operator’s demonstrated ability.

 

INSPECTION
The lifter shall be visually inspected by or under the direction of an appointed person on a daily or weekly schedule depending on the nature of the lifter and the severity of the service. Details to look for include but are not limited to:
1. Structural deformation.
2. Cracks in the structural frame, welds, hoist hook attachment
points, mechanically operating parts, any attached slings, clevises
and hooks.
3. Malfunctions during operation of a mechanically operating lifter.
4. Loose covers, fasteners and stops.
5. Faulty operation of automatic hold and release mechanisms.
6. Wear of hoist hooking points, load supporting clevises, pins, slings, linkages and mechanical parts.
7. Missing nameplates and markings. Contact Caldwell for replacements.

 

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
1. A preventive maintenance program should be established for
each lifter by a qualified person based on recommendations made by its manufacturer.
2. A qualified person should have responsibility for repairs. Dated
records and details of repairs and parts replacement should be
carefully maintained by a qualified person, and copies kept in your possession.
3. Replacement parts shall be at least equivalent to the original
manufacturer’s specifications.
4. Keep products clean of dirt and debris to ensure proper and
safe operation.
5. Oil pins and moving parts as required.

Modifications or repairs performed on your lifting equipment without prior written approval from The Caldwell Group, Inc. voids your warranty. Refer to ASME standards for information regarding the liability of repaired or modified lifters.

OPERATING PRACTICES
DO’S

2. The operator shall watch carefully that the lifter is performing
properly during the lifting procedure.
3. The operator shall know the standard crane hand signals.
4. The operator shall only respond to signals from an appointed
person. However, stop signals from anyone shall be obeyed.
5. The operator shall notify a designated person when he considers a load to be unsafe.
6. The operator shall observe the lifter before using. A defect
observed shall be examined by a qualified person to determine if it is a hazard.


DON’TS
1. The operator shall not operate a malfunctioning lifter or one with an “out of service” tag attached.
2. The operator shall not use the lifter for any purpose(s) other than those designated by the manufacturer’s instruction manual.
3. The operator shall not use a lifter when the capacity, weight or
product safety labels are missing or are no longer legible.
4. No one shall make alterations or modifications to lifters without
consulting the manufacturer.
5. No one shall obscure or paint over the manufacturer’s capacity,
weight, or safety markings.
6. Loads shall not be lifted higher than necessary or be left suspended unattended.
7. The lifter shall not lift a load that is not properly balanced for
safe lifting.

 

HANDLING THE LOAD
1. The lifter shall not be loaded in excess of its rated load.
2. Ensure the load can withstand forces applied by the lifter.
3. The combined weight of the lifter and load shall not exceed the
rated load of the crane or hoist.
4. The lifter shall be applied to the load in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommended operating procedure.
5. Lifter ropes and chains shall not be kinked, and multiple part lines shall not be twisted about each other.
6. The lifter shall not touch obstructions during load movement.
7. The lifter shall not be loaded with loose material that might fall
during movement.
8. The operator or other personnel shall not place themselves or any part of their bodies beneath suspended loads.
9. The load or lifter shall not be slid on the floor or other surface.
10. The lifter shall not be used for loads for which it is not designed.
11. If suspended loads are moved manually, they shall be pushed,
not pulled.
12. A preliminary lift of a few inches shall be made to establish that the load is stable.
13. All loads shall be accelerated and decelerated smoothly and slowly.
