Dillon dynamometers and tension meters are used within the maritime/shipping industry for a variety of tasks including lifting applications, life boat testing, monitoring pulling strain by the tug boats as well as ensuring correct tension on masts, rigging and towers by helping to reduce man hours and providing accurate tension readings.
Safe and successful lifting pulling operations depend, in large part, on the continued safety of the equipment and accessories that are used. Failures in this kind of equipment can result in significant or even fatal injuries.
Health and safety law therefore places a number of specific obligations on those providing, controlling and using this equipment to properly manage those risks. Dillon provides the means of measurement to ensure that each test is carried out accurately and safely for both the equipment and the people involved.
