Ultrasonic testing is an acoustic method that enables testing beyond the field of vision and is one of the non-destructive testing methods. A regular check of your SIHGA Pick gives you security and the certainty that your pick-up device will function without errors even after years.

We recommend having the test carried out once a year. At the same time, the required safety assessment according to the operating instructions is carried out for you.

No, because the lifting cycles are limited by EN 13155: 2009 to 20,000 load changes.

TPA KKS GmbH is an internationally recognized and globally active company in the areas of pressure equipment, non-destructive testing, liquid gas, cathodic corrosion protection and occupational safety. TPA KKS GmbH is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group. More about TPA KKS GmbH
