There are numerous amounts of tests for an offshore reefer container and each one is important to make sure the integrity of the product is not compromised.
A few of the tests are found listed below :
Proof Test :
A proof test is a non-destructive tension test of the sling or components.
Prototype Testing :
This is the destructive and nondestructive testing of the materials and components presented for evaluation of the original design of a product. If a Surveyor’s witness is required, this may not be waived under any sections of the Rules, unless it is done by a recognized third party
Lifting Test :
Lifting tests are to be carried out with a lifting set placed at an angle to the vertical equal to the design angle and held for 5 minutes.
Lifting sets used for the prototype testing of the container are not to be used in service.
Lifting tests are to be carried out carefully at a gradual speed to avoid significant acceleration
