RUD Chains Launch the ACP Turnado Hoist Ring

Unique spring mechanism, enhanced & strengthened shape with 30% increased working load limit

RUD lifting equipment is highly valued for their quality and innovative design features across a range of industry sectors including offshore oil and gas, engineering, industrial, construction, materials handling, aerospace and defence.

Currently, with many conventional lifting points the lifting ring can sometimes stay in an upright position throughout the lift, which leads to a dangerous transverse load and can result in two scenarios.

Firstly, high sheer stresses and bending moments can affect the lifting point and bolt which can consequently result in mechanical damage or breakage. Secondly, high forces can occur when the lifting ring flips or jerks which would make the load drop suddenly and could damage the load and lifting components.

The new RUD ACP Turnado hoist ring turns the lifting ring into the direction of the best lifting angle. Therefore the lifting ring will move freely into the direction of the pull, avoiding any tilting or unintentional reverting of the lifting ring.

Developed by the RUD engineering team, the hoist ring truly offers more. The shape has been enhanced and strengthened at its most stressed areas. It offers an increased working load limit of up to 30% compared to hoist rings of the same size. The hoist ring also comes with RUD’s ICE-Bolt technology which offers steel with maximum strength and high ductility.

Its unique spring mechanism guides the lifting ring automatically into the direction of the best lifting angle and avoids worst case lifting scenarios. Wear indicators, positioned at the critical points of the lifting angle make it easy to identify the wear on the lifting point upon inspection.

Hoist rings are well known for their tendency to kink. The new RUD ACP Turnado eliminates these dangers completely. The intelligent spring mechanism makes sure that the suspension ring turns into the load force direction. The lifting ring design guarantees a safe position of the hook without kinking. The result being the first hoist ring which ensures no kinking.

The RUD ACP Turnado comes with a factory equipped RFID transponder which allows quick and easy management and inspections of your lifting equipment, helping to ensure that your equipment is inspected on time, every time. The NEW ACP Turnado sets the standard. More than just another centre pull hoist ring.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.

Current and Back Issues

Our website also caters for those looking to purchase back issues. To browse Back Issue availability, follow this link: https://www.heavytorque.co.uk/shop/

Annual Subscription (UK/Europe and Rest of the World)
