ABA Weldable Load Ring
The RUD ABA load ring is forged out of the high strength material CrNiMo, quenched and tempered and surfaced in phosphate for improved material strength and wear resistance. The ABA is loadable in any direction and has a safety factor of 4:1.
The ABA provides the ability to check the load ring for damage and wear, via the innovative patented wear marking on both the inside and outside of the body of the load ring. The ABA therefore offers a distinct safety benefit over other load rings.
The patented wear marks allows the user to know if there is more than 10% wear on the item, more than 10% wear on a lifting point means the item must be removed from service. Therefore offering an ultimate safety factor.
The wear marks serve as a dual function because they also show the angle of the sling or attachment point relative to the ABA.
