ANSWER:

This lifting beam has a few flaws as noted below:

  • It is bent from an overload or off center pick.
  • It has no visible markings. Per ASME B30.20 all below the hook lifters shall have marks including manufacturer identification, capacity, serial number & the weight of the beam.

Also remember, below the hook lifting equipment must be designed to ASME B30.20 & BTH-1.

Thank you to everyone who posted comments!
