Scotload crane load pins are specially designed to be incorporated into many locations within a crane structure depending on its layout.
Our crane load pins can be retrofitted, replacing any existing load bearing pins with ease. We can also supply a complete crane weighing and overload system with the addition of a display / indicator.
Scotload’s subsea load pins have been specially designed to withstand harsh offshore and underwater applications.
Environmentally sealed to IP67 as standard with higher ratings available on request, our subsea load pins can be fitted with wet mateable connectors and are pressure tested to suit different depths.
Scotload’s industrial load pins have been specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions found in industrial environments including extreme temperatures, dust, moisture and vibration.
