|Publication Date:||5 December 2005|
The ASME B30 Standard contains provisions that apply to the construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing, maintenance, and use of cranes and other lifting and material-handling related equipment. For the convenience of the reader, the Standard has been divided into separate volumes. Each Volume has been written under the direction of theASME B30 Standards Committee and has successfully completed a consensus approval process under the general auspices of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Within the general scope defined in Section I, ASME B30.10 applies to all types of hooks shown in Figs. 1 through 21 used in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the B30 Standard. Hooks supporting a load in a direct-pull configuration, with the load carried in the base (bowl/saddle or pin hole - see Figs. 3 and 4) of the hook, are covered in Chapter 10-1. Hooks that do not support a load in a direct-pull configuration are covered in Chapter 10-2.
