Crane frictional component exchanges

During recent Committee discussions it was agreed that IMCA’s Lifting and Rigging Management Committee (LRMC) should develop an information note on caution to be taken when renewing brake frictional components (i.e. brake/clutch pad/discs) that are integral to the safe functioning of a crane.

The Information Note addresses:

  • Current situation
  • Brake selection and pre-testing advice
  • Brake acceptance test advice
  • Brakes and clutch maintenance and inspection advice
