Lifting lugs on apparatuses; dimensions and allowable loadings


This document is to be used for lifting lugs with reinforcing plate on cylindrical walls of apparatus which are primarily used for process engineering purposes and are made of unalloyed, low-alloyed or stainless steels. In this document, Annex A explains by means of a calculation example how the selection of supporting pins and the calculation of the reinforcing plate is carried out. In addition, the determination of the maximum force FB that can be absorbed is described, taking into account the load-bearing capacity of the cylindrical apparatus wall.
