Eyelets on apparatuses; dimensions and maximum loadings


This document is to be applied for eyelets with reinforcing plate on equipment which is primarily used for process engineering purposes and is made of unalloyed, low-alloyed or stainless steels. In this document, Annex A explains by means of a calculation example how the selection of lifting eyes (size and number) 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 apparatus base.
