INSPECT POWER PLANT SLING Continued
Dimension L or reach is the distance between the bearing point of hook to bearing point on
coupling link while under a light load.
If identification tag attached to chain leg does not contain reach dimensions, then dimension
L must be calibrated prior to use for each chain leg and entered into maintenance record. At
each inspection, chain length must be compared with initial inspection.
If length (L) between bearing point of hook (1) and bearing point of coupling link (2) while under light load is
greater than the maximum in Table I, remove sling from service.
