Important information regarding ASME PDFs


There is a newer edition of this document available.

ASME has been defining crane safety since 1916.

Volume B30.17 includes provisions that apply to the construction, installation, operation, inspection, and maintenance of hand-operated and power-driven overhead and gantry cranes that have a top-running single-girder bridge, with one or more underhung hoists (see B30.16 Volume) operating on the lower flange of the bridge girder, used for vertical lifting and lowering of freely suspended, unguided loads (see Figs. 1 through 5). The requirements included in this volume also apply to cranes having the same fundamental characteristics such as polar gantry cranes, cantilever gantry cranes, semi-gantry cranes, and wall cranes. Requirements for a crane used for a special purpose such as, but not limited to, non-vertical lifting service, lifting a guided load, or lifting personnel are not included in this volume.

B30.17 is to be used in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the ASME B30 series of safety standards.

Careful application of these B30 standards will help users to comply with pertinent regulations within their jurisdictions, while achieving the operational and safety benefits to be gained from the many industry best-practices detailed in these volumes.

Intended for manufacturers, owners, employers, users and others concerned with the specification, buying, maintenance, training and safe use of overhead and gantry cranes with B30 equipment, plus all potential governing entities.
