ASME BTH-1-2017

Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices

BTH-1 provides minimum structural and mechanical design and electrical component selection criteria for ASME B30.20 below-the-hook lifting devices. The provisions in this Standard apply to the design or modification of below-the-hook lifting devices. Compliance with requirements and criteria that may be unique to specialized industries and environments is outside of the scope of this Standard. Lifting devices designed to this Standard shall comply with ASME B30.20, Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices. B30.20 includes provisions that apply to the marking, construction, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance, and operation of below-the-hook lifting devices. BTH-1 addresses only design requirements. As such, this Standard should be used in conjunction with B30.20, which addresses safety requirements. BTH-1 does not replace B30.20. The design criteria set forth are minimum requirements that may be increased at the discretion of the lifting device manufacturer or a qualified person.
