criteria for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspection or ISO/IEC Guide 65,
General requirements for bodies operating product certification systems.
All quality control testing shall be performed by an ASNT-certified level II Non-Destructive
Test Technician. The aerial ladder shall be tested in compliance with the current editions of
NFPA 1901 and NFPA 1911. All sub-assemblies are to be inspected before assembly and body
mounting.
Each aerial section shall be tested prior to the assembly of the complete aerial device. Each
section shall be subjected to a visual weld inspection to assure the integrity of the weldment. Die
penetrant shall be used as required to qualify suspected weld defect indications. All turntable
mounting bolts, cylinder anchor pins, outrigger anchor pins, aerial hinge pins, and other critical
mounting components are subjected to ultrasonic testing to detect any flaws.
A magnetic particle test shall be conducted on the torque box, aerial support structure,
outriggers, outrigger support structure and all other structural ferrous aerial components. This
test
shall
be
performed
to
assure
the
integrity
of
the
weldment.
After the aerial is assembled and installed on the vehicle, an operational inspection shall be
made and the aerial shall be tested to comply with the applicable standards in the current
editions of NFPA 1901 and NFPA 1911.
In addition to the above tests, the aerial shall successfully complete the following operational
tests:
1. The completed apparatus shall be placed on a firm, level surface with the aerial
stabilizers extended and down. The aerial shall lift a test weight equal to the rated tip
load capacity, as specified herein, with the aerial at full extension, 0 degrees elevation,
and rotated 90 degrees to either side of the truck chassis. The test weight shall be lifted
from 0 degrees to 15-20 degrees. The test weight shall be suspended from a position
equal to the position of the outermost rung of the fly section or the center of the
platform when so equipped. The aerial shall lift the test weight smoothly and evenly
with no twisting or jerking. This test shall be performed at the normal hydraulic system
relief valve setting. No temporary adjustments to the relief valve shall be allowed.
2. The completed apparatus shall be placed on a firm, level surface with the aerial ladder
stabilizers extended and down. A test weight equal to 1.5 times the aerial`s rated tip
load capacity, shall be suspended from a position equal to the position of the outermost
rung of the fly section (or center of the platform when so equipped), with the aerial in
the straight-ahead position. The aerial shall then be rotated a full 360 degrees around the
vehicle with the aerial at full extension and at 0 degrees elevation (or high enough to
clear vehicle-mounted equipment). The aerial and vehicle shall show no signs of
instability. This test shall be performed with no water in the tank, or hose, ladders, or
removable equipment that would act as a counterbalance in order to simulate a worstcase condition.
3. The completed apparatus shall be placed on a firm surface having a minimum 5 degrees
side slope with the aerial stabilizers extended and down. A test weight equal to 1.5
times the aerial`s rated tip load capacity, shall be suspended from a position equal to the
position of the outermost rung of the fly section (or center of the platform when so
equipped), with the aerial in the straight-ahead position. The aerial shall then be rotated
90 degrees to the downhill side with the aerial at full extension, 0 degrees elevation (or
high enough to clear vehicle-mounted equipment). The aerial and vehicle shall show no
84
signs of instability, and all of the stabilizers shall remain firmly on the ground. This test
shall be performed with no water in the tank, or hose, ladders, or removable equipment
that would act as a counterbalance in order to simulate a worst-case condition.
4. The completed apparatus shall be placed on a firm, level surface with the aerial
stabilizers extended and down. A test weight equal to 2.0 times the aerial`s rated tip
load capacity, shall be suspended from a position equal to the position of the outermost
rung of the fly section (or center of the platform when so equipped), with the aerial in
the straight-ahead position at full extension and at 8 degrees elevation (or high enough
to clear vehicle-mounted equipment). After ten (10) minutes, the weight shall be
removed, and the aerial shall be inspected for any abnormal twist or deflection.
5. The completed apparatus shall be placed on a firm, level surface with the aerial
stabilizers extended and down. The aerial will be positioned at full extension at 0
degrees elevation at some position out of the travel rest and off the side or rear of the
truck. For units without a pre-piped waterway to the tip, a test weight of 220# shall be
applied horizontally and perpendicular to the tip of the aerial at the location of the
outermost rung. The rotation brake shall not release nor shall the aerial`s deflection
exceed the manufacturer`s accepted tolerances. For aerials with pre-piped waterways, a
test weight of 350# will be applied at the location of water nozzle.
Upon satisfactory completion of all inspections and tests, an independent third-party inspection
firm shall submit a certificate indicating that all specified standards have been met.
