Handling of Wire Rope

DO'S:

  • Lubricate ropes with good quality acid free and moisture free lubricant.

  • Regularly inspect the sheaves, rollers or pulleys – the life of ropes largely depend on there condition

  • Inspect ropes and fittings/terminations periodically.

DON'TS:

  • Do not allow ropes in store to deteriorate.

  • Do not mishandle ropes when uncoiling or unreeling & allow kinks to form

  • Do not use Langs lay with a swivel

  • Do not use a rope with too large groove diameter on drums and pulleys.

  • Do not cut a rope without seizing

  • Do not use rope which is not sufficiently flexible for the size or drum or pulley.

  • Do not load the rope beyond its safe working load. Reduction of safety factor may jeopardize not only rope, but also equipment, job and men.

Note

  • Remember- care in handling, installation and careful inspection gives more life and enormous dividends.
