In the first meeting with the new editorial Inside SIRTEF, focused on numbers and operations inside our company, we have talked about the importance regarding tests and certified inspections of products as steel wire ropes, rope slings and lifting accessories.
Today we'll see more in detail the test service, considering in particular the results of the tests performed on the special steel wire rope Veropro 10 by Verope, on which we made some checks post selling for one of the major manufacturer of drilling equipment.
We are talking about a 10 compacted strands steel wire rope, especially flexible and highly resistant to wear, as you can see in the technical data sheet.
We used four different ropes in our tests, all installed on the same machine with the diam.mm. 34 pennant equipped with an open spelter sockets at each end.
The audit was conducted after a year from the installation, throughout which the ropes (during periodic inspections) had not given any sign of wear and / or any technical problems. The client wanted to verify the actual state of wear through a deep check, in order to verify if it was possible to reach an higher hours-lasting than the one totalized in this first test.
