Wire Rope Integrity Management
We have invested in training and technology for the integrity of your wire ropes.
Using hi-tech inspection methods that go above and beyond statutory requirements, we can detect and measure internal and external faults, and clean and lubricate wire ropes to maximise their lifetime.
Statutory LOLER requirements mandate a visual inspection of wire ropes, but to ensure their reliable safety performance, we recommend enhanced checks using Non-Destructive Examination (NDE). Wire rope NDE has many benefits over visual inspection:
- Speed: NDE can inspect up to 2,000m of rope per hour.
- Maintained standards: NDE can examine the entire exterior of a rope and will maintain a constant standard throughout the entire inspection.
- Inside out: NDE can detect internal corrosion and broken wires which cannot be seen otherwise.
- Evidence: NDE provides physical evidence of the condition of the rope during its inspection.
Our experienced riggers can carry out wire rope changeovers on any rope of any size, including dive wires, ferry ramp wires, crane wires and bridge wires.
