Wire Rope Slings are popular in construction, automotive, oil and gas, and general manufacturing industries where a variety of heavy loads and rugged conditions exist. They’re also very popular in steel mills and forging facilities where the durability of the rope is really put to the test.
Wire Rope Slings are available in single-leg or multi-leg assemblies and can be used in a variety of hitches including vertical, choker, and basket hitches. The Design Factor for wire rope slings is a 5:1 ratio, meaning the breaking strength of the sling is five times higher than the rated Working Load Limit (W.L.L).
Types of Loops on the ends of Wire Rope Sling which can be customized in different ways: Soft Eye Loop, With Thimbles, With Thimble & Hooks, With Double Ferrules, Flemish Eye and it can be customized in many more ways as per requirement.
Single Leg Wire Rope Sling or Multi Legged Wire Rope Sling has a different pattern to lifts the load:
VERTICAL, or straight, attachment is simply using a sling to connect a lifting hook to a load. CHOKER hitches reduce lifting capability of a sling since this method of rigging affects ability of the wire rope components to adjust during the lift. BASKET hitches distribute a load equally between the two legs of a sling … within limitations described above. MULTI LEGGED SLING have 2 or more than 2 Legs attached to a single Master Ring and have number of slings that can be attached to a load on edges.
Advantages of Using Wire Rope Slings:
• Lower initial cost and lighter in weight than alloy chain slings
• High strength and flexibility in a smaller diameter design
• Different designs and constructions of wire rope provide: Strength, Flexibility, Abrasion resistance, Fatigue resistance, Corrosion resistance
• Braided or multi-part slings: More resistant to kinking than single-part slings, Have high flexibility, Snug up tightly around the load in choker hitches, Quickly regain their original shape after a lift
• Can be used in vertical, choker, and basket hitches
• If the wire rope on sling bridles is damaged, the hardware (master links and hooks) can be re-used—provided that the hardware itself is not damaged
Disadvantages of Using Wire Rope Slings:
• Low strength to weight ratio
• Construction can make it difficult to inspect—especially in and around the core
• Misuse or abuse can cause kinking, crushing, or abrasion—resulting in structural damage and loss of strength
• Not repairable – if it is removed from service, best practices should be followed to destroy and dispose of the sling
• Can be susceptible to internal and external corrosion
• Trade-offs exist between the design and construction: a rope that is more abrasion resistant will offer less fatigue resistance—and vice versa
• Steel core slings should never be used at temperatures above 400°F or below -40°F
What is the ISI Code of Wire Rope Sling?
ISI Code of General Engineering Wire Rope is 2762:2002
What is Third Party Inspection (TPI)?
It is a type of Inspection which can be done for any product by Third Party or Lab that is approved by the Government of India. When we talk about Wire Rope Sling, they check all the parameters of the product like for any manufacturing defects, Dia, Length, Ferrule Quality, Wire Strands and for any single broken wire, is they found everything ok, they issue a Certificate stated – Product Quality Found OK. All TPI charges basic cost for inspection of each sling.
