Sockets attached to steel wire rope, used for lifting, anchoring system, anchor cables of oil platforms, towing cables or for fastening cables in construction purposes such as bridges, roof construction etc.
Sockets are the strongest steel wire rope end fitting available, and if they are assembled in the proper way they can meet at least the breaking strength of the steel wire rope.
Spelter sockets open, closed and wedge, SO1, SO2 and SO3 are used for lifting, rigging, towing and constructions. CR and CRD sockets, SO4 and SO6 are used in anchor lines for temporary and long term mooring between the chain and wire rope.
Instructions for use
Standard pins are normally used in non permanent and pick and place applications.
Safety pins are used for more permanent applications or where the load may slide on the pin causing rotation of the pin.
Resin: Before use please read carefully the instructions of the resin manufacturer. In case of incorrect use of the resin, our spelter material can result in an unsafe termination.
More information can also be obtained from your wire rope supplier.
Always clear the wire rope broom and socket basket from dirt and grease. Make certain that the broomed wires are evenly spaced in the basket, and that the wire and basket are aligned with one another.
