Compacted wire rope is rope which has been constructed in the same manner as other steel wire ropes equipment, except it has been tightly compacted together. If you want to find out more about the benefits of this type of construction, please read on below where you will find information regarding the 6×36 IWRC Compacted Wire Rope.
The benefits and uses for 6×36 IWRC products
6×36 refers to the number of bundles and strands within the rope respectively. The IWRC refers to ‘independent wire rope core’, which means another construction of this equipment will sit internally, with the 6×36 strands and bundles making up the outer core. This IWRC will have its own numbered construction, say 7×7, which refers to 7 bundles and 7 strands. This means that you will effectively be left with a piece of equipment that is 6×36 + 7×7. We also stock an 8×25 compacted rope.
Rope Services Direct can supply many different diameters of thid 3×36 compacted rope, see the table below for more details.
Once this has been constructed, the whole thing is run through a special machine in order to compact it tightly together. This has just some of the following benefits:
Increased lifting capabilities
Increased levels of strength
Reduced internal friction and abrasion damage
Easier to handle thanks to a smooth and more well-rounded finish
A much lower level of wire breakages
These benefits mean that 6×36 IWRC compacted wire rope is perfect for heavier lifting applications, or operations that have high breaking loads.
