Take a look at our range of 8×19 compacted steel mill rope which is ungalvanised wire rope designed for use in steel mill and ladle crane applications. Perfect for withstanding the intense heat of a metal manufacturing plant, this type of rope can be made to order by Rope Services Direct.
Benefits of Ungalvanised Wire Rope
In an environment where very high temperatures are commonplace, standard wire rope will not be suitable. This is particularly true of plastic or fibre core ropes, which are liable to suffer serious failures or even combustion in such situations. Molten metal is a hazard in its own right, so strength and resilience are vital for any equipment, including cranes involved in handling it.
Choosing 8×19 construction compacted rope, which has not been galvanised due to the nature of its intended use, will give you access to all of the important properties required for safe lifting in steel mills.
Its excellent load-bearing potential goes hand in hand with its smooth, compacted surface that will make lifting and lowering a breeze.
Our line up of ropes in this category including the 8×25 rope is fairly diverse, so you can buy the right kind for the applications you want to complete. Check out our full wire rope range for lifting tasks of every other type.
