Rope selection considerations for double drum and BMR winders

On Blair or Double drum hoists with two or more layers of winding triangular strand has been used with good success.

When fatigue and abrasion become an issue, CASAR can make triangular strand constructions by varying the number of wires in each strand from 26 (more abrasion-resistant) up to 36 (more fatigue-resistant) to help reduce these concerns.

When the frequency of performing drum end cuts becomes an issue, our CASAR Turbofit M and Turboplast M constructions can help reduce the frequency of performing this task.
