Standard Wire Rope
6X37 CLASS WIRE ROPE
The 6x37 Class of wire rope is characterized by the relatively large number of wires used in each strand. Ropes of this class are among the most flexible available due to the greater number of wires per strand, however their resistance to abrasion is less than ropes in the 6x19 Class.
The designation 6x37 is only nominal, as in the case with the 6x19 Class. None of the ropes actually has 37 wires per strand. Improvements in wire rope design, as well as changing machine designs, have resulted in the use of strands with widely varying numbers of wires and a smaller number of available constructions. Typical 6x37 Class constructions include 6x33 for diameters under 1/2", 6x36 Warrington Seale (the most common 6x37 Class construction) offered in diameters 1/2" through 1-5/8", and 6x49 Filler Wire Seale over 1-3/4" diameter.
HERRINGBONE WIRE ROPE
Herringbone is a 6-strand wire rope comprised of four Lang and two regular lay strands. The Lang lay strands are arranged in pairs, with each pair of Lang lay alternating with one strand of regular lay.
Herringbone wire rope has a Lang lay’s extra flexibility and abrasion resistance in combination with the structural stability of regular lay. It unites the best features of two types of wire rope.
Herringbone wire rope is made with relatively large outside wires to provide increased abrasion resistance to scrubbing against sheaves and drums. Finer inside wires add flexibility and enable Herringbone to absorb severe bending stresses. For these reasons it is well suited to winding applications where both crushing and abrasion occur.
Herringbone wire rope is suited for boom hoist applications and numerous types of excavating equipment (clamshell rigs, shovels, cranes, winches and scrapers).
*Acceptance strength is not less than 2-1/2% below the nominal strengths listed. Tons of 2,000 lbs.
**Galvanizing: For Class A galvanized wire rope, deduct 10% from the nominal strength shown.
