OFFSHORE MOORING MACHINERY FOR OPTIMUM UTILIZATION OF STEEL WIRE ROPE

Extensive full scale tests of a twindrum traction winch for 3 inch diameter wire rope have revealed that the drum grooving system is important for optimum performance of the winch and the wire. The back tension shall be sufficient, but not too large. In a chain/wire system it is important that the pitch circle diameter of the connecting link is close to that of the wire during the passage over sheaves.
