Our special carburized and hardened sheave wheels last longer and require less maintenance than others in similar applications. In fact, they typically outlast competitors’ by a factor of 10 or more.
And, our sheaves have been shown to increase wire rope life by as much as five times due to the significant reduction in crushing and imprinting that occurs in the throat of a softer sheave wheel. Many manufacturers of wire rope recommend our sheaves to their customers as an economical way to prolong the life of their product.
Netsanet Sheave Wheels provide Superior Wear Resistance:
- Carburized and hardened to 64 HRc or greater
- Throat of wheel polishes under load, reducing friction between the wheel and the wire rope
- High surface strength allows increased load capability
