Stainless Steel Swivels

Contact us now Slingco stainless steel swivels are designed to the highest specifications for underground and overhead pulling applications. All stainless steel swivels are stringently quality tested and inspected to ensure optimum reliability and performance.

The Slingco stainless steel swivels are constructed from high grade stainless steel, and are designed to allow easy passage through sheaves. Note however that the swivels are not designed to go round bull wheels. The design of the swivel, in tension stringing, avoids any torsional strain accumulation that might cause damage to lines.

Cable pulling applications

When the correct cable grip is selected, cable installation through ducts, conduits and trenches is made considerably easier. The cable grip adds little to the overall diameter of the cable and ‘free passage’ is normally available through sheave blocks and pipes. Cable grips can often be used on a ‘new for old’ cable replacement by applying two grips on a ‘back-to-back’ basis with a solid link or swivel in between grips, allowing the old cable to be used to pull through the new replacement. Swivel links can be used to allow for reduced torque build-up induced by the pulling equipment and inherent lay in the cables themselves.

Stainless steel swivels – working loads

Slingco Swivels are manufactured to operate within the specified working load limit only. If this safe working load is exceeded then the swivel should be discarded immediately and replaced with a new swivel. This course of action should be followed, even if it still appears to be in good working condition).

A higher factor of safety must be applied if Slingco swivels are being used for overhead applications as there is a significantly greater risk of damage to property, personal injury or death.

Slingco stainless steel swivels must only be used by competent person(s).

Note: All Slingco stainless steel swivels are supplied with an additional set of slotted pins.
