Wire Rope Crane Inspection Notes:
Wire ropes of a properly designed and maintained crane will deteriorate throughout their entire service life by two principal degradation mechanisms:
- External and internal fatigue, caused by bending over sheaves and/or winding on drum
- Crushing, caused by spooling on multilayer drums.
While the above types of rope deterioration can be minimized by proper crane design and rope maintenance procedures, they are deemed unavoidable and part of normal rope life.
Other rope degradations, such as excessive wear, corrosion or mechanical damage are considered problems that can be remedied by appropriate preventative maintenance procedures. Corrective measures might include rope re-lubrication, sheave alignment, etc.
