Wedge sockets are used for field repairs of broken or damaged wire rope. If your rope needs to be re-spliced while on the job you can pass the wire rope around the wedge and pass it through the socket creating a tight fit around the wire rope. Be sure to leave enough wire rope on the “dead end” to use the recommended three wire clamps to secure.
Wedge socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 80% based on the catalog strength of XXIP wire rope. Meets or exceeds all requirements of ASME B30.26 including identification, ductility, design factor, proof load and temperature requirements. Importantly, these sockets meet other critical performance requirements including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, not addressed by ASME B30.26. Type Approval certification in accordance with ABS 2007 Steel Vessel Rules 1-11-17.7 and ABS Guide for Certification on Cranes available. Certificates available when requested at time of order and may include additional charges. Basket is cast steel and individually magnetic particle inspected. Pin diameter and jaw opening allows wedge and socket to be used in conjunction with closed swage and spelter sockets. Secures the tail or “dead end” of the wire rope to the wedge, thus eliminates loss or “Punch out” of the wedge. Eliminates the need for an extra piece of rope, and is easily installed.
The TERMINATOR™ wedge eliminates the potential breaking off of the tail due to fatigue. The tail, which is secured by the base of the clip and the wedge, is left undeformed and available for reuse. Incorporates Crosby’s patented QUIC-CHECK® “Go” and “No-Go” feature cast into the wedge. The proper size rope is determined when the following criteria are met: The wire rope should pass thru the “Go” hole in the wedge. The wire rope should NOT pass through the “No-Go” hole in the wedge. Utilizes standard Crosby Red-U-Bolt® wire rope clip. The 3/8 through 1-1/8 standard S-421 wedge socket can be retrofitted with the new style TERMINATOR wedge. Available with Bolt, Nut, and Cotter Pin. U.S. patent 5,553,360, Canada patent 2,217,004 and foreign equivalents. Meets the performance requirements of EN 13411-6: 2003.
