About service

The wire rope on a crane needs to be replaced when the inspection results indicate that its condition has diminished to the point where further use could be unsafe.
Even regular visual inspections of crane wire ropes do not ensure the avoidance of a disaster. Visual inspection covers only 20-25% of the rope’s metallic cross-section and is cursory and inaccurate.

In this reason visual inspection should be combine with all available NDT methods.

The MRT Inspection with the use of LRM XXI Diagnostic System detects defects which might not be identified by visual inspection alone.
Crane Wire Ropes Inspection Services with the use of the MRT Equipment manufactured by LRM-NDE Laboratory can detect, localize and evaluate  the defects in all cross section area such as: broken wires, corrosion and wear.  It allows to determine places where high temperature affects to the wire rope as well.

Regular Crane Wire Ropes Inspection according to with MRT procedure and international standards in cooperation with LRM-NDE Laboratory contributes  to:

  •  increase safety,
  •  maintaining production continuity,
  •  scheduling rope changes according to wear,
  •  increased the lifetime of ropes 
  •  increased savings.

Crane Wire Ropes Inspection Services are carried out according to LRM-NDE procedure and ISO 4309:2017 Standard  – Cranes — Wire ropes — Care and maintenance, inspection and discard.

LRM-NDE Laboratory  also carry out with use of the LRMXXI Diagnostic System the Inspection of Stacker Reclaimer wire ropes.

The Stacker Reclaimer wire ropes inspections are performed in the full range:

  •  MRT Inspection of full available length of wire rope
  •  detection of defects in the external layer of wire rope in socket terminations for wire ropes of  lock coil  construction.

Crane Wire Rope Inspection and Inspection of Stacker Reclaimer wire ropes are performed by a person competent in the operation of MRT equipment and interpretation of trace data.

LRM-NDE provides expertise with recommendation regarding further utilization of wire ropes.
