Last week we conducted our first non-destructive testing (NDT) examination on a steel wire hoisting wire. With this technique we have been able to examine the technical state of the steel wire rope and provided the customer with a digital report, which is completely independent, supporting the visual inspection by our examination engineers.
To operate safely, steel wire ropes should be inspected periodically. The primary cause of wire rope failure is internal degradation due to corrosion and fatigue, which can remain undetected by visual inspection. The inspection data enables our engineers to make a better decision about whether the steel wire rope can remain in service.
