Manually operated by hand cranking while extending and automatic while retracting.

Capstans and pressure roller arms
The load is transmitted to the wire rope using two capstan drive rollers. Each roller is precisely sized to accommodate the wire rope and feed the wire rope into the rotating tub. The capstans are made from a material that maintains high friction between the wire rope and the rollers, even if the wire rope is lubricated. The wire rope is held tight against the capstans by two pressure roller arms at the entry and exit tangent points where the wire rope contacts.

The load indication system uses a load cell to measure the torque in the system and visually displays the load in the cable.

Lubridryer Assembly
The wire rope is cleaned, dried and can be lubricated using the Lubridryer. The Lubridryer includes replaceable pads that clean the wire and also can be used to provide lubrication to the wire rope. If the rotating tub has been filled with fresh water to wash saline residue off the cable, shop compressed air is fed to the Lubridryer to dry the wire rope as it is reeled back on the rescue hoist. The Lubridryer is equipped with an oil and air shut off to stop the flow of oil and air when not in use.

Easily transported by one person, forklift or tug.

(Optional) MagSens System .
The wire rope structural integrity is measured using the MagSens head. The system requires a customer supplied lap top computer to interface with the system electronics via a USB cable to measure and record permanent records of the wire rope structural integrity. (see the MagSens page for details)
