HOISTING OPERATIONS
ALTERNATIVE HIGH STRENGTH HOIST ROPES

Previously, we have discussed the depth limitations of certain types of drill rigs because of the safe working load of the steel wire rope that is used in the hoisting process. The limitations can severely affect the application of these drills therefore ways to increase the depth capability need to be explored.

There are two main ways to increase depth capability:

1. Change the method of drillstring tripping

2. Use a stronger hoist rope.

These articles explore synthetic ropes and ultra-high strength steel wire ropes as viable alternatives to using a stronger hoist rope.

From the community…

We received an outstanding account from a CSO in response to an accident alert we put out in June last year. We would like to thank Chris for sending us his thoughts and encourage the community to do the same.
