Socket Replacement: Posidonia's Special Procedure
The socketing service for wire rope involves replacing the cable end not by simply pressing it, but by adding a special resin to its interior.
This special procedure allows for a complete fusion between the wire rope and the socket, without reducing its capacity by up to 10% as compared to a pressed cable end.
Posidonia Service is approved by RINA to perform socket replacement.
Why replace a socket?
One of the main reasons is the safety that comes with having a socket compared to a pressed sleeve and wire rope, which has less load capacity and resistance.
The second reason is the load capacity which increases by 10% compared to a pressed sleeve.
The third reason is the cost savings that come with replacing a socket compared to throwing away an entire wire rope or shortening it by making a pressed sleeve.
Posidonia Service has been providing lifting, anchoring, and mooring services for over 100 years.
