Winch and working lines are used in various applications to lift and lower different equipment. Often used in the mining industry and offshore work, winch and working lines provide safety and reassurance during potentially dangerous working situations. At Redden Net & Rope Ltd, we are proud to offer synthetic winch and working lines in British Columbia. We want your system to be as safe as possible for a longer period, and hence we carry both Samson and AmSteel®-Blue winch and working lines to provide our clients with the strongest and most reliable products available.
Offshore Ropes for Oil and Gas Industries
Working on an oilfield or in the gas industry requires ropes you can depend on. These high-performance synthetic ropes are sturdy while also being easy to control. Our offshore ropes include:
Synthetic Winch Lines
Synthetic winch lines have various benefits over other products, as they are lightweight, ultra-strong, and high-performance. If you’re an offshore operator, you’ll love our synthetic winch lines because they are:
The same strength, size-for-size, as steel-wire rope
80-85% lighter than the same size steel-wire rope
Able to be downsized, reducing overall deck loads
Safe because they don’t snapback like wire cable and they don’t tear up your hands
Able to float, offering additional visibility and safety
Convenient because they are torque free and don’t kink like wire cable
With the use of synthetic winch lines, your existing equipment will be able to handle greater payloads. They also offer better resistance to flex fatigue and cyclic bend over sheaves (CBOS) performance compared to wire ropes. Winch lines come in several configurations to help you get exactly what you need.
Single-drum winches: are common on offshore projects. They allow for collaboration with the winch manufacturer to design a complete system using a holistic approach.
Tapered pick-up lines: are often used on FPSOs for turret pull-in applications. They result in a rope that combines light weight and easy handling of the pick-up end with the high strength required for the buoy pull-in operation.
Traction winches: have several advantages over single-drum winches. They eliminate potential “diving” issues, often reduce horsepower requirements, and they can increase surface friction to make the fiber suitable for a traction system.
Offshore Working Lines
Safe working conditions, maximizing service life, and preventing line failure are top priorities for any offshore company. With working lines from Redden Net & Rope Ltd, you can relax a little bit knowing that you’re getting a quality product. We carry Samson offshore working lines that come with advances in fiber and coating technology and innovations in chafe protection.
For a properly working system, you need more than just a working line. Working line rope systems are not a one-size-fits-all proposition and require consideration for each part independently. Parts to consider include:
Based on your specific needs, each component selected will give you the best overall system and performance. While selecting your working line, you should also consider:
Unique application requirements
Rigging and termination requirements
Proper installation procedures
Factor or Safety (FOS)
Third party certification
