RESIDUAL STRENGTH TESTING
Residual strength testing can be used in conjunction with inspection and usage data from the field to determine the suitability of continued use and safely refine or extend service life expectations. Samson has a long history of assisting operators and end-users in establishing retirement criteria to maximize our customer’s return on their investment while assuring they are never compromising safety and reliability. Samson is home to the most robust research and development team in the industry, testing and analyzing hundreds of used ropes across various applications and industries each year. Your line replacement schedule will be predictable and manageable through proper documentation and testing.
Samson can test raw materials, abrasion, fatigue behavior, bend-over-sheave performance, and tensile strength. While we manage a variety of standard test methods, we can also support custom testing when your application or equipment requires extra assurance that the products you are using or considering are truly fit-for-purpose and you are ready to integrate them safely into your equipment and operations!
