Wedge Type Ferrules
ESCO ferrules are made of high strength alloy steel and feature a two-piece wedge that is rifled to provide more gripping surface on the wire rope strands and greater holding power.
ESCO machined wedge-type ferrules permit the make up or repair of chokers and winch lines in minutes – no molten socket metal or swaging equipment is required. Wedge type ferrules may be applied with ESCO Socketfast.
Wedge-type ferrules are intended only for use with new 6 x 19 class or 6 x 37 class, right regular lay, EIP, IWRC rope made to U.S. specifications.
