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.
