• Delrin Ball Bearing: Delrin™ sheaves with Delrin™ Ball Bearings are used in line application to reduce friction. To provide the maximum load bearing capability, we designed our Delrin™ ball bearing sheaves and inner races with curved surfaces to match the ball races. The resulting sheave has a much higher safe working load than other manufacturers’.
• Aluminum Universal Circuit Sheaves (UC): These extremely low friction ball bearing sheaves accommodate both line and wire. High strength self-contained Delrin™ bearing package and Nomex™/Teflon™ self-lubricating bushing is used in all “UC” sheaves. The combined benefits of the design mean easier turning under the heaviest of loads.
• Aluminum: This configuration accommodates both line and wire, providing a chafe-free surface for line while giving full support to wire to prevent flattening. Hardcoat Anodized 6061-T6 Aluminum offers superior strength and corrosion resistance.
