O.K.
to use
 
     
YES, Python® Compac 35 ropes can be used with a swivel at the end. In fact, we suggest you use a swivel during installation and the 'break-in' period to get the rope settled. After the break in period you can lock the swivel to stabilize the rope.

When properly used Python® Compac 35 is stable against block twisting. Fleet angles, small sheaves, small line spacing, low block weight will negatively impact this characteristic.
 

Main Applications:
Main- and auxiliary hoist line for mobile- and for all types of construction tower cranes which require a high strength rotation resistant rope construction. Excellent rotation resistant properties make this rope the preferred choice for all single- and multiple line reeving applications.

Rope Characteristic:
This rope is constructed from 16 outer HiPacTM strands over 12 inner HiPacTM strands. The Lang Lay configured strands reduce interlocking while spooling onto multiple layer drums as well as inter strand- and inter layer nicking. Improved abrasion resistance because of increased wire surface contacting the sheave.

This rope is suited to be used on tower cranes as well as mobile cranes. The large number of outer strands distribute the pressures introduced by sheaves and drum more evenly onto the core minimizing the danger of unexpected rope failures because of undetected core deterioration.

Aside from this safety issue PYTHON® COMPAC 35 satisfies the high-strength requirements of late model tower- and mobile cranes which can NOT be met with neither 19 x 7 nor 19 x 19 style ropes. Recommended to be used on grooved drums.

Some sizes of Python® Compac 35 are available in right- AND left hand lay to comply with OEM specifications (LinkBelt, Grove, Favelle Favco, Terex, Krupp, Demag, Liebherr, etc.).

Python® Compac 35 ropes are classified as NON-ROTATING Class I
     
     
Breaking Strengths
Note: The maximum CAPACITY, WORKING LOAD LIMIT (WLL), or LINE PULL of the rope usually is 1/5 of the below stated values. For specific information consult the standards applicable to your rope application.
