O.K.
to use
 
     
YES, Python® Hoist 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® Hoist is stable against block twisting. Fleet angles, small sheaves, small line spacing, low block weight will negatively impact this characteristic.
     
 

Main Applications:
This rope has become very popular as hoisting rope for ship deck cranes. Also used on high cycle tower- and overhead cranes. Plastic coated core prevents premature inner wire breaks. Hoist is a medium strength non-rotating wire rope.

Rope Characteristic:
Constructed from 17 outer strands over a 2-layer 24 strand plastic coated core. The plastic coating prevents metal to metal contact between outer- and inner strands and thus nearly 100% reducing the chance of undetectable inner wire- or strand failures. Plus, the plastic shield locks in factory applied core lubrication. That is pretty fancy, I say!

This rope is recommended for applications with high dynamic fatigue loads where otherwise the core might fail. The plastic core shield acts like a shock absorber much like in other Python® rope types.

Python® Hoist requires grooved drums, preferable with LEBUS grooving.

Python® Hoist ropes are classified as NON-ROTATING Class I

Increased contact points between rope and sheave results in less internal rope pressure and less rope and sheave wear.
     
     
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.
     
Python® Hoist
Non-Rotating Crane Wire Rope with a plastic coated core


Construction:
38x7
Class 34x7

Medium strength, high fatigue resistant non-rotating type. Compacting increases strength and sheave contact area. The plastic coated core increases fatigue life and prevents premature inner wire breaks as well as providing for permanent core lubrication. ALLOWED to be used with a swivel.
