Re: Cable Structure Inspection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Wire rope or cable inspections are a very specialized area of work.
Electronic equipment that can detect anomolies inside the "rope" is
used  to locate possible problem areas and then the cable is opened up
and visually checked.
Check with materials testing labs in your area but don't be surprised
if most don't offer that service. I know that Braun/Intertec here in
Portland has some cable inspection capability but have not needed to
use them for that. Hope this helps.
