For efficient and safe wedge removal, try the WedgeOut™ hydraulic system for dragline rope sockets
When a safety-conscious customer developed a new dragline rope socket and wedge system, Columbia Steel was excited to help bring it to market.
Keep it simple, and keep it safe
Conventional wedge removal requires heavy hammering — a manpower-intensive and potentially dangerous process.
In contrast, our WedgeOut system uses simple hydraulics to do the job with fewer people and fewer hazards:
- Small hydraulic cylinder releases wedge from socket safely
- Fast removal means less equipment downtime
- WedgeOut system is designed to accomodate the variance in wire rope diameter that occurs during normal service
- System is easy to understand and use
The hydraulic cylinder, shim and hose are sold separately.
All Columbia Steel parts are guaranteed for proper fit, performance and customer satisfaction.
