Rejection standards for steel wire rope
6 x 19 = 114  6 x 37 = 222
Regular lay Lang lay Regular lay Lang lay
12 6 22 11


Note: The regular lay of 6 x 37 is widely selected for the electric hoist. The steel wire rope should be rejected when the broken wire within one lay reaches 22. When even wear or corrosion is found on the external layer of the wire at any section of the steel wire rope, the rejection standards shall be decreased as stated in Table 2
