Open Spelter Socket

  • Forged Steel Sockets through 1-1/2”, cast alloy steel 1-5/8” through 4”
  • Spelter socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 100%, based on the catalog strength of wire rope. Ratings are based on recommended use with 6 x 7, 6 x 19, or 6 x 36, IPS or XIP (EIP), XXIP (EEIP), RRL, FC, or IWRC wire rope. Strand constructed with minimal number of wires (e.g. 1 x 7) requires special consideration that socket basket be five (5) times the strand diameter or fifty (50) times the wire diameter, whichever is the greater.

Open Grooved Sockets meet the performance requirements of Federal Specification RR-S-550D, Type A, except for those provisions required of the contractor.
