TCU

The copper ferrule (TCU) is intended for stainless steel wire rope to avoid galvanic corrosion. It is available in sizes from 1 – 30. The pressing of TCU ferrules requires approx 25% higher pressure than the corresponding T ferrule of aluminium alloy.

Art. No: TCU 01 – TCU 30

Description

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
TCU ferrules are made from copper. These ferrules have been validated according to TALURIT™ splicing system, which is within the framework of EN 13411-3. The copper material is not accepted in this standard.

APPLICATIONS
Copper is used together with stainless steel wire ropes to avoid galvanic corrosion in a saltwater environment. The same dies as in aluminium turnback ferrules can be used. The material is high grade copper in soft condition. The ferrules are seemlessly extruded over mandrel.

TO BE NOTED
We do not guarantee the strength of slings for lifting activities made of Copper turnback ferrules. A termination performed according to our instructions will normally withstand a tensile strength of 90% of minimum breaking load (MBL) of the wire rope. Verifying tests must be done in order to secure the strength of the termination.
