Using TEUFELBERGER's high performance steel wire ropes as hoist ropes on offshore cranes and subsea winches that are continuously exposed to brutally harsh environmental conditions really puts them to the test. The EVOLUTION TK16, a rope that lives up to expectations day after day on oil platforms and ships around the globe, can withstand such conditions easily. 

Benefits of EVOLUTION TK16:

  • Extremely resistant to corrosion, external environmental influences, and the ingress of dirt thanks to its PLASTFILL® insert and the resulting perfect permanent lubrication of its core.
  • Excellent spooling performance due to its extremely high dimensional stability under lateral pressure, even in multilayer spooling operations
  • Highest operational safety due to its high breaking forces and excellent torsional characteristics made possible by the harmoniously balanced rope structure
  • Longer lifetime and maximized cost-effectiveness thanks to the wear-optimized and rope-friendly SUPERFILL® compaction of all strands
  • Operational safety due to the perfect lubrication of the core thanks to the PLASTFILL® insert
  • Special lubrication for applications with active heave compensation (AHC) systems that is ideally designed for high temperatures and extreme lifting heights
  • Consistently tight diameter tolerances achieved with the unrivaled SUPERFILL® compaction method; hence, perfect spooling performance even in combination with long rope lengths
