SCAW METALS GROUP

Manufacturers of the Haggie brand of steel wire rope used on South Africa’s underground mines, and in many other important applications, has factories in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia which produce high carbon wire and sand, steel wire ropes and fibre ropes and twines.

Scaw’s rope continues to convey men and materials to and from depths of the deepest mines in the world. Ropes of 15 000 meters in length and exceeding 140 tonnes in mass are well within Scaw’s capabilities. Through the expertise developed in designing and producing sophisticated larger diameter wire ropes for the demanding requirements of deep-level mining and deep-sea anchor lines, Scaw’s – steel wire rope operation can justifiably claim to be Specialists in the world of wire and rope.

STEEL WIRE ROPES FOR OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS APPLICATIONS
Scaw has built up its reputation as a leading supplier of anchor lines to the offshore industry since 1986. Supplying ropes into virtually every segment of the offshore industry, such as pennant, drilling, riser tensioning, sand rod and tubing lines. Scaw’s off shore ropes are the leading edge of technology.

The ropes that Scaw supplies to the oil industry can be divided into two categories:
• Ancillary Ropes for offshore use
• Anchor line for offshore application

ANCHOR LINES FOR OFFSHORE EXPLORATION 

Scaw offers a comprehensive range of large diameter ropes for anchor line purposes. They have robust constructions in order to be able to withstand the development process when the drilling unit shifts location from one exploration job to the next.

Using one of the largest closing machines in the world, Scaw can manufacture anchor lines as large as 150mm in diameter in continuous lengths up to the equivalent of 120 tonnes per length. Due to the rough handling anchor lines receive, it is sometimes considered that a galvanised surface is not warranted.

This range of ropes is therefore available as drawn-galvanised or ungalvanized. For rope diameters between 77mm and 103mm, 

a 6 x 49/IWRC construction is recommended. For larger diameter ropes the preferred construction is 6 x 55/IWRC.

These constructions change as the rope diameter increase to ensure that wires having appropriate properties for the application are used. Higher breaking forces are available subject to negotiations as the time of enquiry.

ANCILLARY ROPES FOR OFFSHORE USE 

These ropes are general engineering ropes, suitable for most operations on offshore drilling units other than anchoring. 

The following are the types of lines used under this category:

  • Drill Lines 
  • Sand / Cable Tooling Lines
  • Rod and Tubing / General Purpose Winch Lines 
  • Pennant Lines 
  • Riser Tensioner Lines

STEEL WIRE ROPES FOR OFFSHORE MOORING SYSTEMS 

Scaw has the JUPITER GULF STAR range of ropes for extra strength. The Jupiter Gulf Star range of large diameter ropes are manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, so as to provide exceptionally high strength-to-mass ratios. By using these ropes, the designer of the mooring system is offered a substantial saving in mass per meter which enables lighter deck weights, less requirement for lifting capacity, or simply a stronger mooring system.

Jupiter Gulf Star ropes are manufactured from wire produced on specially adapted wire drawing machines, which impart the necessary metallurgical properties to the wire, to ensure the strength of the rope remains constant with time (assuming no environmental 

degradation). So the next time you design a mooring system, consult Scaw about our Jupiter Gulf Star range.

Quality Assurance For Steel Wire Ropes 

In 1984, Scaw’s operation became the third factory in South Africa to be listed by the South African Bureau of Standard as having a quality management system which complied with SAB 0157 Part 1, which has since evolved into SABS ISO: 1994 – Model for Quality Assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing. In addition, the company has been approved by the American Petroleum Institute, Lloyds of London and Germanischer Lloyd. Testing facilities are internationally endorsed, and products are British Standards, Federal, DIN and other specifications.

Customer Support

Scaw provides a full range of customer support services. A team of qualified engineers with extensive experience in all aspects of wire ropes are available to advise on the selection, handling, installation and maintenance of wire ropes as well as provide on-site inspection of wire ropes and equipment.

Manufacturing Resources 

Scaw’s facilities and resources provide the means  and expertise to produce technically advanced wire  ropes to the world’s leading mines and other users of the product. In addition to operating a modern and well equipped factory, the entire rope making process from receipt of the hot rolled rod, through the various manufacturing processes, to final inspection and testing, is on a single site and under one management.
