A talurit swaged sleeve is used in a mechanical splicing system, to make an eye splice in a steel wire rope. The most common and useful type of end fitting for a wire rope is to turn the end back to form a loop. A thimble can be installed inside the loop to preserve the natural shape of the loop and protect the cable from pinching and abrading on the inside of the loop. The loose end is then fixed back on the wire rope by means of a swaged sleeve (ferrule). The thimble prevents disrupting of the wires.
- The original T-ferrule design is the seamless aluminium ferrule, intended for galvanized or bright wire ropes. It corresponds to European standard, EN 13411-3. From size 8 and upwards fully traceable (ISO 9001) and marked with size, type and manufacturing batch number.
- The UM-ferrule (Ultagrip Metal) is a cylindrical ferrule, smaller in diameter after pressing than the T-ferrule.
- The seamless ferrule made from carbon steel is aimed for bright and galvanized steel wire ropes. Using the same metals between rope and ferrule prevents electrolytic corrosion. They are intended for applications with high temperatures and/or abrasion, e.g. the steel melting and fishing industries. From size 8 and upwards they are fully traceable (ISO 9001) and marked with size and type.
- The round R-ferrule is intended to be pressed on single wire ropes, e.g. on preventer wires or used as end stop.
The Talurit company was established in 1948, a trade mark in many countries is Utragrip. The parent company is based in Gothenburg, Sweden with subsidiaries near Singen in Germany and in Barnsley, United Kingdom. The ferrules are sold throughout the world and the company has representations in most industrialized countries.
