Clarification Rq for linear density

  • #1

Summary:

I am trying to choose Elevator wire, chart shows max load reading in KG/m. Does it mean if length increases weight will increases as well ?
Example;
If max load of wire is 0.492kg/m.
And i am using 2 meter does it mean capacity of wire would be 0.984 kg/m.

Main Question or Discussion Point

If max load of wire is 0.492kg/m.
Are you sure this isn't the mass of the wire?

If max load is 0.492 kg/m, capacity of a 2m wire would be 0.984 kg. Not kg/m.

Thread closed temporarily for Moderation.

@hassannnnnnnnnn -- The word "elevator" has several possible meanings, including some applications that affect life safety. Please send me a private message (PM -- click on my avatar and "Start a conversation") to let me know exactly what your application is. If it is a simple lift for transferring food between floors or something, we may be able to allow that discussion. Thank you.

I don't believe you are reading the chart correctly. If you are asking about 11 mm wire rope, the weight of the wire rope is 49.2 Kg per 100 m, or .492 Kg/m. The carrying capacity is completely different.

No message to me from the OP, so the thread will stay closed for safety reasons.
