SPROCKET CHAIN CABLE REELING DRUM

Quick Overview

These types of cable reeling drums are used to avoid; tension on the cable. However, a drive mechanism is required to drive the cable reeling, which is not required in case of spring operated or motorized CRD's. These types of cable reeling drums are recommended for single layer winding of cables.

Applications:

 HORIZONTAL RECOVERY:

This arrangement can be used in two applications i.e., end and centre feed. In the end feed type, the drum is mounted on the moving machine and the reel recovers the cable laid on the ground. Here the machine travel is equal to the capacity of the reel. In the centre feed type, the machine travels on both sides of the fixed point, where a turnover anchor is installed. This arrangement provides travel equal to twice the capacity of the reel. VERTICAL

RECOVERY: 

In this type also the reel is machine mounted and the biggest advantage of this type is that it does not have to pull the weight of the cable since, in this case the complete weight of the cable is felt at the fixed point. HORIZONTAL

CATENARY:

In this type of arrangement. the cable is not laid on the ground but is suspended in the air due to the tension of the spring.

VERTICAL PULL:

  Here the reel is mounted on a fixed structure and has' to overcome the weight of the hose. The length of travel is equivalent to the capacity of the reel.
