Nylon MD Pulleys & Sheaves
Custom machined Nylon MD and Nylatron GSM pulleys and sheaves from
B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply.
Nylon MD s a molybdenum disulfide filled nylon for advanced lubrication.
Nylon-MD is hard, strong and withstands temperature up to 220°F (104.4°C) as
well as providing excellent chemical resistance.
There are numerous advantages of a B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply custom machined
MD Nylon sheaves & pulleys over conventional steel or iron pulleys
MD Nylon sheaves & pulleys are 1/8th the weight of steel or iron sheaves. This improves the lifting capabilities of mobile and fixed boom cranes. Lighter weigh makes ease of installation a snap.
Longer Rope Life
MD Nylon Sheaves & pulleys are better suited to the “on again, off again” loading typical for this application. With enhanced material memory and resiliency, the rope grooves will flex under the load of the rope providing increased support to the rope.
The arm weight of telescoping cranes is decreased because B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply Nylon MD sheaves & pulleys are lighter. B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply MD Nylon sheaves & pulleys flex under the load of the rope increasing the contact area between the rope and groove which increases load capacity.
Reduced Operating Costs
Nylon MD reduces the need for regular lubrication sometimes it can be reduced or omitted.
Nylon MD sheaves & pulleys will not rust or corrode.
