Blocks and Sheaves

General Oceanics blocks are designed to make your cable last.

Available sizes: .5M, 1M, 1.5M, 2M (sheave circumference)

  • Increase Wire Rope Endurance Life
  • Reduce Weight
  • Corrosion Resistant

NYLATRON sheaves reduce crown and cable wear. Weight is one seventh (1/7) the weight of equivalent sized sheaves. NYLATRON is a high strength cast nylon containing fine particles of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a solid lubricant; the increased lubricity aids in extending cable life.
COUNTERBALANCING keeps the sheave coplanar with the cable regardless of ship roll, pitch, and yaw under trawling/towing operations.
Available configurations: Counterbalanced, fairlead (non-counterbalanced) for reduced overall weight and height. Instrumented blocks are used to provide remote reading of cable payout and rate.
