Type 4 Sheave

Nylon sheaves offer many advantages.

  • wear and abrasion resistance
  • chemical and corrosion resistance
  • reduced weight –  14% of the weight of steel
  • improved rope life
  • lubrication free

Nylon sheaves are utilized in many industries including:

We stock cast sheave molds in diameters from 15” to 30”. These molds can then be further machined to your dimensions for rapid delivery.

As always, bushings and bearings can be installed by us to complete your nylon sheaves.
