Markey Adbandonment & Recovery Winch DEPS-76AR
The DEPS-76AR is designed with a 34:1 D:d ratio at the barrel layer which is significantly larger than competing designs. The larger D:d ratio reduces stress on the wire and enables the winch to spool 3,300m of 121mm wire rope in eight layers. By spooling in only eight layers, the winch is capable of 450Tm of line pull on all layers over the weight of the cable. In addition, the single-drum design reduces the frequency of bending fatigue cycles as compared to traction winches. A computer con- trolled fairlead ensures that wire is strategically spooled to minimize wire abrasion. The DEPS-76AR reduces wire wear and fits in a more compact footprint than competing designs.
