AmSteel®-Blue


AmSteel-Blue is a proven cost-saving replacement for wire rope in key applications where strength, weight, and safety are important. It is recognized worldwide as the standard for single-braid HMPE ropes. By comparison, Amsteel-Blue is only 1/7th the weight of wire and, size for size, the same strength. The reduced weight, high strength, and low stretch make it ideal for tug assist/maneuvering lines. This all adds up to longer service life and reduced costs throughout your operation.AmSteel-Blue is a torque-free, 12-strand single-braid design, with Samson proprietary Samthane coating, which results in cost-saving benefits that can be measured in areas such as fewer crew for most operations, improved crew safety and time; Amsteel-Blue results in more efficient connections and controlled responses. In addition, it easily spliced and inspected. AmSteel-Blue is recommended for split-drum winch applications, but not for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats if surging or rendering the rope is required.

Details:

Proton-8


Proton-8 uses Dyneema SK-75 for high strength and low weight with a polyester overlay, which provides the heat resistance and grip necessary for use on bitts and capstans. Its firm, flexible, torque-free construction performs well on both single and split-drum winches.

Compared to all polyester or polyester/polypropylene combination ropes, Proton-8 is more than twice as strong but weighs less size for size. It provides a substantial service life, is almost neutrally buoyant, and has low water absorption for easy, fast handling during deployment and retrieval. The yellow Samthane coating insures maximum wear resistance and service life while making Proton-8 highly visible.

This unique working line with Dyneema is a proven lightweight solution to the problem of large, heavy ropes that are difficult to manage, and reduces the opportunity for crew injury.

Proton-8 is designed for use on H-bitts and capstans for surging and rendering.

Features:

  • High grip and heat resistance
  • High strength-to-weight ratio with low water absorption for lightweight handling
  • Flexible, torque-free 8-strand with a firm cross-section
  • Easy to field splice

Quantum-8


Quantum-8 was developed to meet customer requests for a lightweight, high strength, torque-free rope that can float and grip a winch or capstan. Lighter and stronger than Proton®-8, Quantum-8 is a unique upgrade. This patented construction utilizes Samson’s exclusive, patented DPX® fiber technology. Quantum-8 has comparable grip to Proton®-8 but unlike Proton®-8 — it floats. Samson’s proven DPX® fiber technology has the best abrasion and cut resistance of all high performance fibers, so rope durability is excellent. Quantum-8 has multiple marine uses as: floating tug stern lines, typhoon or vessel mooring lines, offshore messenger or pick-up lines. Quantum-8 has an orange urethane coating for high visibility as well as additional abrasion resistance.

Features:

  • A blend of polyester and Dyneema® SK-75
  • Good grip on capstans and H-bitts
  • Floats
  • Better abrasion resistance than Proton®-8
  • Excellent single drum spooling capabilities

Saturn-12


Saturn-12 represents the next generation in Samson’s 12-strand working lines made with Dyneema® fiber. Saturn-12 has an enhanced coating that improves abrasion resistance and increases residual strength as much as 15–20% when compared with other HMPE lines and their conventional coatings. Saturn-12’s light weight, high strength, and low stretch makes it ideal for quick, efficient connections and controlled response. Saturn-12 has been tested in extreme conditions and is proven to provide a longer service life while reducing costs when compared with standard HMPE ropes available today. A complement to other Samson working lines like AmSteel®-Blue and Quantum-12, Saturn-12 is recommended for tug working lines on drums and as a pendant in ship-assist work. It is not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats due to its very low coefficient of friction.

Description:
This rope is the ultimate lockline virtually eliminates slipstick when checking barges. The 3-strand rope construction is a high-strength, lightweight, smooth and controllable checking line that has twice the wear life of standard lockline ropes.
Details:

SSR-301R


This rope is the ultimate lockline virtually eliminates slipstick when checking barges. The 3-strand rope construction is a high-strength, lightweight, smooth and controllable checking line that has twice the wear life of standard lockline ropes. This is accomplished by Samson’s unique fiber and internal Resistex lubricant. The core fiber of each strand is 35% stronger than standard polypropylene fiber. The core fiber of each strand then has our internally produced outer cover of high-tenacity filament polyester blended with spun polyester. The outer polyester cover provides excellent wear and heat resistance. The Resistex lubricant constantly lubricates the outer surface fibers when working loads are applied. This constant migration of Resistex to the surface yarns maximizes rope life, allows consistent checking ability, and minimizes heat build-up during checking.

Features:

  • Most cost-effective lockline available
  • Gives long-term, smooth, consistent checking
  • Low-working elongation for control
  • Excellent flex and wear resistance

Details:

Turbo-75


Turbo-75, made with Dyneema®, has the relative firmness and low stretch of wire, but, size for size, it is only 1/6th the weight. For tough winch rope applications where the weight and inflexibility of wire rope is a problem, Turbo-75 is ideal. It spools on winches very well, does not rust or “fish hook” like wire rope––and it floats!

Both cover and core are coated with a proprietary Samthane coating. Turbo-75’s superior fiber, design, and construction all create a rope that can have a service life two to three times that of wire rope.

A standard cover repair kit is available and easy to apply in the field. This product design requires a specialized splicing technique that does not facilitate splicing in the field.

Features:

  • Excellent single drum spooling capabilities
  • Lightweight handling
  • Superior drum compression resistance
  • Retains hard round shape during use
  • Protective cover with Dyneema

DC Moor-Gard

In an effort to provide mooring systems with the ultimate protection from chafe and abrasion, Samson has made one of its best products even better. DC Moor-Gard has been redesigned with a new braiding pattern modeled after our very robust Turbo series covers for jacketed ropes. The braid pattern has been optimized for use as a separate chafe protection cover. And, of course, it is made from 100% Dyneema® fiber for enhanced performance.

Patent pending, reverse twisted, Turbo construction aligns the internal fibers with the axis of the rope to reduce friction between the rope and the chafe guard. Saturn coating enhances the abrasion resistance and also helps reduce internal and external friction. This has been proven to lead to lower operating temperatures and longer mooring life.

Features:

  • Fixed or adjustable for easy positioning
  • Lightweight
  • Flexible
  • Floats
  • Easily removed for rope inspection
