safe working load
safe load limit (maximum permissible load) of the fittings used for mooring and towing
Depending on the construction, roller fairleads shall be classified as belonging to one of the following two types:
a) 2-roller type;
b) 3-roller type.
4.2 Nominal sizes
The nominal sizes, D n , of roller fairleads are denoted by reference to the outside diameter of the roller, in millimetres, from a basic series of preferred numbers.
The nominal sizes are: 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450 and 500.
Roller fairleads shall have dimensions and particulars in accordance with Tables 1 and 2, and
Figures 1 and 2.
The following material shall be used for manufacturing the roller fairleads:
— seat: weldable steel plates having a yield point of not less than 235 N/mm 2 .
7 Manufacturing and inspection
7.1 All surfaces of the roller fairleads, including welded surfaces, shall be free from any visible flaws or imperfections.
7.2 All surfaces in contact with the ropes shall be free from surface roughness or irregularities likely to cause damage to the ropes by abrasion.
7.3 The roller fairleads shall be coated externally with an anti-corrosion protective finish.
8.1 The safe working load (SWL) for the intended use of the roller fairleads shall be noted in the towing and mooring plan available on board for the guidance of the shipmaster as specified in IMO circular MSC/ Circ.1175.
8.2 The actual SWL on board shall be determined by considering the under deck reinforcement, and it shall be marked on the towing and mooring plan. The actual SWL shall not be over the SWL indicated in this document.
8.3 The shipside roller fairleads shall be clearly marked with its SWL by weld bead or equivalent. The SWL shall be expressed in tonnes (symbol ‘t’) and be placed so that it is not obscured during operation of the fitting.BS ISO 13767 pdf download.
