Non-destructive testing is an important means for assessment of the performance of haulage ropes in a mono-cable detachable grip ropeway installation. The visual method produces the possibility of an inadequate inspection due to its subjectivity. Wire ropes wear out eventually, gradually losing work capability throughout their useful life, making periodic inspections, lubrication and tensioning necessary. Magnetic flaw detectors, which measure loss of metallic area (LMA) and detect local faults (LF) such as broken wires and other faults in the ropes, are used to determine rope wear. An attempt has been made in this paper to evaluate the performance of one haulage rope in a mono-cable detachable (automatic) grip ropeway installation in India using two non-destructive testing instruments.
