Northern Strands Offers Railcar Progressioner Cables and Systems

Northern Strands is proud to be a premium supplier of progressioner cables. These die drawn 6 x 26  Warrington Seale Compacted Strand IWRC cables have a smooth bearing surface at the strand crown and an increase in minimum breaking strength when compared to round strand rope of the same diameter and class. Recently Northern Strands has installed a number of railcar progressioner cables and full railcar progressioner systems for grain terminals in Saskatchewan. We are capable of completing repairs on existing progressioner systems or installing a new system if needed.

Progressioner Cables can be used in a variety of applications including the following:
  • Grain Terminals
  • Railcar Progressioner System. Also called Rail Car Puller
  • Surface Mining
  • Construction
  • Logging
  • Oil Fields
  • Winch Lines
  • Car Pullers/Progressioner

These compact cables have more load bearing capacities than the standard cables with same diameters. Abrasion is less and usage lives are longer because they contact the reel surfaces in a larger area. 

The General Characteristics of Progressioner Cables includes:
  • High Strength to Diameter Ratio
  • High Resistance to Abrasion
  • High Resistance to Crushing
  • Better Fatigue Resistance
  • Equals Better Service Life
