SIST EN 13411-3:2004
EN 13411-3:2004 (E)
5.1.2 Type testing
5.1.2.1 Sampling

Where the ferrule design follows a mathematical progression throughout a given size range, rope diameter shall be

selected for testing to represent the lower and upper quartiles of that range.

Where the ferrule design does not follow a mathematical progression throughout a given size range, each rope

diameter within that range for which the system is designed shall be selected for testing.

For each rope diameter selected as above, the rope grade shall be the highest for which the system is designed

and at least three FSETs or three ferrule secured endless loops, whichever is the case, shall be tested.

NOTE 1 In the case of the FSET the number of tests is regarded as two when the test lengths have a FSET at both ends.

Additionally, sampling shall take into account whether the type of ferrule-secured termination is a turn-back eye or

Flemish eye or whether it is an endless loop, as follows:
a) Turn-back eye ferrule secured-termination

Testing shall be carried out on each of the basic rope types for which the system is designed. For each basic

rope type, testing shall be carried out on ropes having the lowest and highest metallic cross-sectional area

factors for which the system is designed.

NOTE 2 For the purposes of this standard there are four basic rope types, namely single layer rope, rotation-resistant rope,

parallel-closed rope and spiral strand rope, refer EN 12385-2 for definitions.
b) Flemish-eye ferrule-secured termination

Testing shall be carried out on single layer rope having the lowest and highest metallic cross-sectional area

factors for which the system is designed.
c) Ferule-secured endless loop

Testing shall be carried out on single layer rope having the lowest and highest metallic cross-sectional factor for

which the system is designed
5.1.2.2 Tensile test

When tested in accordance with 6.2 the FSET shall sustain a force of at least 90% of the minimum breaking force

of the rope.

NOTE A terminal efficiency of 90% is equivalent to a termination efficiency factor, K , of 0,9 which is used in the calculation

of WLL for slings

When tested in accordance with 6.2 the ferrule-secured endless loop shall sustain a force of at least 90% of twice

the minimum breaking force of the rope.
5.1.2.3 Fatigue test

When tested in accordance with 6.3 for 75 000 cycles followed by a tensile test in accordance with 6.2 the FSET

and endless loop shall sustain a force of at least 80% of the minimum breaking force of the rope.

Additionally for Flemish eye ferrule-secured terminations of crane hoist ropes a further fatigue test shall be

performed on an assembly comprising a solid thimble having a peripheral length equivalent to at least four rope lay

lengths. When tested in accordance with 6.4 the ferrule-secured termination shall withstand a minimum of 1x10

cycles and not exhibit a complete strand fracture.

h) dimensional requirements of the pressed ferrule;
i) marking limitations of the ferrule; and
j) temperature limits of the ferrule secured system.
5.2 Ferrules
5.2.1 Material

The material selected by the ferrule manufacturer shall be non-alloy carbon steel or aluminium and shall conform to

the same specification as that used by the ferrule-secured system designer when satisfying the type tests.

Non-alloy carbon steel shall be a fully-killed non-ageing normalized steel.
Aluminium shall be in condition F according to EN 515.
5.2.2 Dimensions

The dimensions of the ferrule shall be in accordance with those used by the ferrule-secured system designer when

satisfying the type tests.
5.2.3 Manufacture and quality control of ferrule

The tube from which ferrules are made shall be free from any cracks, folds and surface defects.

With the exception of steel ferrules for Flemish eyes, ferrules shall be produced to provide a seam-free hollow

product. Extrusion over mandrels with a bridge shall not be used. Electric resistance welding of steel tubes may

only take place for flemish eyes and shall be carried out prior to the tube drawing and normalizing processes.

For each batch of steel ferrules produced from the same cast of steel and heat treatment a sample ferrule shall be

selected and close flattened at ambient temperature, see figure 1. If the sample fails this test a further ten (10) or

3% of the batch of ferrules, whichever is the greater, shall be randomly selected, and all shall pass the flattening

test otherwise the whole batch shall be rejected.
