Chant Engineering is the North American distributor of TALURIT™ ferrule products.

TALURIT’s ferrule selection is based on: the rope grade, the diameter of the wire rope, the fill factor or metallic cross-sectional area factor, the wire rope core i.e. fibre core (FC) or steel core (IWRC=independent wire rope core).Ferrules in different materials have been developed for a variety of needs and applications. Aluminum, Carbon Steel, Copper, and Stainless Steel are most common.All of TALURIT’s ferrules are produced seamless for added safety. All ferrules from size 8 and upwards are fully traceable (ISO 9001) and marked with size, type, and manufacturing batch number.

TAL-X Flemish Eye Sleeves

Chant Engineering is the North American distributor of TALURIT™ TAL-X Flemish Eye Sleeve products.

To assure the highest quality product, all TALURIT TAL-X Flemish Eye Sleeves are designed with corrosion protection and are made in accordance with the standards and processes adopted by TALURIT™ AB.

TAL-X sleeves are black oxidized and available from 1/4” to 6”. All TALURIT Flemish Eye Sleeves are marked with TAL-X, the sleeve size, and a code for traceability. Testing includes hardness, chemical analysis, microstructure evaluation, ductility, and flattening (to check for cracks). For additional conformance, sleeves are independently verified by a 3rd party test lab. You can also request instructions that will guide you on how to make Flemish Eye Terminations reach the expected efficiency level.

Imperial System – TALURIT TAL-X Flemish Eye Sleeves are recommended for use with imperial sizes 6×19 or 6×37, IPS or XIP (EIP), XXIP (EEIP), RRL, FC, or IWRC wire rope. The imperial system has also been tested and approved according to the requirements in EN 13411-3. (Not applicable on rotation resistant wire ropes)

A metric system is also available; please contact us to request the metric splicing chart. Please refer to the TALURIT System Securing Instructions for further information on matching the proper wire rope to the correct size Flemish Eye Sleeve.

T-LOC™ Kit

T-LOC™ is a reinforced aluminum termination that is a patented TALURIT product and only available from Chant. The T-LOC is a quick and easy termination for high-performance wire rope. T-LOC prevents the splitting force of a high tensile wire rope of grade 2160. T-LOC is swaged together with the aluminum ferrule. T-LOC is designed for rotation resistant wire rope of grade 2160 together with T ferrules, especially in combination with solid thimble eyes. Swaged together with the T-ferrule, T-LOC does not require an extra operation.

There is no surplus material after swaging and the unit T-LOC & T ferrule are joined without a gap. When using high tensile wire rope of grade 2160, T-LOC will secure the sling eye and prevent the aluminum ferrule from splitting apart.

Product Description

Patent pending: Application no. PCT/SE2010/000142 Reinforced aluminum termination for high performance wire rope.

General Description

T-LOC™ is produced from carbon steel and designed for rotation resistant wire rope of grade 2160 together with T ferrules, especially in combination with solid thimble eyes. The system is tested with rotation resistant wire ropes in class 35(W) x 7 and has been validated according to EN 13411-3. The tested constructions are 34(W) x K7 and 39(W) x K7-WSC, fill factor: 0.74-0.75.


When using high tensile wire rope of grade 2160, T-LOC will secure the sling eye which has a splitting force higher than normal due to the stronger rope. T-LOC is produced from carbon steel and has a better tensile strength than aluminum. T-LOC stops the aluminum ferrule splitting due to the high loading forces as the rope is pulled.

Please Note:
No new dies are necessary, T-LOC is swaged in your existing aluminum cutting dies along with the aluminum ferrule. During the swaging operation, they are joined together seamlessly. Only aluminum T ferrules may be used together with T-LOC. Due to the variety of steel wire ropes, it is difficult to approve all of them. If other wire rope constructions and fill factors are to be used, tests must be done in order to verify the strength of application. T-LOC is available for wire rope diameter range 8 to 54,6 mm. The distance from the T-LOC to the solid thimbles before swaging must be at least 2 times the nominal wire rope diameter.
