The most effective way in which non-destructive evaluation of rope is currently used is as a means of improving the reliability of the initial identification of the location of significant degradation along a rope. Magnetic flaw detectors are used to determine rope wearing. The detectors can measure loss of metallic area (LMA) and detect the local faults (LF) like broken wires and other faults of the rope. Deterioration of a rope during its lifetime leads to a reduction of the rope safety and to its possible destruction. Magnetic non-destructive testing allows an increase in the safe and use of steel ropes due to objective, reliable and documented evaluation of the real rope condition and by ensuring timely rope replacement.
