TCS-5 Series Contact Wire Straighteners: A Straight Up Solution
A marine farm contacted Specialised Force as they required a solution to help straighten the wire which oyster baskets are hung from in order to provide a stronger platform. The wire consisted of 3mm galvanised strand and a chemically bonded 8.5mm outer sheath.
Specialised Force recommended a TCS-5 Contact Wire Straightener to combat the task at hand. Also known as a Trolley Wire Straightener, the TCS-5 is a mechanical straightening device for profiled contact wires. It allows the operator to straighten common sizes of railway contact wire (Trolley Wire) from 85mm² to 161mm². The TCS-5 is generally used on railways but is not limited to such applications. The wire straightener is especially handy as it is small, lightweight and easy to use and is supplied in a lockable carry case.
The marine farm workers were very pleased with the recommendation and stated that it had been of great assistance as it allowed them to complete the task quickly and efficiently.
