Petersen Stainless to exhibit new Load Proof Shackle at OTC 2018

The Petersen Wireless Bow Load Shackle

18th April 2018

UK stainless steel shackle and wire rope manufacturers Petersen Stainless Rigging have announced plans to launch a new product in the coming weeks. The Wireless Bow Load Shackle is suitable for use in a wide range of marine and industrial weighing applications and is highly effective at measuring and monitoring loads.

The unique telemetry housing is manufactured from tough high performance polyamide resin making it strong yet light, resulting in a better balanced load shackle when compared to others available on the market.

Petersen plan to exhibit the new shackle at the Offshore Trading Conference in Houston Texas later this month. OTC 2018 is a science and energy exhibition which encourages industry professionals to collaborate scientific and technical ideas for offshore resources and environmental matters. The exhibition will be held on the 30th of April to the 3rd of May at the NRG Park in Houston.

Petersen will display the new shackle along with their standard shackle range and portable swage machine at booth number 12167. The event will be attended by the company’s Business Development Manager Aries Dijkhuizen and its new General Manager of US Operations, Vernon Hultzer. Aries and Vernon hope to use the exhibition as a chance to showcase the new shackle to new and existing customers, as well as to promote the opening of the company’s recent US subsidiary branch - Petersen Stainless Rigging & Aerospace Inc.

The Wireless Bow Load Shackle will come with a load capability of up to 13 tonnes; however different load capabilities and sizes will be available upon request. For more information on the Wireless Bow Load Shackle or OTC 2018, please contact:
