SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND (Jan. 4, 2016) — Honeywell introduced today the Miller DuraSeal(TM) Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL), designed to provide greater reliability and safety in the harshest environments — including onshore and offshore oil and gas, mining, and petrochemical sites.
The DuraSeal SRL introduces patent-pending sealed technology that prevents contaminants from entering the mechanism — earning the design an IP69K certification, the industry’s highest sealed technology rating—and ensures that the self-retracting lifeline’s brake system, power spring and bearings are never exposed to debris, water or chemicals.
The DuraSeal SRL includes many other advanced, practical features. The braking system is designed to withstand multiple falls. The unit installs and transports easier — and quick, low-cost lifeline replacements in the field are possible. Engineered to be up to 30% lighter in weight than competitive sealed SRLs, the DuraSeal reduces user fatigue and increases productivity. With a weight capacity of 420 lbs. (180 kg), the DuraSeal provides protection for a wider range of workers who often carry heavy tools. The DuraSeal requires no annual recertification, keeping the product in the field longer while increasing the safety of workers.
