**D=tread diameter of sheave
d= nominal diameter of rope
To find any tread diameter from this table, the diameter for the rope construction to be used is multiplied by its nominal diameter (d). For example, the minimum sheave tread diameter for a 1/2" 6 x 21 FW rope would be 1/2" (nominal diameter) x 30 (minimum ratio) or 15".

NOTE: These values are for reasonable service. Other values are permitted by various standards such as ANSI, API, PCSA, HMI, CMAA, etc. Smaller values affect rope life.
