Double Reeved Hoist

I'm studying to write my millwright exam, and in the rigging section, the term "double reeved hoist " came up. I'm guessing it's like a pulley block with multiple sheaves, that multiplies lifting capability, but i'm not sure. A pic would help, if possible.

thanks,
kitkar

I can't help you on that one. I took the same program, and never heard of it. I'd like to know also. What college has that program in your area? Good luck on the exam.

Reeve: To pass the end of a rope through any lead such as a sheave or fairlead.

A double reeve is when you pass the wire or rope twice around the drum to increase traction power such as they do in sailing practice or hoist construction.

Knowing the context of how the term is used is important, can you quote the reference?

Thanks Chuck, you're a lifesaver. I love ya, buddy.

It's a True/False Question the advantage of double reeving over single reeving is that it permits the use of smaller diameter rope, sheaves, and drum. apparently the answer is true
