Quality Wireline and Cable Inc. re-engineered the conventional compacted swab line to eliminate the current problems associated with these style of cables. The result is the DyPak line; which eliminates metal shavings, and greatly improves torque, ovality and diameter control.

The material in the specification sheets below is galvanized improved plow steel (GIPS). Other materials such as stainless 316, S75 and S77 are available.
