Viper wire rope lubricator for Mooring Ropes

A safe, simple and effective lubrication solution for mooring ropes. 

iMooring ropes are submersed in water and suffer from excessive contamination build up due to being dragged over the seabed while being spooled in. This salt encrusted mud causes premature corrosion and pitting throughout the structure of the rope, potentially risking a rope fracture while in use. This would have catastrophic consequences while Vessels are being pumped and could cause environmental oil spills.

 Traditionally completed by hand, the manual lubrication process can take several hundred man hours to complete and is also not nearly as effective as using a modern, pressure lubricator system such as the Viper WRL.

Benefits of using the Viper WRL for mooring ropes

  • The easy to use Viper WRL systems require no special skills and no tools to operate
  • Single person operation with light weight robust design
  • Minimises OH&S issues as operators have no direct contact with the lubricant
  • Cleans all outer contamination from mooring ropes and lubricates ropes in one pass at a speed of
    up to 2000m/hour, dramatically reducing downtime
  • Effective lubrication of mooring ropes = Reduced risk of rope failures.
  • The Viper WRL system is cleaner to operate and all excess lubricant is captured and may be
    re-used so no wastage occurs.

Health Safety Environment

The Viper WRL was developed with safety and the environment in mind. When used correctly the Viper WRL has a number of Health, Safety and Environment benefits.

  • Every gram of grease goes on the rope  – no contamination
  • Does not leak meaning no mess
  • No wasted lubricant
  • Light weight allows for safe application
  • There is no personal contact with the lubricant
  • The rope is able to be lubricated from a safe distance

Viper Seals

The Viper Polyurethane Seal is the heart of Viper WRL Systems and effective lubrication. Its unique seal design and carefully tested polyurethane-blend material allows the lubricant to effectively penetrate into the core of wire ropes, where corrosion is most critical and often undetected. 

Viper MK Series Seals have also been field-tested and improved to be extremely durable and wear resistant, while retaining its flexibility to achieve best “grease massaging” effects into wire rope core. The Viper MK Series Seals can last up to 12,000 – 15,000m of rope lubrication.

It is recommended that wire ropes be physically measured prior to ordering seals as ropes in service can stretch and sizes may vary
