Viper wire rope lubricator for Ship Lifters
Viper WRL have designed a system to greatly increase the safety of operators and improve the overall effectiveness of the lubrication process.
The ship lifter will have multiple wire ropes connecting the support platform to each of the winch drums. As the ropes are partially operating in salt water, it is important that they are effectively lubricated to provide the protection needed.
Traditionally completed by hand, the manual lubrication process can take several hundred man hours to complete, limiting operation of the lifter and is also not nearly as effective as using a modern, pressure lubricator system.
SUPERIOR PROTECTION OF WIRE ROPES - 6mm to 44mm
The Viper Mini MK3 provides a light weight, easy to use option for smaller or hard to access wire ropes. It cleans and lubricates wire ropes quickly, efficiently and safely. Suitable for wire ropes with a diameter between 6mm to 44mm, the Viper Wire Rope Mini MK3 System lubricates ropes at up to 2000mt/hour.The Viper Wire Rope Lubricator provides grease penetration, moisture displacement and total coverage by forcing lubricant into the core of the rope.
Why Choose the Viper Mini MK3 Wire Rope Lubricator for your Ship Lifter lubrication
What this means for you
- Minimises OH&S issues when working at heights
- Due to light weight you get more even coating on small diameter multistrand compact ropes
- Single Person Operation
- Ease to mount on ropes
- Fits between ropes on a compound pulley winch application
- Cost effective preventative maintenance solution for smaller rope assets
2.9Kg High Pressure Pump
- High Speed lubrication of wire ropes due to high volume pump
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 Mini KIT INCLUSIONS
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 MK3 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 MK3 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
