Build-up of contamination cause accelerated wear on ropes and sheaves, whilst also acting as an abrasive on interacting surfaces. Visual inspections are also a critical part of any wire rope maintenance regime. Removal of the old lube and contaminants is important to assist in uncovering any potential issues.
To achieve optimum performance of wire rope assets it is critical that old lubricant & contamination is removed from the outer strands and valleys of the rope, prior to inspections and before re-lubrication is completed. Viper WRL has revolutionized the process of cleaning ropes by combining CAD based design with manufacturing techniques and composite materials to deliver the Viper Manual Rope Cleaner Solution Kit.
