The Benefits of Using Australian-Made Viper WRL Wire Rope Lubrication Systems

The Viper Wire Rope Lubricator is a lightweight, automated system designed to enable lubricant to be compressed into the rope, ensuring total coverage. The heart of the system is the specially designed seals, which provide durability in harsh environments while ejecting moisture and water through the re-lubrication process, maximising corrosion resistance, and extending the lifespan of equipment and wire rope assets.

A safer, faster, more efficient, and environmentally responsible solution, the Viper WRL is made from the highest quality material to ensure durability and the best performance.

Let’s explore why you should consider an Australian-made Viper WRL.

What are the Viper Wire Rope Lubricator Range of Lubricants?

Viper has a range of lubricants that have been tried and tested with the Viper WRL range.

VPG-0 Penetrating Lubricant – designed to coat wire rope with a thin lubricant film and penetrate the core.

VCG-1 Coating Lubricant – designed to withstand water washout and protect against corrosion, penetrate, and provide extreme pressure protection.

ERG Eco Rope Guardian Lubricant – is a certified Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL), recommended for use in applications on or near waterways.

What are the benefits of use?

Lubricating your wire ropes is essential to maintaining your equipment’s functionality, reliability, and effectiveness and reducing downtime. Regular lubricant usage will reduce friction between rope strands, thereby increasing its lifespan by 300%, improving safety and creating a shield against corrosion. Viper WRL is suitable for a range of conditions, including extreme temperatures. 

Traditionally, grease is applied to the rope by hand, brush, or spray, which is a messy, time-consuming practice that may not even effectively lubricate the rope. A Viper WRL automated system eliminates leakage and wasted grease and gets the job done in a fraction of the time. Best of all, it gets into the core of the rope, therefore ensuring complete lubrication.
