Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication Systems are excellent for Wire Rope & Cable Lubrication/Cleaning. In only one application, wire rope can have its surface and groove pattern scraped clean of product build-up and grit while at the same time, new lubricant is uniformly applied to the newly-cleaned wire rope surface. Coating product then fills any open spaces within the groove pattern and internal strands open to receive it. This is accomplished as the wire rope passes through a controlled, 100% pressurized, immersion within the internal Seal Lubrication Chamber. Surface moisture trapped within the internal strands is displaced and replaced with the newly applied wire rope coating product. Kirkpatrick Systems are functional with both low and high viscosity coatings. They can be incorporated as a Grease Applicator for tough working environments where higher viscosity coatings are required to fight friction wear due to strand rubbing, as well as a low viscosity oiling system required for certain Cable Cleaning & Lubrication applications.
An optional Manual Stripper is available to be used as a rotational base for specially designed Helix Wire Rope Groove Cleaners (Not to be confused with another source’s groove cleaner). This option allows users the capability to surface clean the wire rope separate from the lubrication process. Once cleaned, an unhindered visual inspection can then be performed to determine the condition of the wire rope prior to servicing or in between service dates. This process is much more effective than the use of a labor-intensive cable brush cleaner that incorporates individual wires that easily gum up and require frequent cleaning.

Dynagard Blue is an extreme pressure, unleaded environmental wire rope lubricant. Blended for excellent resistance to softening under severe working conditions, water resistance, and it’s compatibility with all Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication Systems, in addition to manual hand application. Its slickness and viscosity allow it to stay alive with the wire rope as the strands move during load-bearing operations. This attribute also allows it to continuously redistribute itself to cover any internal strand areas that may have been missed during the initial lubrication process. An unleaded extreme pressure additive provides exceptional protection against wear and shock loads, while additional additives enhance resistance to water wash-off, protection against fling off at high wire rope travel speeds, and long service in extreme and high temperature environments. Dynagard Blue has outstanding structural and chemical stability. It won’t corrode steel and copper bearing alloys and is compatible with conventional seal materials. Aquatic toxicity tests on sensitive marine organisms performed by independent test laboratories have shown it to rate over 25,000 PPM (parts per million) making it possibly the best LC-50 value of any wire rope lubricant available. A copy of the test data is available upon request. Dynagard Blue Product Page

Dynagard “E” is a revolutionary non-toxic, 97% biodegradable, wire rope lubricant that meets the performance levels of petroleum-based greases in areas of fluid film and corrosion protection of wire rope strands. Exceptional for manual application. Dynagard “E” also meets the operational requirements for all Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication System Models providing optimum coating and penetration, prolonging the working life of wire rope, while at the same time meeting the environmental concerns of our customers. Dynagard “E” was the first seed oil based high viscosity grease introduced onto the world market in 1993. It also was the benchmark product used in 2002 to establish MILPRF- 18458C Type II requirements under the “Environmentally Preferable Lubricants” program (NSWCCD, Code 632). Documentation is available upon request. Dynagard E Product Page

Dynagard LVL is a highly tenacious adhesive wire rope dressing formulated for use in both Marine and Mining applications where a quickly penetrating product is required with the low fling-off adhesive attributes of a much higher viscosity coating. This is especially important at high wire rope travel speeds where fling-off is more apt to occur after the initial application of product. Dynagard LVL penetrates the outer strands of wire rope and cable and is excellent in displacing moisture when used with the Kirkpatrick JUL Internal Spray Systems. This product is also excellent for Mine Friction Hoist applications where slippage is a safety concern.
As the carrier solvent evaporates, a thin flexible film of lubricant is formed. This fluid film barrier prevents the incursion of moisture or dirt between the strands, and contains rust and corrosion inhibitors to prevent abrasive and corrosive wear. The fluid film barrier of the Dynagard LVL also protects against the formation of rust and prevents “rust binding”, which reduces cable flexibility and life; increasing friction wear between the wire strands. The barrier also offers protection against corrosion, preventing pitting of wire strands that can cause fatigue failure. Dynagard LVL maintains optimal performance in both dry and high-humidity and salt water environments. Dynagard LVL Product Page
