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, 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 and groove pattern. Pressurized 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 with a a low viscosity oiling system required for certain Cable Cleaning & Lubrication applications.
Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication Systems come in three basic configurations:
- Standard System: Accommodates wire rope diameters of 1/4″ (5mm-6mm) to 1-7/8″ (48mm)
- Jumbo System: Accommodates wire rope diameters of 3/8″ (9mm-10mm) to 4-3/8″ (110mm)
- Jumbo Internal Spray System: (Designed for the application of low viscosity, “oils” as well as high viscosity “low flow” coatings)
JUL Systems accommodate wire rope diameters through 2-1/4” (57mm/58mm). (Low viscosities) and up to 4 3/8″
Kirkpatrick Manual Strippers – Wire Rope Groove Cleaners
An optional Manual Stripper is available to be used as a rotational base for specially designed Helix Wire Rope Groove Cleaners. 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.
