Lubrication of Wire Rope

Steel wire ropes are lubricated during

production. However, it is not sufficient

for long-term use. Therefore it should

be inspected during maintenance and

lubricated if necessary.

Advantages of Lubrication 

    1. Prevents wear

    2. Increases lifetime

    3. Protects against corrosion

    4. Provides better slide of wires and strands during work            

Advantages of Our Lubricant 

    • Can be applied directly.

    • Solvent-based.

    • Dries out quickly.

    • Penetrates into strands.

    • Forms a protective layer.

    • Does not spatter

    • Increases the service life of the wire.

    • Prevents oxidation/rust. 

Storing Wire Ropes 

    Wherever possible, ropes should be stored on pallets in places that are clean, dry, and protected against strong solar radiation. If ropes are stored outdoors for a short term, the plastic foil covers should be checked for condensation and the ingress of air at regular intervals.       

Recoiling and Spooling of Wire Ropes 

    Should be rolled as the figure below to prevent damages

Moving the ropes 

    Transport the rope preferably on a reel. Use suitable means for a safe transport of the reel. Coiled rope sections are best transported by means of a lifting belt. Avoid contact of the rope with hard surfaces. The ropes should not be loaded by their own weight.

     Compared to the nominal diameter of the rope around the 10% (or higher) has been a decline in the wire rope discarded regardless of fractures separated.
