Lubrication of wire ropes, chains and cables is necessary to increase their operational effectiveness. Cranes, elevators, drilling rigs are just some of the areas where wire ropes and cables are extensively used.
As they are subjected to very harsh environments they need special greases to increase their life and reduce safety hazards.
A lithium and mineral oil based grease designed with good penetrative properties to lubricate the hemp or steel core of the wire rope is particularly suitable.
The greases are available in different consistencies to cater to wider operating parameters.
