Viper Mini MK II wire rope lu­bri­ca­tor now in New Zealand

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Australia’s lead­ing wire rope lu­bri­ca­tion spe­cial­ist Viper WRL Pty Ltd has of­fi­cially launched a new prod­uct: the Viper Mini MK II. Small it may be, but the Viper Mini MK II is just as pow­er­ful, fast and ef­fec­tive as other Vipers.

“De­spite its smaller size, the Viper Mini MK II has the same ca­pa­bil­ity, strength and speed as the Viper MK II,” said lu­bri­ca­tion spe­cial­ist Ge­off Man­ley, Gen­eral Manager of Lu­bri­ca­tion En­gi­neers Pty Ltd in Australia.

Like its larger pre­de­ces­sors, this prod­uct elim­i­nates the need for man­ual greas­ing with its sin­gle pass wire rope lu­bri­ca­tion, at speeds of up to 1,000 me­tres per hour.

The added ben­e­fit of the Viper Mini is its smaller size, weight and porta­bil­ity, mean­ing that it can be car­ried and in­stalled by one per­son, in­stead of two, pro­vid­ing su­pe­rior pro­tec­tion for smaller steel ropes. The Viper Mini en­sures that all ropes, of vary­ing di­am­e­ters – from 8mm to 30mm (35mm with HS Kit) – re­ceive ef­fec­tive lu­bri­ca­tion, in a safe, mess-free ap­pli­ca­tion,” says Man­ley. Fur­ther, Man­ley is con­fi­dent that the size and porta­bil­ity of the Viper Mini will make rope lu­bri­ca­tion at­trac­tive to a broader mar­ket.

“Be­cause the Viper Mini can be in­stalled by one per­son in­stead of two, it means that rope lu­bri­ca­tion is now avail­able to smaller com­pa­nies who may only have one main­te­nance staff mem­ber. Cur­rently th­ese com­pa­nies are pro­tect­ing their rope as­sets with man­ual greas­ing, or not at all.”

Man­ual greas­ing can be danger­ous to staff and it does not re­sult in max­i­mum as­set pro­tec­tion, but un­til now many com­pa­nies have not had the re­sources to im­ple­ment ef­fec­tive rope lu­bri­ca­tion. The Viper Mini changes that.
