Lubricating with the aid of brushes, rags, gloves, or by other means is costly, risky, and ineffective. The lubricant forms a film on the surface which water vapour can penetrate, thus becoming trapped. Temperature changes cause condensation and rust then begins to form from the inside. A wire rope can appear to be in good condition, when in fact corrosion and friction are destroying it from the inside. Its useful life is shortened and it becomes potentially dangerous. Even factory lubricated wire rope requires regular relubrication.
THE MASTO LUBRICATOR SOLVES THE PROBLEM
THE MASTO LUBRICATOR LUBRICATES ALL TYPES OF WIRE ROPE INSIDE AND OUT
Only the Masto Lubricator penetrates under high pressure all types of wire rope, such as Non-rotating, Dyform, and Locked Coil with heavy grade lubricant. NB. To obtain total penetration through a compact rope the pressure must be minimum 20 bar (285 PSI) in the chamber. Even wire rope subjected to severe surface wear will have a longer life when lubricated with the Masto. Stainless steel, galvanized, and other special types of wire rope require just as much lubrication since friction is the same and corrosion can also occur.
EASY INSTALLATION REGARDLESS OF WIRE-ROPE POSITION
The Masto Lubricator is easy to use. Split seals are fitted around the rope and clamped in place by the two halves of the lubricating chamber.
The unit is coupled to a high-pressure lubricating pump via flexible hose, and lubricant is forced into the lube chamber.
The unit is anchored by two chains to a convenient, stationary object. The pump is started and the wire rope is pulled through the Lubricator.
SWEPCO 150 Superior Wire Rope Grease & MASTO Lubricator
If you start using the MASTO Lubricator, the best results are obtained with the highest quality Wire Rope Grease. If you use SWEPCO 150 Wire Rope Grease your wire ropes will be protected in an optimum way.
An impressive load wear index of greater than 75 and 4-ball weld load of 800 kg demonstrate the superiority of SWEPCO 150’s industry leading extreme pressure and anti-wear protection. The result is significantly longer service life for wire rope and wire rope system components.
