Wire Rope Lubrication

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, new lubricant is uniformly applied to the newly-cleaned wire rope surface. 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 a low viscosity oiling system required for certain Cable Cleaning & Lubrication applications.


Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication Systems come in two 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 4-1/4" (108mm)
