Extend Wire Rope Life & Improve Safety with Viper Wire Rope Lubricator from LE
Fast & Effective Lubrication
of Wire Ropes

The Viper Wire Rope Lubricator is a unique method of automatically lubricating wire ropes. It eliminates the slow, labor-intensive task of manual lubrication, at the same time achieving more thorough results by forcing lubricant under pressure right through to the wire rope core.
  • High-pressure collar delivers grease into the core, while providing thin grease film outer coating.
  • Protects rope against corrosion while providing excellent lubrication of wire strands both internally and externally.
  • Reduces labor required for application by up to 90%.
  • Provides increase in wire rope life up to 300% when used in conjunction with LE's Wirelife Almasol® Coating Grease.
