When a wire rope is in operation the individual wires rub against each other. To reduce the friction the rope is lubricated during manufacture. The lubrication improves the performance of the rope and increases its life.
Check the lubrication of the rope immediately after installation and clean the rope from inappropriate material, for example sand and dirt, periodically the rope should also be lubricated before use.
It is also important that lubrication is made in intervals of time depending on operating conditions and intensity of use.
WARNING! An unlubricated or incorrectly lubricated rope has a significantly reduced life.
Contact CERTEX for further advice and help on lubrication.
