Seals

The Viper seal design and carefully tested polyurethane-blend material allow the lubricant to effectively penetrate into the core of wire ropes, where corrosion is most critical and often undetected. Viper MKII Seals have been field-tested and proven to be extremely durable and wear-resistant, all while retaining their flexibility to achieve best “grease massaging” effects into wire rope cores. Viper MKII Seals can last for to 12,000–15,000m of rope lubrication.

What makes the Viper Seal so special?

Feature

Benefit

Material
  • The Viper seal is made from polyurethane with high abrasion resistance properties, meaning it is resistant to wear. This enables the seal to be used to lubricant thousands of meters of rope without being replaced

Seal Design/Rib Depth

  • The material and internal design of the seal allow for the seal to mold to the shape of the rope. This creates a pumping action, massaging lubricant into the rope.
  • The seal molds to the rope, which means there is constant contact with the wire rope which enables consistent lubrication.

Length of Seal

  • Increased dwell time between the rope and the seal allows for increased opportunity for the lubricant to be massaged into the rope structure.
