New Sling Features
We are all looking for money saving ideas when it comes to running our businesses. From a service standpoint, wire rope maintenance is one way that every marina or boatyard can find long-term maintenance savings. The wire ropes on your mobile boat hoist make up a critical and expensive component of the overall safety and performance of your lift. Replacement of wire ropes is inevitable on any piece of equipment, but the frequency of such a service is completely in your control. To help explain how to extend the life of these important items, it is first important to know their basics.
The wire ropes on your machine have three basic components:
The core is a smaller rope, which is similar in looks to the outer strands. Each wire rope is made this way to provide maximum lifting strength and to help prevent crushing damage to the outer strands.
Do any of the following conditions exist on your Wire Rope?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, it’s time to purchase a new wire rope for your Marine Travelift Boat Hoist.
Wire Rope Lubricant
Martin Walter Company's wire rope lubricant is designed primarily for hoist ropes and working ropes in the marine environment. It provides excellent lubricity and corrosion protection while minimizing sling-off. It has a tackifier to assure adhesion to the wire rope, even in wet and high-speed operations. It is made with extreme pressure and anti-wear additives for heavy-duty work and contains no solvents and will not dry, harden or evaporate. It protects against corrosion and resists water washout, acids, dirt, salt, steam, chlorine, H2S, and CO2. It is manufactured to work in temperatures from -60F to 380◦F and is essentially non-conductive, non-flammable, non-toxic, and biodegradable.
Sold in 5-gallon containers. Contact Martin Walter today for pricing. Protect your wire rope investment. Marine Travelift recommends lubricating your wire rope monthly to lubricate and prevent corrosion.
