EAL / VGP Lubricating Greases for Mooring Wire Ropes

Katradis Company recommends usage of certified EAL / VGP Lubricating Greases for the mooring wire ropes.

Minimum specifications of EAL / VGP Grease:

  • Good resistance to the washing off action of rain & seawater (ASTM D1264) and excellent adhesion to surfaces with low propensity for fling-off
  • Wide working temperature range: -25°C up to +140°C
  • Resistant to oxidation (ASTM D942)

For a longer & safer service lifetime of the rope, the proper greasing must be effected with Pressure Lubricator for the following reasons:

  • Cleans the ropes from old grease & grit/dirt residues so that the new grease penetrates in a clean rope
  • Fast and efficient application of the grease – reduces lubrication time vs. manual lubrication
  • Enables lubricant to adhere to each wire and penetrate to the core for long-lasting protection
  • Increases operator safety
  • Optimizes grease quantity used and reduces waste and contamination
