ROPE-TEK™ WRD 10 ELIMINATES WIRE ROPE COMPRESSION AND REDUCES CONSUMPTION BY 62%

Overview

Pelabuhan Tanjung Priok, in Jakarta, is one of the busiest seaports in the region handling 50% of Indonesia's trans-shipment cargo traffic. Subjected to extreme environmental stresses, the equipment at the port is maintained by PT. Jasa Peralatan Pelabuhan Indonesia ("JPPI").

JPPI approached Metalube partners looking for an alternative to a competitor product. The product in use was causing wire rope compressive diameter reduction and bleeding on port cranes.

Outcome

Metalube Rope-tek™ WRD 10 outperformed the competition with the following results after a 3-month trial application:

  • Reduced lubricant consumption by 62% over the course of 3 months
  • After a 3-month trial Rope-tek™ WRD 10 did not bleed or show any signs of water wash-off.
  • Ropetek™ WRD 10 showed considerably better corrosion protection and zero wire rope compression as compared to prior products which did result in measurable compression of the wire rope.

Rope-tek™
Range of high-performance wire rope lubricants
Rope-Tek™ WRD is a range of high-performance lubricants, specifically designed to lubricate and protect steel wire ropes. Each product is formulated from high-performance base oils and thickeners and contains an advanced additive system that minimises friction and wear and delivers outstanding corrosion protection.
The high-load carrying solids contained in Rope-Tek™ WRD products form a low-friction barrier between the metal surfaces, minimising frictional contact and wear. Due to the vastly different environments that wire ropes have to operate in, Metalube® has a comprehensive range of wire rope lubricants to provide the right product for every condition and situation.
