Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection

Marine Automatic lubrication systems for marine and maritime environments need to be incredibly durable for an industry which often experiences extreme environments. Our lubricators can be used in a huge range of marine applications, from the ship building process right through to offshore maintenance, shipping, and port maintenance. Not only are our maritime lubrication solutions waterproof, they are salt and corrosion resistant, and able to withstand the harsh onslaught of marine applications.

Lubrication Technologies, Inc. (LTI), understands that safety and effeciency are key when it comes to the marine industry. The operation crew needs to maximize productivity, reduce maintenance costs and provide a safe working environment for the crew while at sea.

Prevention Keeps Marine Equipment Running
Machinery onboard ships need lubrication of some kind for smooth and efficient running. This is achieved by using different grades and types of lubricating oils which are stored in designated lube oil tanks or in drums or receptacles. We work closely with our Marine partners to ensure their needs are met. LTI has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to installing Automatic Lubrication Systems for Marine businesses to help protect their equipment. By installing an Automatice Lubrication System on your equipment, you are reducing maintenance costs, saving on component wear, and increasing overall effeciency of the equipment.

The installation of lubricators greatly extends the service life of components by lubricating key points for engines, bearings, stern tubes, pumps, stuffing glands, port cranes, chains, winches, anchor pulleys, dock doors, swing doors, seals, electric motors, loading equipment and more!


The release of the Viper MkII provides the same excellent wire rope lubrication performance with the added benefit of a 32% lighter collar and custom built high flow grease pump. Watch the video to see the benefits of the new Viper MkII.

Viper Mid MKII Fast and effective lubrication of wire ropes with a diameter between 8mm to 67mm. The Viper Mid MKII lubricates ropes at up to 2000mt/hour.

Recommended for use with Wharf Cranes, Ship Cranes, ROV Cables, Mind Winders, Mobile Cranes, Oil & Gas Platforms, Anchor Ropes, Deck Winches, Overhead Cranes and Ship Loaders.

The Viper Wire Rope Lubricator provides grease penetration, moisture displacement and total coverage by forcing lubricant into the core of the rope.

The Viper MKII Wire Rope Lubricator range provides fast and effective cleaning and lubricating of wire ropes. Wire ropes from 8mm (5/16” ) to 165mm (6-1/2”) in diameter can be automatically greased at speeds up to 2,000mt per hour.

The Viper MKII with the new cast Aluminium collar is 32% lighter and combined with the unique inbuilt carry handles and shoulder strap enables single person wire rope lubrication. Ideal for use on all cranes, towing lines and mooring lines, the Viper MKII eliminates the HS&E risks associated with manual lubrication. Use of the Viper MKII provides improved wire rope lubrication by forcing wire rope lubricant under pressure into the wire rope.

Other lubricators just coat the surface of the ropes but the unique seal design of the Viper wire rope lubricator means the “wire dwell time” in the pressure chamber is up to 80% longer. This longer dwell time means greater lubricant penetration which leads to increased rope life and extended relubrication intervals.

Why use the Viper

  • Eliminates manual greasing
  • Single pass lubrication
  • Stops corrosion, protects ropes
  • Viper MKII - 8mm (5/16") to 67mm (2-5/8")
  • Viper Maxi MKII: 50mm (2") to 165mm (6-1/2")
  • Penetrative, displaces moisture from rope's core
  • Safer, reduced lubricant usage, less leakage & mess
  • Fast, efficient wire rope lubrication
  • Reduces downtime, improves equipment availability Custom units available

Common lubricant suffering points for the marine industry include:
Engines - Greases that are subject to heat can melt and run out of bearings. Greases that do not form a good seal can let in contaminants. LE has greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads with ease. We also offers automatic lubrication systems for making sure grease is applied in the right place at the right time in the right quantity.

Engine oil - If you are looking for longer oil life while still protecting your engine from the demands of the workload, LE can help you safely extend oil drain intervals with our superior, long-lasting engine oils and LEAP oil analysis.

Diesel fuel - Water can get into the fuel of diesel equipment kept outside, causing a loss of power. Injectors get dirty from the buildup of soot. In addition, environmental issues have led to the use of lower performance diesel fuel in on-road and off-road mobile equipment. LE has diesel fuel improvers that address these problems. They can clean up your fuel pumps, injectors and combustion chambers, thereby helping you regain fuel economy, reduce emissions and lower the overall cost per mile or hours of operation.

Wire rope - Do your wire ropes, cables and draglines become rusted, corroded or frayed? You can protect your wire rope and cable from high stress loading, shock loading, jerking and heavy loads with LE's full line of penetrating and coating wire rope lubricants. Whether you want lubricant to penetrate to the core or to coat and seal, LE has a full range of protective lubricant solutions, including wire rope lubricant applicators to reduce labor costs and ensure safe, reliable operation.

Difficulties with maritime lubrication
Although ship building involves some unique processes, component manufacturing is not dissimilar to other manufacturing industries. The difficulty in marine lubrication comes with maintenance procedures. In such a busy industry most ships don’t get much time to rest, and maintenance is done mid-voyage, with machinery operating. The equipment can be in hazardous locations and often exposed to the brutal forces of nature. Add violent rocking to the list and maintenance procedures can be hazardous.


Lubrication Management Programs Protect Your Assets and Save You Money:

Although lubricants make up a mere 3% of the typical maintenance budget; using ineffective products, techniques and applications can have a significant impact on the lubrication-related costs that make up 40% of that budget. A Lubrication Management Program designed by the Technical Consultants at Lubrication Technologies, Inc. can help you target those areas where you see red.

  • Your equipment and components will last longer, run more efficiently and more reliably, and you won’t replace equipment or components prematurely
  • Your labor force will spend less time on routine lubrication-related maintenance and no time on lubricant-related equipment failures
  • You’ll reduce over-all lubricant consumption as well as waste
Reliability Centered Maintenance, (see steps below), is the approach endorsed by Maintenance Professionals across industries. We practice RCM to support the protection of assets at the lowest life-cycle cost. Our World Class Lubrication Reliability Program incorporates best practices and produces optimum results.
