Potential Accident on Global 1200 Drillship Diverted

Thanks to Kirkpatrick’s New Manual Stripper

Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication Systems announces the introduction of their new Manual Stripper Assembly. The new technology has been developed to support their laser produced Groove Cleaner Assemblies. Groove Cleaners are used to clean debris from the outer circumference and the Groove Pattern of customers’ wire ropes as they rotate against the Lubrication Collar Housing. A clean Groove pattern and outer circumstance optimizes penetration and coating inside the Lubrication Collar as the wire rope travels into it during the pressure application process. The introduction of the Manual Stripper component provides the added advantage of allowing cleaning apart from the pressure lubrication process for inspection purposes. Inspection capability allows the users to make informed as to whether the wire rope should be taken out of service or whether the maintenance should proceed. The Manual Stripper acts in the same fashion as the Lubrication Collar by being a rotation base for the Groove Cleaners.
