Read our primer articles on Grease Guns and Oil Sight Glasses.

We have an application on a cableway where we need to grease rigging blocks that are 300' off the ground and approximately 40' from the face of a vertical tower. See attachment. The towers luff or tilt 30' side to side. Consequently any grease piping that we may run from the towers must flex to accomodate this. Ideas??

You could put a series progressive divider valve on the tower and run grease lines to the points on the rigging blocks. I am assuming there are only 1 point per rigging block? This would allow you to lubricate all the points from a single point on the ground. It might take a bit of hydraulic hose to do, but the job would be easy to do and save time. The cost of the divider, hose fittings etc would probably be under $800. Drop me an email if you want more info
