  • The BOS wire rope lubrication systems are extremely strong, lightweight & easy to use.

  • The guide bushings/scrapers remove surface contaminants from the wire rope before being lubricated.

  • The guide bushings snap into place quickly without tools. There are no bolts or metal plates, reducing any damage to the wire rope.

  • Each guide bushing is machined to the diameter of the wire rope for maximum life & surface cleaning.

  • BOS spiral brushes fit a wide range of cable diameters.

  • Wire rope deformities can be run through the collar.

  • Wire ropes can be run through the collar in either direction and at any angle.

  • Wire ropes can run through the collar at speeds up to 150 Meters / Minute.

  • The pneumatic and electric pump fits all container sizes.

2100-BOS Collar, Fits Cable sizes from: 0.125" (3.2mm) to 1.69" (43.0mm)

For ROV & Oceanographic Research operations, there are air jets built in the collar to remove the sea water prior to lubrication.
