Williams Announces Lubricating Innovation For Steel Cables

After more than 45 successful years in the foreign and domestic shipping industry, building and operating ships, tugs, and barges, inventor Harold G. Williams, president of Atlantis Services, introduces Cable Saver, a device for the automatic lubrication of moving steel wire cable.

The unit, manufactured of polyethylene, is in two equal halves and may be installed without disturbing any part of the machinery.

Cable Saver™ is designed for use on revolving boom cranes, fixed cranes, drag lines, skagit heavy car movers, tension winches, elevators, drill rigs and many other automated machines using steel cable. Unit #1 accommodates cable sizes from 1/2 inch to 2 inches, unit #2 will fit sizes 2—3 inches.

An alemite hand pump, placed on a 35-pound can, pumps special lubricant into the Cable Saver. On larger operations, a regulated air pressure pump may be installed on a 55-gallon drum for lubrication.

When used on a machine with undamaged cable and properly lu- bricated, Cable Saver should double or triple the useful life of a cable.

It has six foreign registrations, including Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the British Isles. It is also registered in about one-half of the United States to date.
