Frequently asked questions

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions

What is Grease?
Grease is a solid or semisolid lubricant formed as a dispersion of thickening agents in a liquid lubricant. Grease generally consists of a soap emulsified with mineral or vegetable oil.
What are the types of Grease?
A true grease consists of an oil and/or other fluid lubricant that is mixed with a thickener, typically a soap, to form a solid or semisolid. Greases are usually shear-thinning or pseudo-plastic fluids, which means that the viscosity of the fluid is reduced under shear.

    Common Grease Types and Characteristics :-

  • Aluminium Complex Grease
  • Bentone (Clay) Grease
  • Calcium Grease
  • Lithium (12-Hydroxy Stearate) Grease
  • Lithium Complex Grease
  • Polyurea Grease
  • Sodium Grease (Soda Soap)
Why Grease is used?
The function of grease is to remain in contact with and lubricate moving surfaces without leaking out under gravity or centrifugal action, or squeezing out under pressure. The major practical advantage of grease is that it retains its properties under shear at all temperatures that it is subjected to during use
Where Grease is used as a lubricant?
Grease is generally used for: Machinery that runs intermittently or is in storage for an extended period of time. Because grease remains in place, a lubricating film can instantly form. Machinery that is not easily accessible for frequent lubrication.
What is the most common grade of grease used in industry?
The most commonly used grease is NLGI #2. Softer grades are often used for improved pumpability or low-temperature service, while harder grades are used where leakage or sealing are particular concerns. The Cone Penetration Test (ASTM D217) measures grease consistency.
Can I mix grease with gear oil?
For example, gear oil may include a sulfur-phosphorus extreme-pressure (EP) additive. A grease's thickener is made first, and then oil is added to achieve the desired grade. Therefore, mixing oil and grease will change the ratio of the base oil to the thickener, resulting in a lower consistency grade.
Can you put grease in a gearbox?
There are several methods for lubricating a gearbox, with the most common being grease lubrication, oil splash, and forced oil. Grease lubrication is suitable for low-speed operation, but it provides less cooling than oil, and is not recommended for continuous-duty or heavily loaded applications, even at low speeds.
What happens if you mix grease types?
When two incompatible greases are mixed, one of two things generally happens: the mixture hardens and will not release any of the oil or the mixture softens and releases all of the oil. In either case, the end result is basically the same; there is effectively no lubrication.
Why is grease used instead of oil?
Greases are better for leakage control and provide better seals against contaminants. Grease can remain in equipment longer and tolerate a variety of conditions. It is also easier to apply in most industrial settings.
What is the difference between NLGI 1 and NLGI 2 grease?
There are two basic types of grease for most equipment and machinery applications: NLGI #1 grease and NLGI #2 grease. Less thickener makes a #1 grease more tractable and slippery, while #2 grease has more thickener, making it stiffer and great for all-purpose applications.
What is food grease?
Food grade grease is a lubricant that is formulated using synthetics and delivers high performance without compromising safety or health. Food grade grease is used on the following: High and slow speed chains. Caster races and bearings.
Should you grease bearings?
Bearings need grease for one reason only, to reduce friction. As long as the lubricant is performing that service well, there should be no need to change it, or add more. Monitor, measure and trend friction levels with ultrasound to know when it is the right time to grease.
Is it possible to over grease a bearing?
Too much grease volume (overgreasing) in a bearing cavity will cause the rotating bearing elements to begin churning the grease, pushing it out of the way, resulting in energy loss and rising temperatures. This can result in accelerated wear of the rolling elements and then component failure.
What is the best high temperature grease?
High-Temp Grease was engineered to meet the demands of protecting high-speed bearings in applications involving high temperatures and heavy mechanical loads. With a drop point of 625° F, it's also excellent in cold weather.
What is aluminum complex grease?
Aluminum complex grease is widely used in food and beverage processing plants, a food grade grease made with food grade white mineral oil or synthetic hydrocarbon.
What is water-resistant grease?
A grease that provides superior lubrication and corrosion protection in wet and moist environments. It resists water wash-out and allows the grease to stay in place in the presence of water while providing rust and corrosion protection.
What is high pressure grease?
This grease remains stable and in place under high pressure, heavy loads, and shock loads. It's often used for demanding mining, construction, and automotive applications.
What is the best grease for high speed bearings?
The polyurea base makes it last four times longer than regular grease, and you would only have to reapply it annually. The grease is designed for high-speed applications, and it's also plastic safe
What is calcium sulfonate grease?
Calcium sulfonate greases are made by converting a fluid detergent that contains amorphous calcium carbonate to a grease containing calcite particles. Because of the calcite particles' lubricating properties, performance additives containing sulfur, phosphorous or zinc may not be needed.
