Industrial grease is an increasingly popular lubricant and an indispensable element for any business. With superior properties, industrial grease is no longer a choice but become an essential demand in today’s industry.
What is industrial grease?
It is a semi-solid product, manufactured by combining three important basic ingredients, base oils, thickeners and additives.
Depending on the application, industrial greases may offer some excellent lubrication benefits. Greases are used to lubricate structures that do not require frequent lubrication or at open locations requiring low lubricant leakage, and to provide sealing action to prevent water penetration and incompressible materials.
Industrial grease is also resistant to abrasion, resistant to the action of oxidants or environmental impacts thanks to its composition (base oils, thickeners, additives).
The constituents of industrial grease
Base oil is the largest component in the composition of industrial grease, accounting for 80 – 97% of the weight. The choice of base fluid can be mineral oil, synthetic oil or any liquid that provides pure lubricant.
A thickener can be any material that, when combined with base oil, will produce a liquid or semi-solid. The main thickeners used in grease include lithium, aluminum, calcium soap; clay; polyurea; … Lithium soap is the most common thickener used today
Additives: Additives and denaturing agents commonly used in lubricants
Is oxidation or rust inhibitors, polymers, extremely high pressure (EP) additives, abrasives, lubricants.
Advantages and disadvantages of industrial grease and industrial oil
|Criteria||Industrial grease||Industrial oils|
|Feeding device||Grease sealed bearings do not require reshaping for a long time||Requires a continuous feeding device (drip feed, splash feed, circulating system)|
|Consumption||May be kept to the minimum required||Significant quantities required|
|Leakage||Inability due to its seal forming characteristics||Probably if the sealing system is sufficient|
|Use for high speed applications||Limit||Useful|
|Remove contaminants||Is not||Continuous removal by filtration or centrifugation|
|Friction loss||High capacity, but reduced torque can be achieved by switching channels in rolling bearings||Low possibility|
|Cooling effect||Not capable of cooling||High cooling capacityo|
