EXTREME PRESSURE GREASES


Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection
LE-Extreme Pressure Grease Extreme Pressure Greases
Wear prevention and the ability to carry a load are important characteristics of industrial lubricants. Both of the evaluated lubricants contain heavy ISO 460 viscosity grade synthetic base fluids. This helps when the greases operate in a hydrodynamic regime, However, functionality of the lubricants under elastohydrodynamic (EHD) and boundary lubrication regimes is also important. EHD and boundary lubrication are often more dependant upon the chemicals used as extreme pressure additives in a lubricant rather than a function of the thickener system.

LE’s greases are formulated for a variety of industries and applications to provide protection for components and parts such as bearings, bucket pins, bushings, cables, cams, chains, chassis and open gears. LE greases offer varying benefits such as reduced wear, reduced operating temperatures, longer equipment life, enhanced performance, increased efficiency, increased uptime, lower grease consumption, longer service intervals and reduced maintenance.

HIGH TEMPERATURE GREASES


Long-Lasting, Non-Melting Grease Provides Constant Protection for High-Temperature Bearing Applications
LE-Industrial High Temperature Grease ‘High’ is relative when characterizing temperature conditions. Bearings running in a steel mill roll-out table application may be exposed to process temperatures of several hundreds of degrees, and may experience sustained temperatures of 250ºF to 300ºF (120ºC to ±150ºC).

Automotive assemblers hang painted metal parts on long conveyors and weave them through large drying ovens to dry painted metal surfaces. Operating temperatures for these gas-fired ovens are maintained around 400ºF (205ºC).

In these two cases, the selection criteria differ appreciably. In addition to heat resistance, the grease to be used in a hot steel mill application may require exceptional load-carrying capability, oxidation stability, mechanical stability, water wash resistance and good pumpability, and at a price suitable for large-volume consumption. With all of the important factors to consider, it is useful to have a grease selection strategy.

The selection must include consideration of oil type and viscosity, oil viscosity index, thickener type, stability of the composition formed by the oil and the thickener), additive composition and properties, ambient temperature, operating temperature, atmospheric contamination, loading, speed, relubrication intervals, etc.

With the variety of details to resolve, the selection of greases that must accommodate extreme temperature conditions poses some of the more challenging lubrication engineering decisions.

Given the variety of options, the potential for incompatibility problems and high prices for a given high-temperature product, the lubrication engineer must be selective and discriminating when sourcing products to meet high-temperature requirements.

Bearings operating in or near heat-generating equipment are subject to temperatures that cause ordinary greases to melt and run, leaving critical bearing surfaces unprotected. Almasol® High Temperature Lubricant is designed to withstand high temperatures, staying in place to provide constant lubrication. It also resists oxidation and vaporization. By ensuring longer lubrication intervals and fewer bearing failures, Almasol High Temperature Lubricant helps contribute to increased production and a healthier bottom line.

ELECTRIC MOTOR GREASE


Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection
LE-Industrial General Grease Electric Motor Greases
Incorrect Grease Selection
Selecting the right grease for electric motor applications can make all the difference in the protection and performance of bearings. Electric motors require lubricants with specific characteristics. Use of the wrong grease often leads to early electric motor failures.

LE Solution
The grease consistency preferred for electric motors is normally NLGI 2 or 3, with a base oil viscosity of 100-150 cSt @ 40°C. Other characteristics to look for include good channeling characteristics, low oil bleed, oxidation resistance, anti-wear additives, and mechanical stability. A polyurea thickener system is preferred for most electric motor applications, but grease with an aluminum complex, lithium complex or calcium sulfonate thickener are also good options.

Most electric motors are designed with grease-lubricated, antifriction, rolling-element bearings. Grease is the lifeblood of these bearings because it provides an oil film that prevents the harsh metal-to-metal contact between the rotating element and races. Bearing troubles account for 50 to 65 percent of all electric motor failures, and poor lubrication practices account for most of these bearing troubles. Proper maintenance procedures, planning and the use of the correct lubricant can increase productivity by reducing these bearing troubles and motor failures.

LE single point lubricatorIncorrect Grease Application
Common problems include overgreasing, undergreasing, and not greasing at all – all of which can lead to premature electric motor failures. Additionally, operators often have to manually grease in hard-to-reach or unsafe areas.

LE Solution

CHAIN & CABLE GREASES


Self-Healing Fluid Seals & Protects Surfaces
LE-Industrial CHAIN & CABLE GREASES Chain & Cable Greases
Wire rope forms an important part of many machines and structures. It is comprised of continuous wire strands wound around a central core. There are many kinds of wire rope designed for different applications. Most of them are steel wires made into strands wound with each other. The core can be made of steel, rope or even plastics.

Wire ropes (cables) are identified by several parameters including size, grade of steel used, whether or not it is preformed, by its lay, the number of strands and the number of wires in each strand.

Years of field experience have shown that wire rope life can be maximized by using the right lubricants combined with the right application method. Companies that have recognized the importance of proper wire rope lubrication and adopted best practices have gained a huge advantage by lengthening wire rope life, eliminating costly replacements and improving safety. Factors that influence wire rope life and performance include type of operation, care and environment. Two problems include wear and corrosion. Wear is accelerated by stress-loading; shock-loading; heavy, jerking loads; or rapid acceleration or deceleration (speed of the cable stopping and starting). Corrosion is caused by fumes, acids, salt brines, sulfur, gases, salt air, and humidity; and can be accelerated by elevated temperatures. The right type and quantity of lubricant will protect the wire rope from degradation, regardless of cause

LET US HELP


Common lubricant suffering points for the marine industry include:
Engines - Greases that are subject to heat can melt and run out of bearings. Greases that do not form a good seal can let in contaminants. LE has greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads with ease. We also offers automatic lubrication systems for making sure grease is applied in the right place at the right time in the right quantity.

Engine oil - If you are looking for longer oil life while still protecting your engine from the demands of the workload, LE can help you safely extend oil drain intervals with our superior, long-lasting engine oils and LEAP oil analysis.

Diesel fuel - Water can get into the fuel of diesel equipment kept outside, causing a loss of power. Injectors get dirty from the buildup of soot. In addition, environmental issues have led to the use of lower performance diesel fuel in on-road and off-road mobile equipment. LE has diesel fuel improvers that address these problems. They can clean up your fuel pumps, injectors and combustion chambers, thereby helping you regain fuel economy, reduce emissions and lower the overall cost per mile or hours of operation.

Wire rope - Do your wire ropes, cables and draglines become rusted, corroded or frayed? You can protect your wire rope and cable from high stress loading, shock loading, jerking and heavy loads with LE's full line of penetrating and coating wire rope lubricants. Whether you want lubricant to penetrate to the core or to coat and seal, LE has a full range of protective lubricant solutions, including wire rope lubricant applicators to reduce labor costs and ensure safe, reliable operation.

Difficulties with maritime lubrication
Although ship building involves some unique processes, component manufacturing is not dissimilar to other manufacturing industries. The difficulty in marine lubrication comes with maintenance procedures. In such a busy industry most ships don’t get much time to rest, and maintenance is done mid-voyage, with machinery operating. The equipment can be in hazardous locations and often exposed to the brutal forces of nature. Add violent rocking to the list and maintenance procedures can be hazardous.

New Extended Warranty: Documented use of LE452, LE453 Wirelife™ Almasol Wire Rope Lubricant or Earthwise™ EAL Wire Rope Lubricant will double the Viper warranty period to 24 months.

SYNTHETIC GREASE

Non-synthetic lubricants aren’t always the best lubricants for the job. In applications with extremely high or extremely low temperatures or very heavy loads, synthetic lubricants may overcome the challenges better than non-synthetic lubricants. For example, a synthetic gear oil would provide exceptional protection in heavily loaded gearboxes exposed to high and low temperature extremes. Another example is a synthetic engine oil or synthetic motor oil, which would provide better viscosity stability in extreme temperature conditions.

The performance advantages offered by synthetic oils and synthetic greases vary by product, but they include improved thermal stability, improved oxidation resistance, a high viscosity index, improved low-temperature properties, lower evaporation losses, reduced flammability and a lower tendency to form residues.

LE’s synthetic oil and synthetic grease varieties contain special additives that further enhance their performance. Depending on the particular lubricant and what LE formulated it to do, these additives include one or more of the following:

  • Monolec® LE’s exclusive wear-reducing additive creates a single molecular lubricating film on metal surfaces, vastly increasing oil film strength without affecting clearances. Monolec® allows opposing surfaces to slide by one another, greatly reducing friction, heat and wear.
  • Almasol® LE’s exclusive solid wear-reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and extremely high temperatures. It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer without building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol® minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
  • Quinplex® LE’s exclusive impact-resistant additive helps to form a barrier against corrosion and enables outstanding water resistance, tackiness and enhanced mechanical stability.
