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.

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

VIPER MKII MID

SUPERIOR PROTECTION OF WIRE ROPES
The release of the Viper MkII provides the same excellent wire rope lubrication performance with the added benefit of a 32% lighter collar and custom built high flow grease pump. Watch the video to see the benefits of the new Viper MkII.

Viper Mid MKII Fast and effective lubrication of wire ropes with a diameter between 8mm to 67mm. The Viper Mid MKII lubricates ropes at up to 2000mt/hour.

Recommended for use with Wharf Cranes, Ship Cranes, ROV Cables, Mind Winders, Mobile Cranes, Oil & Gas Platforms, Anchor Ropes, Deck Winches, Overhead Cranes and Ship Loaders.

The Viper Wire Rope Lubricator provides grease penetration, moisture displacement and total coverage by forcing lubricant into the core of the rope.


The Viper MKII Wire Rope Lubricator range provides fast and effective cleaning and lubricating of wire ropes. Wire ropes from 8mm (5/16” ) to 165mm (6-1/2”) in diameter can be automatically greased at speeds up to 2,000mt per hour.

The Viper MKII with the new cast Aluminium collar is 32% lighter and combined with the unique inbuilt carry handles and shoulder strap enables single person wire rope lubrication. Ideal for use on all cranes, towing lines and mooring lines, the Viper MKII eliminates the HS&E risks associated with manual lubrication. Use of the Viper MKII provides improved wire rope lubrication by forcing wire rope lubricant under pressure into the wire rope.

Other lubricators just coat the surface of the ropes but the unique seal design of the Viper wire rope lubricator means the “wire dwell time” in the pressure chamber is up to 80% longer. This longer dwell time means greater lubricant penetration which leads to increased rope life and extended relubrication intervals.

Why use the Viper

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.

Open & Enclosed Gears


Self-Healing Fluid Seals & Protects Surfaces
LE Industrial Gear Grease Open & Enclosed Gears
Almasol Syntemp Lubricant is excellent for use on large open gears exposed to very high temperatures. It is also recommended for use on kiln girth gears, large industrial gearing, oven chains, sliding surfaces, large slow moving (friction) bearings and similar applications.

Large open gears on grinding and pulverizing mills present significant lubrication challenges due to the high-load, heavy-shock nature of the application and constant exposure to harsh environmental conditions, such as cement, limestone, coal or silica dust. Lubrication reliability best practices for open gears include selecting the right lubricant and the right method of application to combat these challenges. Choosing wisely will help protect the gears from wear, increase uptime, and – in most cases – dramatically reduce gear set operating temperatures, lubricant consumption, energy consumption, and waste disposal. This will lead to a cleaner, safer working environment. The right choice for open gears is a heavy-duty, high viscosity lubricant with an extreme pressure, anti-wear additive package. A lubricant with a Timken rating of 70 pounds or more reduces wear and extends gear life.

LE Industrial Gear GreaseIn the past, open gear lubricants were asphaltic-based, had Timken ratings of 20 to 25 pounds, and relied on excessive volume for adequate protection. Most open gear lubricants on the market today use a variety of thickeners, such as graphites, silicas and traditional soap thickeners. With these newer types of lubricants, operators still report excessive consumption that leads to difficulty with the lubricants building up around the shrouds, not draining well and creating housekeeping issues.

Other concerns include needing to be heated for pumpability, plugging spray system nozzles, not spraying in low temperatures, drawing in contaminants, obscuring the gear from visual inspection, and not reducing gear temperatures. LE’s Pyroshield lubricant is a cool, clear, clean, pumpable solution for easily lubricating open gears at far less cost in the end. Kilns, finish mills and other open gear applications are no longer the nasty place you don’t want to be – thanks to Pyroshield and LE’s other open gear solutions.
