Long-Lasting, Nonmelting Grease Provides Constant Protection
for High-Temperature Bearing Applications
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.
A versatile general purpose lubricant, Monocal General Purpose Grease is the right solution for industrial and mobile equipment used in a wide variety of industries. It is especially effective when used on bearings operating in a warm, moist environment or in operations where a lot of water is needed to keep equipment cool. Without effective, reliable lubrication, these conditions can lead to costly downtime and repairs.
LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Almasol High Temperature Lubricant contains Almasol.
Almasol® solid wear-reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and temperatures up to 1,900°F (1,038°C). It is attracted to
metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer but not building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry
DSC is a sophisticated technique for evaluating the oxidation characteristics of a sample of lubricant in a static condition. It is a rapid and reproducible
method that measures the heat flow under controlled conditions. Samples are put under pressure in a pure oxygen or air environment and the temperature raised until significant heat flow occurs. This heat flow indicates onset of oxidation.
The longer the time taken for heat flow to occur indicates better resistance to oxidation and hence longer lubricant life in the application. Samples may also be run at a fixed temperature and time recorded until onset of oxidation. While there is no exact correlation to field conditions, several minutes in the DSC represents several hundred hours in operation.
