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.

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

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.

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.
