Lubricating Grease

Green Curved Line

Lubricating greases are used to lubricate mechanical systems & tools that cannot be automatically supplied with oil.  Greases are applied to mechanisms that can be lubricated infrequently and where a lubricating oil would not stay in position.

Lubricating Grease

Green Curved Line

Lubricating Grease = Base Oil + Additive + Solid Lubricants + THICKENER

Difference between oil and grease.

Green Curved Line

– Greases are usually oils with thickener added. – At room temperature, greases are usually solid, while oils are usually liquid. – All oils can be turned into greases, but not all greases come from oils.

Difference between oil and grease.

Green Curved Line

All oils and fluids are Newtonian Fluids (A Newtonian fluid’s viscosity remains constant, no matter the amount of shear applied for a constant temperature. These fluids have a linear relationship between viscosity and shear stress), but greases are generally non-Newtonian Fluids.

What is THICKENER?

Green Curved Line

A thickener is a thickening agent is a substance that can increase the consistency of a liquid without substantially changing its other properties. 

What is THICKENER?

Green Curved Line

Thickeners are used in the lubricating industry.  Edible thickeners are commonly used to thicken sauces, soups, and puddings without altering their taste; thickeners are also used in paints inks, explosives, and cosmetics.

Tasks of Thickener

– Thickens the Oil. – Control the release. – Seals the friction point. – Protects against moisture & Dust.

Types of Thickeners

1. Soaps 2. Non Soaps Soap thickened greases consist of simple, mixed and complex soaps.

Non-soaps Thickeners

– Bentonite, – Polyureas – Plastics (PTFE).
