Lith EP Greases possess excellent lubrication characteristics. They are recommended for bearing lubrication under normal or severely loaded service conditions. The NLGI semi-fluid grades No. 000, No. 00 and No. 0, are recommended for “self-levelling” applications or once through, centralised automatic or semi-automatic lubrication systems. The heavier NLGI No. 1 and No. 2 grades, which have a somewhat buttery appearance with a slightly stringy texture, are recommended for automotive, marine and industrial applications. Lith EP Greases are manufactured with Lithium 12-hydroxy stearate thickener and selected paraffinic and naphthenic base oils combined with rust, oxidation, and corrosion inhibitors, and extreme pressure additives.
MULTI-PURPOSE GREASES: for high and low-temperature applications. Protect all moving parts from shock loadings, prevent scuffing and wear due to their excellent shear stability, high load bearing and extreme pressure characteristics. WATER RESISTANCE: water washout is minimal so that they provide optimum lubrication under wet or damp conditions. BEARING AND BALL JOINT LIFE EXTENDED: because of the high level of extreme pressure activity. HIGH SHEAR STABILITY: ensuring long service particularly in sealed anti-friction bearings. The excellent resistance to mechanical shear combined with high film strength help to maintain grease consistency for extended lubrication service. OXIDATION INHIBITED: assuring long service life. RUST AND CORROSION INHIBITED: The inhibitors protect all metal components promoting effective lubrication under corrosive or rust-prone situations.
INDUSTRIAL AND GENERAL – Lith EP Greases are recommended for ball, roller, needle and slow speed plain bearings operating under all service conditions up to approximately 140 oC. They have an excellent service record under high load and/or shock load service conditions. AUTOMOTIVE – Lith EP Greases are recommended for chassis, universal joints and wheel bearings particularly those in vehicles fitted with disc brakes, where high temperatures cause ordinary grease to soften and give ineffective lubrication. For service in cars, trucks, tractors, trailers etc. For more severe high temperatures, consider using Lithplex Tac Grease. Hi-Tec suggests that the equipment manufacturers’ recommendations for grade, performance requirements and general operating conditions should be checked prior to use.
