Castrol Spheerol EPLX 200-2 - High Performance Lithium Complex Grease - 9008

Castrol Spheerol EPLX 200-2 - High Performance Lithium Complex Grease - 9008

 

Spheerol™ EPLX 200-2 is a multi-purpose high-performance grease based on mineral oil and a lithium-complex soap; it is formulated to provide excellent high-temperature lubrication performance. They possess EP load-carrying properties, and contain additives selected to enhance oxidation, corrosion and wear resistance.

 

Application

Spheerol EPLX 200-2 grease is formulated for use in grease-lubricated plain or rolling bearings operating at temperatures from -30 to 150 °C. It can also be used for short periods at temperatures of up to 180 °C in bearings designed to operate under such conditions. In such cases, the frequency of re-lubrication should be increased; operators should contact equipment manufacturers for guidance. Examples of applications include all types of general industrial machinery, electric motors and machine tools, as well as applications involving higher temperatures - such as papermaking machinery or bearings of ventilation machinery and
oven fans. Spheerol EPLX 200-2 grease is also suited for bearing lubrication under highly loaded and vibratory conditions - such as in steel mills, railway axle-boxes and construction equipment. The long service-life potential of Spheerol EPLX 200-2 at temperatures over 100 °C makes it ideally suited to machines in which poor accessibility makes frequent regreasing difficult.

 

Advantages:

  • High operating temperature capability
  • Suitable for highly loaded and vibratory working conditions
  • Maximum equipment protection
  • Long service life
  • Excellent anti-corrosion properties
  • Very adhesive to surfaces

Castrol Braycote 803 EP - Grease, Wide Temperature, Hard Vacuum - 9820

 

Castrol Braycote™ 803 EP is a smooth, buttery, grayish colored NLGI #2 grease, based on a perfluoropolyether oil (Castrol Brayco® 812) and thickened with a tetrafluoroethylene gelling agent. It also contains an extreme pressure additive. This product is thermally stable in air, vacuum, or in the presence of oxidizers such as oxygen and does not polymerize under these conditions. This grease is designed to operate from below -65ºF to above 500ºF (below -54ºC to above 260ºC) due to its inherently good volatility characteristics. Castrol Braycote® 803 EP is compatible with all commonly used construction materials including metals, plastics and elastomers. Castrol Fluoroclean™ X100 or Castrol Fluoroclean ™ HE can be used to clean this product.

 

Application

Castrol Braycote 803 EP was developed for those applications in which long-term exposure to high temperatures and hard vacuums are expected and high load carrying capabilities are required. This product is stable with exposure to strong acids and oxidizers. Perfluorinated greases, in general, exhibit excellent shelf lives due to their intrinsic inertness.
