Castrol Spheerol EPL 2

VISCOSITY - ISO 180

Bearing grease

DESCRIPTION

Castrol Spheerol™ EPL is a range of greases which comprises lithium based products, containing highly refined
mineral oils, fortified with extreme pressure (EP) additives as well as corrosion and oxidation inhibitors.These greases
have been formulated with additives that provide good film strength under medium to high loads.

APPLICATIONS

The Spheerol EPL range comprises general purpose greases designed for plant wide lubrication. The range extends
from a NLGI 3 for general purpose bearing lubrication to a NLGI 00 (see separate data sheet) semi-fluid grease suitable
for centralised lubrication systems and grease filled gearboxes. These greases provide good protection against rust
and corrosion as well as resistance to water wash-out; which makes them particularly suitable for equipment where
moist or wet conditions are common.

The stiffer consistency afforded by an NLGI 3 grade makes this product particularly suitable for the lubrication of
bearings that are vertically mounted, or components exposed to a high degree of vibration. The good levels of resistance
to both corrosion and water wash-out, which makes this product suitable for equipment where moist or wet conditions
are common.

ADVANTAGES
  • High mechanical stability – the grease keeps its consistency in service ensuring long lubricant life
  • Good adhesion – continuous lubrication and reduced consumption as film stays between lubricated surfaces
  • Good water resistance – the grease film remains on the surface even in the presence of water
  • Resistant to copper and steel corrosion – helps prevent rust and oxidation on metal surfaces
  • Excellent EP and anti-wear properties – protects equipment against extreme loading and helps minimise
    bearing component wear

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

In order to minimise potential incompatibilities when converting to a new grease, all previous lubricant should be
removed as much as possible prior to operation. During initial operation, relubrication intervals should be monitored
closely to ensure all previous lubricant is purged.
