BP Energol OGL 461 - Open Gear Lubricant
Energol OGL series are advanced technology open gear lubricants incorporating both extreme pressure additives and finely dispersed graphite for load carrying. They are intended primarily for the lubrication of large, slow to medium speed, heavily loaded gears. In addition to providing outstanding load carrying, they are formulated to have excellent adhesion and resistance to "fling-off" under extreme pressure conditions.
Energol OGL 461 is a NLGI 2 grade Lithium soap thickened product based on a ISO 460 mineral base oil.
Energol OGL 1500 is a semi-fluid NLGI 00 grade thickened with Lithium soap and based on a ISO 1500 base oil.
Due to the exceptionally high base oil viscosity of Energol OGL 1500, this product is particularly suited to the most arduous applications under sever conditions of high load and low speed.
The low temperature properties and pumpability of Energol OGL 1500 are suited to spray applications under a wide variety of conditions. The products is easily pumped from drum to application spray nozzles with conventional transfer pumps.
The exceptional FZG gear test performance of Energol OGL products demonstrates a high level of protection against wear and scuffing.
Energol OGL series are lead-free and chlorine-free. They contain no solvent or diluent and pose minimal environmental concern. Absence of solvent or diluents also enables the products to maintain full specification during storage and use.
Energol OGL series are recommended for the lubrication of large, heavily loaded slow moving open gears in heavy duty industrial applications as found in the steel, cement, paper, chemical and mining industries - with the 1500 grade being particularly suited to the most severe high-load and low-speed conditions.
They can be used in these applications where the operating temperatures are high, for example, ring gears on cement kilns and ball mills. They also have applications in plain bearings where the high base oil viscosities and high graphite content give additional protection.
Energol OGL series provide the following benefits:
Outstanding load-carrying and anti-wear properties for superior protection against wear
Good protection against rust and corrosion leading to longer equipment life, reduced downtime and reduced maintenance costs
Reduced consumption and lower lubricant costs arising from the good adhesive nature of the product
Minimal impact on the environment because of the absence of lead, nitrite and solvent
Energol OGL 1500 is suitable for the most arduous conditions and has excellent pumpability and sprayability giving improved lubrication and reduced energy consumption
