Castrol Molub-Alloy 860/460-2 ES - High-performance grease - 4303

Castrol Molub-Alloy 860/460-2 ES - High-performance grease - 4303

 

Castrol Molub-Alloy™ 860 ES greases are high-performance multi-service lithium greases formulated from premium petroleum base oils, lubricating solids and a combination of corrosion inhibitors specifically chosen for protection against corrosive process waters. These are designed to extend the service life of bearings in heavy-duty applications and at elevated temperatures. Molub-Alloy 860 ES greases provide an appropriate oil film for applications at slower to moderate speeds, higher loads, and/or higher temperatures sustained for longer periods of time. The load-carrying and anti-wear capabilities of Molub-Alloy 860 ES greases exceeds conventional complex greases. High performance is the result of chemical additives working synergistically with select Molub-Alloy lubricating solids which are dispersed uniformly throughout the grease. The lubricating solids offer their greatest benefit at slow speeds or when bearings endure heavy loads and shocks. Solids also protect newly machined bearing surfaces during the critical period of 'running in'. Good bearing surfaces are essential for long service life.

Available in 190Kg drum

 

Application

Molub-Alloy 860/460 ES greases should be used when loads are heavy, temperatures are elevated (up to 204ºC/400ºF) and speeds are slow, such applications include anti-friction bearings, bushings, sheaves and couplings. Primary industry, including steel - use Molub-Alloy 860 ES greases near hot ingots, soaking pits and reheat furnaces to lubricate pit cover carriages, mill stand screws, slipper couplings, roll bearings, manipulators and guide rolls for continuous casters. Paper Industry - on paper machines, use Molub-Alloy 860 ES greases on the 'wet end' couch, suction, and press roll bearings where water wash, corrosive process waters and high temperatures are present. Mining, construction, onshore drilling and offshore installations where heavily loaded slow speed applications subjected to shock loading in extreme environments.

 

 

User benefits include:

  • Excellent friction reduction characteristics due to Molub-Alloy solid lubricants - easier start-up, reduced heat and reduced energy leading to longer bearing life.
  • Exceptional water resistance - coating film stays on the surface even in the presence of water, even when exposed to the action of hot and chemically active process water.
  • Excellent EP and anti-wear properties - protects equipment against extreme/shock loading and helps minimise bearing component wear and hence extends equipment life.
  • Excellent mechanical stability and adhesion - grease keeps its consistency in service ensuring long-term protection and reduced consumption as film stays between lubricated surfaces.
  • Outstanding oxidation/thermal stability and high dropping point - provides reliable performance and extended lubricant life in high-temperature applications.
  • Formulated to address environmental concerns - it is free of antimony, barium, lead and zinc.

 

Additional Information:

  • At temperatures above 121ºC/250ºF, regular reapplications of 860 ES must be considered.
  • At temperatures near 177ºC/350ºF, weekly reapplications of 860 ES are suggested.
  • For continuous service near 204ºC/400ºF, reapply 860 ES daily or once every shift.

Molub-Alloy 860 ES greases have been used above 232ºC/450ºF. However, frequent reapplication of grease is necessary to prevent deterioration of the petroleum base oil. Reapply before the grease in the bearing stiffens. 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.

Castrol Tribol 5000 - Spray grease for open gears - 4309

Castrol Tribol 5000 - Spray grease for open gears - 4309

 

CASTROL TRIBOL™ 5000 with TGOA™ is a new, sprayable high-performance open gear grease. It was especially developed for application in cement, mining and other heavy industries, to assure proper tribo-technical and economical maintenance of open gears through automatic spray systems. CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 differs from conventional asphaltic type open gear lubricants, as it does not contain solvents nor solids. Outstanding extreme pressure (EP) antiwear characteristics are derived from the latest development in the field of surface improving additives designated TGOA. The TGOA additive package outperforms all other EP and antiwear additives because of its unique action on frictional surfaces. CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 is approved by major original equipment manufacturers. CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 is manufactured from mineral oil, selected for optimum physical and chemical stability, blended with special adhesive agents and thickened with aluminum-complex soap. The TGOA additive package is activated by high specific loads and corresponding temperatures causing a chemical-physical reaction. This results in an equalisation of surface roughness without creating abrasion. Therefore, surface roughnesses are reduced without the loss of surface material. The results of the TGOA additives can be compared with a rolling process in the micro-range. The surface roughnessess are gradually leveled and smoothed. The load carrying area is increased with increased safety loads on tooth flanks at reduced friction levels. If, because of shock loads or stop-and-go operation, surface roughness peaks redevelop, the TGOA additive package is automatically reactivated. Surface roughness is again equalized and lubrication optimized.

 

Available in 18kg tin

 

Application

CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 is a high-performance lubricant for open gears, wire ropes and similar applications. CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 was developed for application through automatic spray systems, but may also be applied manually. Heat or the addition of thinners is unnecessary. CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 is recommended for use on slow-moving, heavily loaded open gears. It is also used to lubricate rack-and-pinion gears, wire ropes, slides, cams and other machinery in mills and mines and other heavy industries.
Temperature range: -20°C up to + 120°C, +140°C intermittent.

 

 

User benefits include:

  • CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 forms a very tough lubricating film on friction surfaces. This stable film offers excellent resistance to high loads even at slow speeds. In the FZG special test for grease (A/2.76/50)
  • CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 reaches a scoring load stage of >12 with an extremely low specific wear of <0.20 mg/kWh.
  • No additional wear on pistons or plugging of nozzles of automatic spray systems, as CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 does not contain solids.
  • Regeneration of damaged frictional surfaces can occur on a microscale range.
  • The lubricant film is resistant to weather and environmental influences.
  • The stable protective lubricant film is easily and economically applied through automatic dispensing systems over a wide temperature range: -20°C up to + 120°C, 140°C intermittent.
  • Increased life of machinery and lubricants.
  • Extended lube intervals, reduced consumption and consequential reduction of maintenance and repair costs.

 

Additional Information:

  • CASTROL TRIBOL 5000 should not be mixed with greases of a different thickener.
  • Relubrication intervals should be adjusted according to operating conditions.
