Castrol Molub-Alloy 1000 - Extreme temperature grease - 4372

 

Castrol Molub-Alloy™ 1000 extreme temperature grease utilises synthetic base oils in conjunction with a blend of Molub-Alloy lubricating solids selected for high temperature service. The synthetic fluids in Molub-Alloy 1000 were selected for their controlled low volatility, minimum residue after evaporation and high VI for additional film strength at elevated temperatures. The combination of synthetic fluids and a unique thickening system offers physical stability in prolonged service at high temperatures. Molub-Alloy 1000 remains more pliable than conventional high temperature greases. As a result of the higher viscosity synthetic base fluids used in Molub-Alloy 1000, the film strength at elevated temperature is superior to that of petroleum base oils. It is also formulated with a combination of rust and oxidation inhibitors for prolonged service life without relubrication.

Available in 15.9Kg tins

 

Application

Molub-Alloy 1000 is designed for use in applications where elevated temperatures are encountered, heavy and shock loading occurs, and where bearing speeds are low to moderate. Molub-Alloy 1000 has been successfully used in a wide range of elevated temperatures industrial applications such as:

  • In overhead sealed trolley wheel conveyor bearings passing through paint drying ovens in an air conditioner manufacturing plant. Temperatures reached 180°C/356°F and relubrication cycles were every 8 months.
  • In overhead sealed trolley wheel conveyor bearings passing through a paint drying oven in an automotive assembly plant. Temperatures reached 185°C/365°F with relubrication cycles every 6 months.
  • In floor conveyor bearings passing through paint drying ovens in an automotive assembly plant. Temperatures of 190°C/374°F were reached with relubrication cycles every 6 months.
  • In overhead sealed trolley wheel conveyor bearings passing through paint drying ovens of a motorcycle assembly plant. After 4 months without relubrication in temperatures of 180°C/356°F, the bead of product on the outside of the trolley wheels was still soft and pliable. Relubrication cycles were every 6 months.
  • In a cement rotary kiln as a gas-seal lubricant to minimise hot gas leakage.

 

 

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.
  • Synthetic base fluid and unique thickening system – the combination of synthetic fluids and a unique thickening system offers physical stability in prolonged service at high temperatures. This combination makes Molub-Alloy 1000 more pliable than conventional high temperature greases, leading to longer bearing life, extended lubrication cycles and uninterrupted service.
  • Molub-Alloy 1000 grease is engineered for prolonged service from 177°C/350°F to 288°C/550°F. Molub-Alloy 1000 also withstands intermittent exposure to temperatures up to 343°C/650°F
  • Formulated to address environmental concerns – it is free of antimony, barium, lead, and zinc.

 

Additional Information:

Molub-Alloy 1000 should not be mixed with other greases or oils. In case of doubt please consult your local Technical Services. Although approximate temperatures and relubrication cycles are denoted previously, these should be used only as general guidelines due to variation from application to application.
