Grease Reference

Grease is a semi-fluid, semi-solid that delivers lubrication to a moving part or system of moving parts. Its uses are many, but it is predominately in industrial applications. It can be used in automotive applications such as trucks or buses.

Grease consists of a thickener that suspends the semi-fluid or oil that is composed of base oil and performance additives. There are two kinds of greases: Commodity greases that are multi-purpose and are low costing; and High-specification greases that contain expensive additives to meet demanding performance specifications.

Greases are then separated into consistency grades. Consistency is the ability of lubricating greases to resist deformation under a specific load. Below is a table outlining the different consistency grades.

Consistency Grades for Lubricating Greases

 

Lubricant Reference

All moving parts of a rolling or sliding system need a film of oil to run smoothly. The economic importance of lubricants is highly underestimated. About 30% of the total energy produced is wasted by friction and beyond that wear causes considerable damage to materials that make up the system.

A lubricant is defined as any liquid oil, petroleum or synthetic, that lowers the friction between two or more pieces of metals or metal alloys.

The essential job of the lubricant is to reduce this friction and maintain the machines operational for a longer time at a lower cost.
