Wet & Dirty Conditions?

Wet&Dirty

Wet and dirty conditions are found in a large range of segments where water, humidity, process liquids or dirt have direct or indirect access to the lubricant and components. Such conditions can damage components, as well as greatly reduce the effectiveness and performance life of the chosen lubricant. An appropriate lubricant can aid these challenges by providing good sealant properties and resistance to liquids.

Hycal 272 WR is a good example of the positive properties of an Anhydrous Calcium thickener combined with a high viscosity blend of mineral oil, polymer and an optimal combination of additives. This grade is a perfect choice for heavy loaded low speed plain bearings, pins, bushings and joints in wet and corrosive conditions. It is used in the marine, agriculture, forestry, and construction segments. The grease is available with and without solid lubricants and is easily pumpable in most centralised lubrication systems.

A Lithium Alternative

Posted by AXEL Christiernsson on Jan 19, 2021 3:34:56 PM

Lithium based greases have dominated global grease technology for several decades reaching roughly 75% of total lubricating grease volumes. Increased Lithium demand to serve a burgeoning market for electric car batteries has increased interest in competing thickener technologies. Calcium-thickened greases are a serious alternative to many of the lithium greases with their excellent water resistance and surface adhesion. Anhydrous Calcium thickened greases with their low temperature lubricity, increased service temperature, shear stability and corrosion protection, are ideal for applications in the marine, agriculture, construction and forestry segments, among others. The thickener is also suitable for use in food grade and environmentally friendly greases. See Hycal (AXEL's Anhydrous Calcium technology) Features and Benefits below.

On October 8, 2020 AXEL in Tulsa, Oklahoma celebrated one year with no OSHA recordables. While AXEL’s commitment to safety starts with leadership, it must be supported by our employees. The Tulsa employees picked up the proverbial safety culture torch and never looked back. Each employee, from management to our temporary staff, plays a huge role in driving the safety culture on a day to day basis. Along with that drive, AXEL ensures employees are provided the necessary tools and resources to be successful. Examples include safety initiatives like “I see it, I own it, I act”, on-going training, personal protective equipment, policies and procedures, and open lines of communicators to voice EHS concerns or needs.
