Slow & Heavy Conditions and Typical Applications

 

Slow speeds and heavy loads are conditions most commonly experienced in industries such as mining, construction and metal manufacturing such as steel. Consequently, vibrational activity and shock load potential is also high which means that in-service, boundary lubrication conditions tend to dominate and thus present the greatest challenge to operational productivity. Increased wear and friction can act fast to shorten component life whilst reducing lubricant effectiveness through thermal and oxidative degradation. An appropriate lubricant can aid these challenges through mechanisms that enable greater surface separation as well as protection from high and shock load conditions.

Where

Off-shore, metalworking, mining

Gears, jacking, kilns, mills, winches, wire ropes, etc.

Important product properties:

Load carrying ability
Resistance to vibrations and shock loads
Lubricant film formation
