Frequently asked lubricant questions (FAQ)

Extreme pressure grease is made to withstand high pressure or shock loads.
Additives such as sulphur, phosphorous, and zinc combinations generally give EP properties to the grease. Further, solid lubricants such as molybdenum disulphide and graphite can also be added to achieve certain EP properties.

EP additives can be classified in to temperature dependent and non temperature dependent. Temperature dependent are activated when reacted with metal surface at elevated temperatures caused by extreme pressure. The non temperature dependent additives contain colloidal carbonate salt dispersed within sulfonate. Colloidal carbonate forms a film and prevents contact between metal surfaces.

Grease that can be used for more than one application can be considered as multipurpose grease. Multipurpose grease is generally made of lithium soap with high quality paraffinic oil fortified with antiwear, EP, and antioxidant additives with corrosion protection. Multipurpose grease possess higher dropping point (about 1800c) and offer good resistance to oxidation and protection against rust and corrosion.

Separation of oil or puddling in the grease pails / containers are common occurrence in lubricants when exposed to heat for long or stored in a hot environments. The puddling can be mixed with the bulk of grease in the pail / container by safe stirring. Removing puddling can change the density of the grease. Follow standard procedures to mix the puddling with grease and ensure no external particles contaminate the grease. Oil separation will also occur when uneven top surface is formed after removal of grease from a container. Hence, it is suggested to level the top surface using a spatula. Consult with the lubricant manufacturer if you observe excessive oil separation.

Environment in which the lubricant is stored plays a crucial role in lubricant performance. Lubricants stored for long under extreme environmental conditions such as high temperatures, higher temperature variations, severe humidity and corrosive environments can affect the lubricant performance based on the product category.

Oils stored improperly beyond storage life established by the supplier, can have issues such as oxidation, sedimentation build up and moisture absorption. For greases, oil separation from the grease would be the primary concern.
Ambient temperature, clean and dry atmosphere can ensure maximum storage life of a lubricant. A consultation with the lubricant manufacturer on the shelf life of the lubricant is recommended to ensure quality.

The measure of consistency is called penetration. Penetration depends on whether the consistency has been altered by working. Standard test procedures established by American Society for Testing and Materials International (ASTM) and accepted by industry are ASTM D 217 and D 1403, measure penetration of unworked and worked greases.

The NLGI has established consistency numbers ranging from 000 to 6, corresponding to specified ranges of penetration distance of the standard cone into the test grease. Table below lists the NLGI grease classifications along with a description of the consistency of each classification.

Dropping point of a lubricating grease is an indicator of the heat resistance of the grease. and is the temperature at which the grease is no more a thickened lubricating medium. The dropping point indicates the upper temperature limit at which a grease retains its structure, not the maximum temperature at which a grease may be used.

Few greases have the ability to regain their original structure after cooling down from the dropping point.

The most important feature of a grease is its consistency. A grease that is too stiff may not get pumped into areas requiring lubrication. While a grease that is too fluid may leak out. Grease consistency depends on the type and amount of thickener used and the viscosity of its base oil. A grease consistency is its resistance to deformation by an applied force.

Greases are made by mixing a solid material, called a thickener, with a base oil and property enhancing additives; but it’s the oil that forms the lubrication film. For better understanding, grease thickener can be thought of as a sponge saturated with oil. Moving parts squeeze the oil out of the sponge like thickener for forming the lubrication film. Typically, the base oil constitutes the largest proportion of grease weight at about 80-90%, followed by thickener at 10 to 20% and additives under 10%.

Viscosity: It is a measure of resistance to flow of a lubricating oil.

Viscosity index: It is defined as rate of change of viscosity with respect to temperature.

Significance:

  • It is the most important property which determines the performance of lubricating oils under the influence of temperature
  • A lubricating oil should have sufficient viscosity to retain a lubricating film on the surface
  • On machine part moving at slow speeds under high pressures, a high viscous oil should be used as it better resists being squeezed out from between the rubbing parts.  Light oils can be used for lower pressures and high speeds.
  • It is not possible to maintain a liquid oil film between two moving or sliding surfaces if the viscosity is too low and hence excessive wear will occur.

The pour point of an oil is the minimum temperature at which the oil turns into semi solid and almost losses its flow characteristic. At low temperatures, the viscosity of the oil will be very high, causing the oil to resist flow. This is important in equipment that operates in a cold environment or handles cold fluids.
