The Timken Company,Canton, OH, has expanded its line of industrial lubricants to include ultra-high speed spindle grease, food-safe grease, synthetic industrial grease and multi-use lithium grease.
In addition to protecting bearings from heat, wear and corrosion, three of these specially formulated lubricants offer synthetic base oil technology. This helps promote longer overall grease and bearing life, as well as a wider operating temperature range compared to conventional greases. In addition to the synthetic greases, Timken multi-use grease rounds out the offering as an economical solution for less demanding applications.
"Bearing life ratings have increased throughout the years, making the lubricant a limiting factor toward total bearing life," said Dave Pierman, product manager of lubricants/lubricant delivery systems. "Increasing the lubricant life through synthetic technology creates a total product package that is more commensurate with today's expected bearing life."
Each Timken lubricant is designed to be application- and environment-specific. For example, the ultra-high speed spindle grease is designed for bearings in machine tools for drilling or grinding that experience ultra-high speeds and extreme temperatures.
Food safe grease is a semi-synthetic product that is H1 and Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) certified. It offers the food and pharmaceutical industries protection against hot and cold temperatures, moderate to high speeds, medium loads and incidental food contact.
Timken's synthetic industrial grease is intended for use in extreme temperature, severe loads, corrosive and slow- to moderate-speed environments like those found in wind energy main bearings, pulp and paper machines, marine applications or general heavy industry.
Multi-use lithium grease is suited to handle moderate speed, temperature and water, and light to moderate loads, such as in pins and bushings, water pumps, track rollers or other general industrial applications.
