A new mineral oil-based, anhydrous calcium soap-thickened industrial bearing grease is specifically suited for high load applications. 

SKF says its LGNL 2 grease combines the water resistance and mechanical stability of lithium greases with the economic advantages of a calcium-based thickener. It is said to offer good mechanical stability and pumpability, water resistance as well as corrosion and wear protection.

The company explains that the product has undergone successful compatibility testing with LGMT 2, LGEP 2 and LGWA 2 greases and is expected to mix well with other mineral oil-based greases with a lithium thickener. Grease compatibility is the extent to which two greases can be temporarily mixed with each other without showing extensive hardening or softening of the mixture – either of which could endanger the lubrication of the bearing, explains SKF product manager: MaPro Eddie Martens.

The grease is suitable for a range of applications and can be used as an alternative to extreme pressure (EP) lithium-based greases. “LGNL 2 offers comparable performance to lithium greases at lower production costs which, combined with grease consolidation opportunities, deliver potential stock and subsequent cost savings for customers and end-users,” says Martens.

In addition to vibration applications, SKF notes that its industrial bearing grease is also ideal for use on conveyors, mills, crushers and agricultural equipment.
