Bentonite

Description:

Blue Chip’s plain multipurpose bentonite grease is a smooth textured, clay based grease suitable for use in applications where operating temperatures are above the limits of conventional soap based greases.  Clay-based greases are thickened by a fine suspension of bentonite clay, which offers resistance to extremely high temperatures coupled with good water resistance.

Applications:

This grease is suitable for very high temperatures such as may be experienced in the front wheel bearings of cars fitted with disc brakes.  The frequency of applications is an important consideration under severe operating conditions.

Warning: Bentonite based greases must not be mixed with any other greases.

Product Features:

  • An infusible drop point
  • Excellent protection against rust and corrosion
  • Resistance to water wash
  • Excellent lubricating properties

Description:

Adhesive, clay based grease with exceptional load carrying ability.  Resistant to severe shock loading, water washout and high temperatures.

Applications:

Particularly suited for use in centralised lubricating systems in shovels, on heavy earth moving equipment actuator joints, crusher plants, slow moving heavily loaded bearings, pins and bushes, prop shafts, universal and constant velocity joints, ash crusher bearings and open gears.

A high performance multipurpose grease for heavy industrial applications and general workshop applications where ordinary greases are easily displaced and therefore require frequent replenishment to satisfy arduous operating conditions. Also suitable for medium speed anti-friction bearings where heavy loads demand a superior grease.

Product Features:

  • Good pumpability in most lubrication systems at temperatures above 5°C ensures distribution throughout the area in which it is required.
  • No loss of lubricant due to water washout or cleaning down of equipment with water sprays.
  • Reduced operating costs as a result of the ability of the lubricant to stay in place and not leach or bleed out, hence less product is used.
  • Proven extreme pressure additives ensures maximum protection against shock loads with reduced metal to metal contact and minimal wear of moving parts.
