Triple life grease

Published:  10 August, 2009

Lubricants manufacturer Rocol has extended its Sapphire product range with the addition of a new and advanced multipurpose grease that delivers three times the life span of conventional greases.

Rocol is billing new Sapphire Advance 2 as the ultimate multipurpose lubricant, and says it will outperform any conventional multipurpose grease.

The Rocol Sapphire range comprises 11 application-specific greases that all extend equipment life and service intervals. Brendan Kendrick, business unit manager for maintenance lubricants at Rocol, says that Sapphire Advance 2 will strengthen this already popular product range: "Sapphire Advance 2 combines advanced lubrication technology, the extensive experience of our development team and our knowledge of customer needs. This delivers the key features customers would expect to see from a Rocol product.

These include outstanding load carrying, long term wear protection, oxidation stability, water resistance and corrosion protection - as well as delivering a proven life span which is superior to alternative products.

"This product is ideal for fast moving applications, such as fans and electric motors, and excels in arduous, high-speed conditions. It is also perfect for applications where acceleration/deceleration is experienced - such as short duty cycles - vibration and shock loads."

Sapphire Advance 2 has been designed for the effective lubrication and protection of ball, roller and plain bearings. It can be applied manually or with an applicator and is compatible with other soap-thickened greases although, for optimum performance, Rocol recommends the removal of the previous lubricant before use.
