What is Moly lithium grease used for?

The Mag 1 Super Lithium EP Moly Grease is designed for use in several applications, and delivers outstanding performance under severe operating conditions. Fortified with MOLYBDENUM DISULFIDE and GRAPHITE, it provides protection against seizure under high loads and severe shock load conditions.

Is white grease the same as lithium grease?

White lithium grease is a lubricant that typically comes in an aerosol form. It is a heavy-duty lubricant that is used for metal to metal applications. Lithium is a type of thickener, so it not only provides structure to hold the oil in place, but it also acts as a sponge by releasing small amounts of oil during use.

Can you put grease in a gearbox?

There are several methods for lubricating a gearbox, with the most common being grease lubrication, oil splash, and forced oil. Grease lubrication is suitable for low-speed operation, but it provides less cooling than oil, and is not recommended for continuous-duty or heavily loaded applications, even at low speeds.

What happens when you mix oil and grease?

When two incompatible greases are mixed, one of two things generally happens: the mixture hardens and will not release any of the oil or the mixture softens and releases all of the oil. In either case, the end result is basically the same; there is effectively no lubrication.

What is NLGI 000 grease?

Moisture-Resistant Gear Box Grease NLGI viscosity grade is a rating of a grease’s consistency. NLGI 000 is about the consistency of ketchup. Grease lubricates most efficiently within the listed temperature range. Melting temperature is the point at which grease will fail and run out of equipment, leaving it to run dry.
