A premium quality multi-purpose grease for use in all anti-friction and plain bearings subjected to high load conditions. Used extensively for applications throughout industry and the automotive sector.
Features & Benefits:
• Excellent extreme pressure and anti-wear performance
• High degree of corrosion protection
• Highly versatile multi-purpose grease
Lithium EP3 can be applied manually, or by using a standard grease gun (400gm cartridges available), or via a central lubricating system capable of pumping an NLGI No.3 grease; consult a qualified centralised lubrication system engineer before installation. As with all greases used for the first time, check compatibility with the grease applied previously and if necessary, purge bearings prior to application. Likewise, as a general rule, take care not to over-lubricate and apply the quantity of grease recommended by the bearing manufacturer.
