Lubrication of bearings
Our customers are using many different types of grease in their motor driven systems. For a service company it is practically impossible to stock all different variants of grease used by our customers.
SPIT’s processes are organized with the LEAN principle in mind and when you can pick a grease out of more then 100 variants of grease, a mistake is quickly made. This kind of mistakes can quickly lead to catastrophic failures.
When a customer does not have a specification for grease we use one of the below mentioned types of grease. We attach a sticker (see below the examples of this sticker) on each motor in close proximity to the lubrication points where we mention which type of grease is being used in this specific machine. Please check this carefully since both sorts of grease cannot be mixed with each other.
- Lithium Complex
- Long Life
- High Temperature
Shell Gadus S3 V100 is a premium multipurpose grease that you can rely on to provide excellent wear protection and long bearing life for high-speed bearings operating at high temperatures and carrying low loads. It uses a lithium complex thickener to provide excellent mechanical stability. Shell Gadus S3 V100 is widely recognized and listed by leading equipment makers.
- Long Life
- Extreme Temperature
Premium Multipurpose Grease Shell Gadus S3 T100 Greases are high technology greases designed to give optimum performance for grease lubrication in industrial bearings. They are based on mineral oil with a special diurea thickener to give long life, low wear and shear-stable properties at high temperatures. In high temperature applications Shell Gadus S3 T100 Greases will outperform even fully synthetic (PAO) lithium complex greases proposed in the market.
