Lithium General Lubricating Grease Frequently Asked Questions

Lithium grease is a multipurpose grease known for its durability, high viscosity and stability. It is designed to provide long-term protection against oxidation, corrosion, extreme temperatures, wear and tear. Lithium and lithium complex greases are also characterised by excellent lubricity, good water resistance, resistance to high pressure and shock loads. They are suitable for a variety of applications including automotive, gardening, industrial, household and heavy-duty metal-to-metal applications.
Although lithium grease can be a multi-purpose product, it is designed to operate under specific performance loads, temperature ranges and environmental conditions where certain types of normal grease cannot be used. This is due to the different composition of the greases. The main difference between standard lubricating grease and lithium general lubricating grease is that standard grease is generally used in industrial environments, while lithium grease is primarily used in household environments. The main reason for this is that standard greases (especially clay-based greases) can withstand extreme pressure and high temperatures. Lithium general lubricating grease is typically tailor-made for different industries. So when it comes to its use, you can continue to utilise it in all aspects of your business. Lithium general lubricating grease is a multi-purpose grease that can handle the extreme pressure and high heat applications that industrial greases endure.
At a basic level, both oil and grease carry out similar functions. However, some applications require the specialised use of grease or oil. Let’s see which of each type of lubricant is more suitable for which application: A grease lubricant has a higher viscosity than oil. Thanks to the addition of synthetic grease additives and a thickening agent, grease lubrication is ideal for the following applications: Heavy-duty protection: Wheel bearing lubrication and other components that require a long-lasting and heavy-duty barrier against friction. Hard-to-reach engine parts: For lubrication of engine components where the oil circulation system cannot be installed. Sealing of engine components exposed to pollutants: Lubricating grease is better at sealing parts from water and dust pollutants due to the thickener that gives it a viscous consistency. Lubrication of sliding metal parts: Grease does not flow as fast as oil. Therefore it acts as a dry lubricant and better protects sliding parts against friction while ensuring smooth running. Special grease applications: Polyurea grease is ideal as a sealed-for-life lubricant; lithium grease is used for wheel bearing lubrication, while calcium grease works as a lubricant for marine applications. These greases contain special grease additives that make them suitable for specific jobs. Lubrication of worn parts: Grease additives provide stronger protection for worn seals than lubricating oil. This is because worn seals and bearings retain a dry lubricant such as grease better than oil. Noise reduction: Grease absorbs noise better than oil due to its thick consistency.
When it comes to grease and motor oil, there is never a bad lubricant. Both have advantages that give them an edge in certain applications. Let’s take a closer look at these advantages: The consistency of lithium grease is ideal for many applications. The thickening agent provides the following advantages over oil: Excellent start-stop performance as it is a dry grease that does not drain when the engine is switched off. Better control over leakage for worn seals and bearings due to grease consistency. Better at trapping pollutants and keeping the engine clean. Does not require a filter or pump to operate, it is self-powered. Provides long-term protection when it comes to waterproofing. Less quantity can go a long way without the need for refills.

Lubricating grease consists of at least 80 per cent base oils and 10 to 15 per cent thickeners. However, making a grease is not just a matter of mixing a range of ingredients.

Grease formulation is a complex process that requires multiple interactions between base oils, thickeners, extreme pressure (EP) additives, anti-wear additives, solid lubricants, antioxidants, tackifiers and friction modifiers.

The final lubricating grease properties depend not only on the formulation, but also on the manufacturing process (including homogenisation procedures) and the conditions under which the grease is stored.

The thickeners provide a fibrous matrix that contains the base oil. Under pressure some of this oil is released into the space between the mating surfaces of the machine parts to which it provides lubrication. When the pressure is removed, the lubricating grease is drawn back into the oil thickener matrix.

At the molecular level, the thickener is attracted to the polar component of the base oil (usually the oxygen atoms in a triglyceride or other oxygenated oil molecule). These attractions take the form of hydrogen bonding, capillary action and van der Waals forces and trap about 75% of the oil in the thickener. About one third of this 75% oil can be removed from the thickener matrix by gravity alone.

DIFFERENT GREASES FOR DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES
Different types of lubricating greases are used in various industries. For example, the mining and construction industries used calcium and calcium complex greases in the past, but are now moving towards calcium sulphonate complex greases.

Lithium and lithium complex multipurpose (MP) greases and aluminium complex greases are also widely used. Since most of the work in these areas takes place outdoors, these industries are more interested in biodegradable and environmentally friendly products.

A variety of calcium or lithium multipurpose lubricating greases are used in marine applications. Calcium sulphonate greases are also used as they hold better under salt spray. Marine industries are also moving towards greases that are biodegradable and comply with Ship General Permit regulations.

The agricultural and forest industries use lithium multipurpose greases and are moving towards vegetable-derived (ester) base oils due to their biodegradability. Food industry applications must comply with their own strict regulations and are moving towards calcium, clay and silica greases. They can also use aluminium complex and calcium sulphonate greases.

In the past, open gear applications relied on asphalt-based products. Now aluminium complex based lubricating grease is preferred over other types. Fixed speed joints can use lithium and lithium complex greases containing molybdenum sulphide or graphite EP additives, or preferably polyurea greases. Thus, the price of lubricating grease varies according to the type and purpose of use.
