Premium Open Gear Lubricant
Vel-lith OGL is a premium lithium soap thickened Open Gear grease formulated with advanced extreme pressure (EP) and anti-wear (AW) additive technology. It contains specially selected polymers to provide extra adhesive strength and water resistance in the harshest climatic conditions found in mining and other industries.
Vel-lith OGL is a special grease developed primarily for Open Gear type equipment but also suitable for wire rope and other similar mining and industrial applications. In addition to its EP and anti-wear characteristics it also provides a high level of oxidation, rust and water washout protection. Vel-lith OGL has demonstrated outstanding performance with regard corrosion protection, low temperature pumpability and high temperature service. Most importantly, Vel-lith OGL possesses special adhesive components to resist throw-off and maintain a tenacious lubricant coverage to protect gear teeth and other metal parts.
The state-of-the-art equipment and procedures employed to manufacture Vel-lith OGL provide it with a high degree of mechanical and storage stability. It will not breakdown under high mechanical stress. In storage it will not alter consistency or release oil.
Vel-lith OGL is particularly recommended for use on open gearing found in the mining industry. Some examples are kilns, grinding mills, draglines and shovels. It also functions as a mutli-purpose mining lubricant and suitable for various wire rope and other applications where contamination with dirt and water are a concern.
The recommended operating temperature range is from –20 oC to 140 oC. Vel-lith OGL can endure higher temperatures for short periods or if the lubrication frequency is increased.
