Exxonmobil Lubricants and Specialties | Tue, 7 May 2013
Depending on the application, grease can present several benefits over fluid lubrication. Greases provide a physical seal preventing contamination ingress, resist the washing action of water and can stay in place in an application even in vertically mounted positions. Greases are suitable for applications where relubrication is infrequent or economically unjustifiable, due to the physical configuration of the mechanism, the type of motion, the type of sealing or the need for the lubricant ...
