Note: Gear coupling grease is essential for satisfactory operation for all flexible gear hubs & sleeves. The amount of lubrication you need for your coupling can be found in the installation instructions under "lube capacity" for your given coupling.
Lovejoy Gear Coupling Grease is specifically designed for gear coupling applications to increase coupling life while drastically reducing maintenance time. Its high viscosity base oil and tackifier combine to keep the grease in place and prevent separation and it is in complete compliance with NSI/AGMA 9001-B97 lubrication recommendations.
Lovejoy Coupling Grease is dark brown in color and manufactured with a lithium soap/polymer thickener, which has superior resistance to oil separation when subjected to high centrifugal forces normally found in couplings. Bearing or general purpose greases tend to separate and lose effectiveness due to high centrifugal forces on the various ingredients at high rotational speeds. These high centrifugal forces encountered in couplings separate the base oil from the thickeners. Heavy thickeners, which have no lubrication qualities, accumulate in the gear tooth mesh area resulting in premature coupling failure. Lovejoy Gear Coupling Grease is designed to highly resistant to centrifugal separation of the oil and thickener, which allows the lubricant to be used for a relatively long period of time.
One of the secrets to the success of Lovejoy Gear Coupling Grease is the variable consistency throughout the working cycle of the application. The consistency of our gear coupling grease changes with the operating conditions. Working of the lubricant under actual service conditions causes the grease to become semi-fluid, functionally solash lubricating the wear surfaces of the coupling. As the grease cools, it returns to the original consistency, thereby preventing leakage.
Lovejoy Gear Coupling Grease is available from stock in 14 oz. cartridges, 1 lb. and 5 lb. cans.
