Rexnord engineers have spent years measuring the wear rates on coupling components using various lubricants and coatings. Virtually every common industrial lubricant has been centrifuged under laboratory conditions per ASTM standard test methods for “Oil Separation from Lubricating Grease by Centrifuging.” The results of extensive research indicated that greases with high viscosities and low bleed rates produce the longest life.
Falk LTG is specially formulated to provide superior lubrication for flexible shaft couplings.
How does it work?
The consistency of Falk LTG changes with operating conditions. As manufactured it is an NLGI #1/2 grade. Working of the lubricant under actual service conditions causes it to become semifluid while the grease near the seals will set to a heavier grade, helping to prevent leakage.
LTG is highly resistant to separation, easily out performing all other lubricants tested. The resistance to separation allows the lubricant to be used for relatively long periods of time.
Benefits for your Application:
Increased coupling life.
Significantly extended re-lubrication intervals.
Reduced maintenance costs.
High load carrying capabilities.
Usable up to 250°F (121°C).
Extended Maintenance Intervals.
LTG has the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety & Inspection Service approval for applications where there is no possibility of contact with edible products (H-2 rating).
Falk LTG grease is compatible with most coupling lubricants. For optimum performance it is recommended that couplings be cleaned of old grease before packing with LTG.
