Premium Quality Industrial Bearing Greases
Shell Gadus S3 T150 J Grease is a high technology grease designed to give optimum performance for grease lubrication in industrial bearings.
It is based on mineral oil with a special diurea thickener to give long life, low wear and shear-stable properties at high temperatures.
In high temperature applications Shell Gadus S3 T150 J 2 grease will outperform even fully synthetic (PAO) lithium complex greases proposed in the market.
Provides protection from the elements of corrosion.
Withstands washing with water, preventing loss of protection.
For use in steel plants using reheat furnaces requiring a zincfree formulation.
The diurea thickener used in Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease has a high melting point and the grease performance is limited only by the properties of the base oil and additive components.
When a bearing is running, most high wuality greases can maintain an adequate lubricating film even when the grease is loaded with water. However when the grease bearing is idle corrosion may occur causing pitting which can be destructive.
Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease is formulated with corrosion inhibitors to help protect bearing surfaces even when the grease is contaminated with water.
Although not specifically designated extreme pressue, Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease has been used very sucessfully in slow moving, loaded large bearings such as those found in continuous casters in steel plants.
Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease has a superior high temperature oxidation inhibitor system to ensure that they will withstand high operating temperatures without forming deposits. Unlike the soap thickeners used in most greases, the diurea thickener in Shell Gadus T150J 2 grease does not catalyse grease ocidation, indeed the diurea thickener offers inherent anti-oxidant properties. This contributes to longer grease life at higher temperatures.
The rheology of Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease is such that at low shear rates and with heating the consistency increases.
Consequently, in bearings operating at high temperatures the grease remains in place providing good sealing and continuous lubrication even in te presence of vibration.
Shell Gadus S3 T150J 2 grease exhibits very good resistance to water washout by immersion or spray.
Shell Gadus S3 T150 J 2 grease is particularly recommended for use in high temperature (150°C), lightly loaded industrial bearings. It is recommended for use where long operational life and extended re-greasing intervals are an important consideration, for example in Steel Mill applications.
