Castrol Spheerol™ EPL is a range of greases which comprises lithium based products, containing highly refined mineral oils, fortified with extreme pressure (EP) additives as well as corrosion and oxidation inhibitors.These greases have been formulated with additives that provide good film strength under medium to high loads. Application The Spheerol EPL range comprises general purpose greases designed for plant wide lubrication. The range extends from a NLGI 3 for general purpose bearing lubrication to a NLGI 00 (see separate data sheet) semi-fluid grease suitable for centralised lubrication systems and grease filled gearboxes. These greases provide good protection against rust and corrosion as well as resistance to water wash-out; which makes them particularly suitable for equipment where moist or wet conditions are common. The stiffer consistency afforded by an NLGI 3 grade makes this product particularly suitable for the lubrication of bearings that are vertically mounted, or components exposed to a high degree of vibration. The good levels of resistance to both corrosion and water wash-out, which makes this product suitable for equipment where moist or wet conditions are common.
