“What you should look in for a good grease”? German-Gulf Enterprises Ltd offers its expertise in helping you select the right grease for your application.
When selecting a grease, one must study the application, its operating conditions in which the grease will run. For a fuller understanding of what gets into a good lubricating oil – it is important for you to first concentrate on its elements, including the base oil type, thickener type and base oil viscosity.
Base Oil Viscosity
Base oil viscosity is one of the most significant attributes of any lubricants and is often left out and misunderstood when it comes to grease. The base oil viscosity for bearings can be estimated utilizing a formula that requires the focal ratio and dimensions of the bearing into consideration. It is decisive to understand a grease base oil viscosity in order to select the right grease for the application and conditions.
Base Oil Type
The base oil type is determined by the conditions in which the grease will perform, such as high and/or low temperatures, load and force per unit area. The load and pressure not only will influence the base oil type, but also the additive package (extreme pressure, anti-wear, etc.). While synthetic oils will be more dependable over a wider range of temperatures and conditions, mineral base oils can be applied if you have a more constant operating temperature.
Most people believe the thickener is the lubricating part of the grease, but it actually is what carries the lubricant in place, like a sponge. A good thickener type will be compatible with the equipment manufacturer recommendations and will be able to defy the conditions under which it must do. There are many types of thickeners, but most are not compatible and should not be mixed.
There are many different types of applications and environments and just as many types and stains of grease to get along with these machines and conditions. Thus, a good grease will be the one that best works for you and your machinery.
For CRUSHERS and a variety of HEAVY EQUIPMENT, we recommend:
1. MOBIL Rarus

Approvals: DIN 51506 VD-L (1985-09)
The use of the Mobil Rarus 400 Series oils can result in cleaner compressors and lower deposits compared to conventional mineral oils, resulting in longer running periods between maintenance intervals. Their excellent oxidation and thermal stability safely allow extended life capability while controlling sludge and deposit formation.
2. MOBIL Coolant
Mobil Coolant ready mixed is a high performance coolant designed to provide efficient protection down to 36° C during winter condition. It is a ready to use product that has been premixed with 50% Mobil Antifreeze and 50% water.
Mobil Coolant ready mixed contains mono ethylene glycol and helps to prevent winter freezing and summer overheating over a 2 years period. It also provides very good protection against corrosion.
