Tips For Choosing The Right Grease For Your Application

“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.

Thickener Type

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

The Mobil Rarus™ 400 Series is a line of premium performance ashless air compressor lubricants designed to meet the stringent requirements of the major compressor manufacturers.

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.

Approvals: BS65801992

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.

Danfoss Pressure Sensor Available for SIL 2 Applications

Danfoss launches a new safety pressure sensor, DST P92S, approved for use in SIL 2 and PLd applications. The new sensor is designed to enhance safety, improve performance and reduce maintenance costs in material handling, construction, agriculture and forestry. DST P92S is TÜV approved as well as compliant with EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 61508.

The sensor represents best in class functional safety with several built-in safety measures. Among others, the sensor performs start-up diagnosis at every machine start up. During operation, cyclic diagnosis is performed every 30-40ms. If any failure is detected during start up or operation, the sensor switches to safe state.

The smart self-diagnosis of the sensor reduces the need for redundant, parallel circuits in the sensor itself reducing the size to one of the smallest in the market.The new Danfoss pressure sensor supports the functional safety of the entire machine.

Facts about DST P92S:

  • SIL 2 and PL d approved by TÜV
  • Performs moisture and harness checks to detect moisture in the connector 
  • Checks electrical interference on the signal line with 4-20mA/20-4mA dual output for the entire loop
  • Sealed transmitter and connector to prevent moisture ingress even in harshest environments
  • Compact in design to fit all applications (Hex22)
  • Temperature range: -40 to +85°C 
  • Pressure range: 10-2.000 ba

Bosch Makes Measurement Easier For Professionals

Professional Laser Rangefinder

The GLM 30 Professional is only 10 x 4 centimeters in size and weighs approximately 100 grams. This makes it the most compact and lightest professional rangefinder made by Bosch. It fits in any pocket and can be conveniently transported to any work location.

To take account of the conditions on jobsites, it is also shock dust and splash protected. These features together with the one-button operation and the auto-sum function make the GLM 30 Professional a solid basic tool for quick efficient measurement. There is yet another advantage: the measuring accuracy and range of the instrument are certified in accordance with ISO standard 16331-1. This means that the specifications provided are based on defined parameters that are the same on all certified tools. This enables tradespeople to make an objective comparison of the measuring accuracy and range of certified laser rangefinders. The GLM 30 Professional laser rangefinder including protective case and batteries is available with the Industrial Tools & Truck Spares Division of German-Gulf Enterprises Ltd.
