July 1, 2020

Drive roller chains for torque transmissionThese days, the future may seem more uncertain than ever, with big questions looming about what will happen to business, health, and society two or three months down the road. This also makes life more complicated for industries who have to make high-impact decisions about whether to lay up idle equipment for the long-term or wait a while in hopes that the market will improve. The oil and gas industry is a prime example, where rig-stacking may look like an absolute necessity one day and fade into a question mark a few weeks later. Even as economies start to rebuild, future downturns could see the return of intermittent operations and force decision makers to again face the preservation question.

For anyone responsible for equipment upkeep in the middle of these uncertainties, CorrLube™ VpCI® Lithium EP Grease is a must-have. CorrLube™ VpCI® Lithium EP Grease is excellent for intermittently operating equipment because it works in both operating and layup conditions, eliminating the need to remove one type of grease and apply another when transitioning from layup to operation and vice versa. CorrLube™ VpCI® Lithium EP Grease is specifically formulated with superior corrosion inhibiting properties against salt water, brine, H2S, HCl, and other corrosive agents, making it ideal for use in harsh outdoor environments, such as offshore platforms. It is extremely versatile for use in a variety of metal to metal applications where NLGI Grade 2 grease is required, including

  • Lubricating sleeves
  • Ball and roller bearings
  • Vehicle/equipment chassis
  • Fans
  • Bushings
  • Pulley bearings
  • Sliding high-friction areas
  • Generator end bearings
