|Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP are versatile, multipurpose extreme pressure greases with high
adhesive properties designed for a wide variety of
automotive and industrial applications.
They are manufactured using selected highly refined,
high viscosity base oils, a lithium-12 hydroxystearate
thickener, rust and oxidation inhibitors, and extreme
pressure and tackiness additives. They are red in color
and stringy in texture.
Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP provide thicker shockabsorbing
oil film protection and greater water
resistance than conventional multipurpose greases due
to their high viscosity components.
The high viscosity components and tackiness additive
give Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP an excellent
adhesive quality which provides a tenacious lubricating
film in working parts. The lubricants stay in place
under severe abrasive operating conditions to resist
water washout and shock load wear.
The outstanding tackiness characteristics of Chevron
Ultra-Duty Greases EP make these products somewhat
harder to pump than the historical soft, buttery
greases. For this reason, we recommend the use of a
heavy follower plate with air-driven grease pumps.
Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP lubricate well at low
temperatures. The ASTM D 1478 low temperature
torque test shows that they retain their lubricating
capacity, as defined by military specification
MIL-G-81322, down to about -26°C (-15°F).
- High shock load protection
- High load-carrying protection
- High corrosion and rust protection - Chevron
- Ultra-Duty Greases EP pass the ASTM D 1743
bearing corrosion test.
- High water resistance
- Extended service lubrication
Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP are recommended for use in automotive and industrial equipment operating under severe service except where very high operating
temperatures are encountered. Typical applications
are: mining equipment, construction equipment,
material handling equipment, marine deck equipment,
marine deck cranes, oil field equipment, offshore
drilling equipment, paper machines, dredging
equipment, logging equipment, rock quarry equipment,
etc., operating in water, mud, or dusty conditions.
Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP will provide the needed
shock load and rust protection and, best of all, they
stay put which means less frequent regreasing. They
are not our primary recommendation for high
temperature wheel bearings. Chevron Delo® Greases
EP, Chevron RPM® Automotive LC Greases EP, or
Chevron Black Pearl® Greases EP are preferred for
wheel bearing applications.
In industrial service, Chevron Ultra-Duty Greases EP
are recommended for use in all types of plain and
antifriction bearings from 1-1/2 inch OD to over 16
inch OD, operating at speeds from 50 to 3000 rpm, as
well as slides, gears, ways, etc.
