Grease Types

Insert bearings from TRITAN are supplied 35-40% filled with lithium based NLGI #2 grease suitable for a wide variety of applications, speeds and temperatures. Most are pre-lubricated with Mobile Polyrex EM or Chevron SRI-2, which provide excellent lubrication up to 350° F. Special greases and fill percentages are available to meet your application demands.

To maximize bearing life, be sure you relubricate units with compatible grease at intervals recommended for your application. Apply lubricant through the unit’s grease fitting.
