Lubrication conversion

Frame lubrication conversion


• Never mix greases of different consistencies (NLGI 1 or 3 with NLGI 2) or with different

thickeners. For example, never mix a lithium-based grease with a polyurea-based grease.
Doing so may result in decreased performance.

• Remove the bearings and old grease if you need to change the grease type or

consistency. Failure to do so may result in equipment damage or decreased performance.

Use a grease that is suitable for high temperatures when you have frame pumpage
temperatures greater than 350°F (177°C). Ensure that mineral-oil greases have oxidation
stabilizers and a consistency of NLGI 3.

Table 23: Lubricating-grease requirements
Most pumps use Sunoco 2EP grease. High temperature units with a pumpage temperature greater than
350° F (177°C) use Mobil SCH32.
