BE­YOND THE EN­GINE

Gulf Western’s ground-break­ing Se­vere-Duty Diesel En­gine Oil – Top Dog In­de­struc­table 15W-40 CK-4, and the in­no­va­tion be­hind its In­de­struc­table ad­di­tive pack­age are well known, but lu­bri­ca­tion re­quire­ments

don’t start and fin­ish with your en­gine. There are many other ar­eas re­quir­ing pro­tec­tion via in­no­va­tive lu­bri­ca­tion to com­plete the en­tire ve­hi­cle pack­age, in­clud­ing the sys­tems within the ve­hi­cle it­self and the heavy load bear­ing an­cil­lar­ies that are con­nected to it.

Grease is of­ten a for­got­ten hero when it comes to ma­chin­ery and trans­port, and the un­fore­seen ab­sence of this mir­a­cle lubri­cant in a busy work­ing en­vi­ron­ment is one of the most com­mon causes of equip­ment dam­age and fail­ure, ei­ther through lack of main­te­nance or au­to­matic lu­bri­ca­tion sys­tem re­lated mal­func­tion.

Loads car­ried by com­po­nen­try re­quir­ing grease for lu­bri­ca­tion can be ex­treme, and all it takes is a brief pe­riod of time without pro­tec­tion to shorten its life­span dra­mat­i­cally, or even worse, cause com­plete and im­me­di­ate fail­ure, right when you don’t want it to hap­pen. Fail­ure that causes down­time, hefty re­pair costs and worst of all, a loss of in­come.

Gulf Western Oil takes great pride in their grease range with a vast amount of high­qual­ity prod­ucts on of­fer to suit just about any ap­pli­ca­tion, but two specif­i­cally suited to the trans­port in­dus­try is their Truck and Farm

Grease and Su­per Blue Grease.

Gulf Western Truck & Farm Grease is a very high-qual­ity ex­treme duty ap­pli­ca­tion tacky lithium com­plex grease. It’s suited to nearly all heavy-duty greas­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for agri­cul­ture, truck­ing, au­to­mo­tive, ma­rine, in­dus­trial and earth­mov­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

It’s for­mu­lated with a high base oil vis­cos­ity that of­fers ex­cel­lent wa­ter washout and weld load prop­er­ties, as well as con­tain­ing a com­bi­na­tion of poly­butene base stocks com­bined with lithium com­plex thick­ener, ex­treme pres­sure ad­di­tives and ef­fec­tive rust, ox­i­da­tion and cor­ro­sion in­hibitors.

Truck & Farm Grease re­sists wa­ter washout and ‘squeeze out’ from sur­faces re­quir­ing lu­bri­ca­tion un­der high load con­di­tions. It has been spe­cially for­mu­lated to in­clude a shear sta­ble tack­i­ness agent, which un­like other con­ven­tional lithium com­plex greases have this ex­tra tenac­ity for stay put lu­bri­ca­tion be­cause of this added ad­he­sive char­ac­ter­is­tic. It is also suited in very de­mand­ing ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing high loads, high tem­per­a­tures, high shock loads, dusty and wet en­vi­ron­ments. It is also suit­able for bear­ings, gears, cou­plings, turnta­bles, pins, ham­mers, etc.

Gulf Western Su­per Blue Grease on the other hand is a su­pe­rior multi-pur­pose grease pos­sess­ing ex­cel­lent lu­bri­ca­tion char­ac­ter­is­tics for a wide range of anti-fric­tion and plain bear­ings, gears and cou­plings in au­to­mo­tive, ma­rine, agri­cul­tural and in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tion.

The ex­treme pres­sure and anti-wear prop­er­ties en­able the grease to give long ser­vice life un­der high load­ing and shock load­ing con­di­tions from low tem­per­a­ture to very high-tem­per­a­ture en­vi­ron­ments. These spe­cial char­ac­ter­is­tics of shear sta­bil­ity, com­bined with the in­clu­sion of ef­fec­tive rust, ox­i­da­tion and cor­ro­sion in­hibitors, plus tack­i­ness ad­he­sive ad­di­tives, en­sure this grease is the pre­ferred rec­om­men­da­tion for ‘sealed for life’ anti-fric­tion bear­ings.

It’s the prime rec­om­men­da­tion for use in ap­pli­ca­tions where high ther­mal re­sis­tance is re­quired too. These ap­pli­ca­tions in­clude in­dus­trial, au­to­mo­tive, earth­mov­ing and ma­rine ap­pli­ca­tions such as wheel bear­ings, chas­sis, boat trailer wheel bear­ings and other ap­pli­ca­tions re­quir­ing grease lu­bri­ca­tion.
