Q&A: When do I use grease with or without EP (extreme pressure) additives for my application?

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Q: When do I use grease with or without EP (extreme pressure) additives for my application? 

A: Applications that experience high axial or thrust loads are mainly the ones that reap the best benefits from EP additives. Nevertheless, bearing life testing actually shows reductions in fatigue life from using EP additives in certain applications. Greases with EP additives are ideal only for applications that have high axial or thrust loads.

There is oil separation in my grease. Is it still OK?

Friday, April 5th, 2013

Yup, you can still use it. Some oil separation or puddle formation that you may observe on top of grease in containers like drums or pails are not unusual, so no worries there. Keep in mind that grease lubricates a bearing by means of oil to the bearing contact. That said, releasing oil is a necessary function.

For the most part, the amount of oil separation is not very important when compared with the mass of grease in the container. Typically, you can safely stir back the separated oil into the bulk of the grease in the pails or drums. It has been observed that you can lessen most of these time-related oil separations if you keep the surface of the grease smooth during storage (i.e., avoid leaving “craters” in the grease).

The grade or consistency of the grease is actually linked to oil separation. The lighter the grease grade, the more likely it will become to oil bleed. Lastly, oil bleed can be affected by large fluctuations in storage temperature. Therefore, you must always keep storage temperatures as consistent as possible.
