High temperature, harsh environment grease

High temperature and harsh environment bearing grease LGED 2

SKF LGED 2 is a synthetic fluorinated oil based grease using a PTFE thickener. It is suitable for extremely high temperature from 180 °C (392 °F) up to 240 °C (464 °F) and/or agressive environments such as acids/alkalis, vacuum, oxygen etc.

  • Excellent oxidation resistance
  • Very low evaporation losses at high temperature
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Long life in aggressive environments such as very reactive areas with a presence of high purity gaseous oxygen and hexane

Typical applications:

  • Bakery/brick oven equipment 
  • Glass industry 
  • Kiln truck wheels 
  • Load rollers in copying machines 
  • Wafer baking equipment 
  • Textile dryers
  • Film streching tenders
  • High temperature fans
  • Vacuum pumps
