Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) August 9, 2008
Lubrication Engineers, Inc. (L.E.) is proud to announce an addition to their range of industrial lubricants that contain DUOLEC™ - L.E.'s dual acting Extreme Pressure / anti-wear additive. L.E.'s new 1302 DUOLEC™ Industrial Lubricant has been added to the specialist product line to fulfil the requirement for an un-dyed superior performing oil that can take the place of the previous LE 300 MONOLEC®. LE 1302 DUOLEC is an ISO 68 high performance industrial oil designed for use in any industrial gear or bearing application that requires a thermally stable, extreme pressure lubricant. It also meets the requirements for use in many machine tool ways, journal bearings in blower fans and water pumps.
The 1302 DUOLEC™ Industrial Lubricant has the same impressive performance characteristics of the 1600 series DUOLEC™ Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricants. One of the many uses for this amber coloured lubricant is as a light to medium duty Way Oil. Other uses for this light coloured oil are for heavily loaded bearings where the condition of the oil is determined by visual evaluation of its colour.
LE 1302 DUOLEC™ is formulated using a blend of high quality paraffinic and synthetic base fluids which, in combination, have been found to provide excellent oxidation resistance, thermal stability and film strength. It contains a highly shear stable tackiness system that allows it to adhere to metal components, yet remain tacky and within viscosity grade during high shear use or filtration. This unique blend of base fluids and thermally stable EP additives enables it to resist sludge formation in high temperature gear and bearing applications.
L.E.'s latest industrial lubricant separates readily from water to provide effective lubrication when moisture is present. In most cases, LE 1302 DUOLEC™ will float on top of the cutting fluid & not emulsify. When used on machine tool ways, this allows easy separation of the LE 1302 DUOLEC™ from the cutting fluid. It also contains non-silicone defoaming additives which will not be removed during oil filtration. LE 1302 DUOLEC™ also meets the performance specifications for the Cincinnati Machine P-47 amongst several other specifications.
"We have many machine shop customers worldwide who successfully used our LE 300 MONOLEC® lubricant as a way oil. After the introduction of our new DUOLEC™ additive it was important to use this to develop an un-dyed superior performing lubricant as an ideal replacement. LE 1302 DUOLEC™ is great for any application calling for an ISO 68 amber coloured EP gear or way lubricant," said Scott Schwindaman, President, Lubrication Engineers Inc.
What is DUOLEC™?
DUOLEC™ is L.E.'s proprietary additive that incorporates technology specifically for use in L.E. gear lubricants. It is a temperature activated, dual acting, liquid additive that imparts special properties and synergies to the L.E. products in which it is used. DUOLEC™ increases lubricant film strength and protects metal surfaces outperforming conventional lubricant additives at greater temperatures and loads.
