Recommended use

Recommended for Caterpillar high temperature antifriction bearings in such applications as electric motors, alternators, fan drives, starters and generators.

It can also be used in automotive and industrial applications, particularly where equipment is operated intermittently in severe conditions.

Application

A Caterpillar Special Purpose Grease (SPG) is designed to provide excellent lubrication of Caterpillar ball and roller bearings operating over a broad temperature range. It is particularly outstanding at high speeds (10,000 rpm and greater) and high temperatures 150°C (300°F) or higher, and under moist conditions, especially where there is a possibility of salt water entering the bearings. SPG performs satisfactorily in bearings in temperatures as low as -30°C (-22°F). The outstanding performance of the grease is due, to a large extent, to the synthetic thickener and to the corrosion inhibitors used in its formulation. Caterpillar SPG will outperform most other greases in the following applications:

• Sealed for life ball bearings.

• Unsealed bearings on automotive alternators.

• Bearings on air conditioning units in homes and other buildings.

• Unsealed electric motor bearings operating under moist conditions.
