CANTON, Ohio, March 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Timken Company today announced that it will begin filling Timken(R) Fafnir(R) ball bearing housed units with its own brand of pillow block grease.
Timken chose to convert from a commercial brand to its own pillow block grease after thoroughly testing and comparing both formulas in its laboratory for tribology, the study of lubrication as it relates to motion.
Although both greases are of high quality, I was pleased to see a couple of areas in our analysis where Timken's pillow block grease outperformed the commercial brand," said Craig R.
Offering long-life with moderately high-temperature characteristics, Timken pillow block grease is specifically formulated to maintain shear stability while resisting corrosion - even in the presence of salt water.
Those included the premium all purpose industrial grease, construction and off-highway grease, ball bearing pillow block grease
, high-speed ball bearing grease for electric motors, and mill grease.
The Timken Company recently began distributing a new line of industrial lubrication products, including All-Purpose Industrial Grease; Off-Highway Grease featuring heavy duty Moly; Pillow Block Grease for ball bearings; Premium Mill Grease; and High-Speed Grease for electric motor ball bearings.
Pillow Block Grease is intended for ball bearings in wet and corrosive conditions in noise-sensitive applications.
