APSCO EP ٍSeries

General Details
-Apsco EP 0, 1, 2, 3, 004 and 023 products are a high performance family of five general-purpose industrial greases and two special-duty semi-fluid greases. These lithium hydroxystearate greases are formulated to provide extra protection against wear, rusting and water washout. They are available in NLGI grades ranging from 00 to 3, with base oil viscosities ISO VG 150 and 320.
-Apsco EP 0, 1, 2 and 3 greases are recommended for most types of industrial applications including heavy-duty applications where high unit pressures or shock loads are present. These greases provide excellent protection against rust and corrosion and resist water wash-out which makes them particularly suitable for equipment where moist or wet conditions are common. Apsco EP 0 and 1 are suitable for centralised systems. Apsco EP 2 and 3 are general-purpose greases. The recommended operating temperature range is from -20ºC to 130ºC but they may be used at higher temperatures if the lubrication frequency is increased accordingly.
-Apsco EP 004 and Apsco EP 023 are particularly suitable for the lubrication of enclosed gears and bearings in poorly sealed gear cases they can also be used in many other industrial applications
where conventional gear oils cannot be retained in gear cases, chain cases, etc. because of leakage due to worn or missing seals. The recommended operating temperature range is -25 to 120ºC for
Apsco EP 004 and -15 to 120ºC for Apsco EP 023.
Applications
•Apsco EP 0 and EP 1 provide good low temperature pumpability and are suitable for centralized lubrication systems and other applications where low temperature performance is required.
•Apsco EP 2 is recommended for multipurpose applications in anti-friction and plain bearings, bushings and pins under normal operating conditions.
•Apsco EP 3 is a stiffer NLGI grade 3 grease recommended for applications where maximum protection against penetration of water or solid contaminants is required.
•Apsco EP 004 and Apsco EP 023 are particularly suitable for the lubrication of enclosed gears and bearings in poorly sealed gear cases on most underground mining machinery with the exception of  electric motor gearing. Apsco EP 004 and Apsco EP 023 can also be used in many other industrial applications where conventional gear oils cannot be retained in equipment such as gear cases, chain cases, because of leakage due to worn or missing seals. Apsco EP 004 passes the SEW 1008 hour gear test requirement DR.EM.203 mod.
