HOW DO OPERATING SPEEDS AFFECT THE VISCOSITY OF SUPER LUBE®?
In general, thick oils are best for slow operating speeds and thin oils for high-speed applications. Super Lube® is a thixotropic material. This means it will thin at the point of shear as operating speeds increase in order to maintain the most... next...
HOW DOES TEMPERATURE AFFECT THE VISCOSITY OF SUPER LUBE®?
We previously spoke about the importance of viscosity in a previous blog post. What you may not know, however, is that oil viscosity can vary wildly in some oils depending on the temperature where it is applied. Super Lube®, because it is synthetic,... next...
WHY IS VISCOSITY SO IMPORTANT TO LUBRICATING OILS?
Viscosity, or the thickness of the oil, is important because it determines the lubricant's film strength and efficiency in preventing friction between moving parts. Thick oil has a high viscosity, and thin oil has a low viscosity. If oil is... next...
CAN SUPER LUBE® BE USED AS A VALVE LUBRICANT AND SEALANT?
A properly functioning valve is responsible for more than just controlling flow; it also needs to prevent leakage and prevent degrading over time. At Super Lube®, we have developed products that work well for valve lubrication and valve sealing.... next...
SUPER LUBE® COMES IN GREASE AND OIL FORM. WHICH SHOULD I USE?
Oftentimes we receive the question: Super Lube® comes in grease and oil form. Which should I use? The best lubrication takes place when a part can actually be bathed in the lubricant. In these applications, Super Lube® Oils should be used depending... next...
SUPER LUBE® & POWER OVER ETHERNET CLOCKS
A power over ethernet (POE) clock is a modern style clock which gets plugged into a corporation (or individual)’s network via an ethernet cable. This allows it to automatically boot, automatically set the time to atomic time, and is then ready... next...
HOW DOES SUPER LUBE® MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC LUBRICANT AEROSOL COMPARE TO AEROSOL LUBRICANTS LIKE WD-40?
Aerosols such as WD-40 sprays do not have anti-friction properties. Squeaks are only temporarily stopped because the spray wets the surface and then quickly evaporates. These sprays are good for releasing frozen nuts and bolts, but not for lubricating.... next...
SUPER LUBE® & WOOD PELLETS
We previously spoke about how Super Lube® is used by an American manufacturer of motors and other types of energy generators in their pellet stoves, helping create a green energy source. In addition to being used in the creation and maintenance... next...
