Standard Grease Types
KML Pressed Steel Mounted Bearing Units are lubricated with Chevron SRI#2 from the factory. Chevron SRI#2 is a high temperature ball and roller bearing grease. It is formulated using a synthetic polyurea ashless organic thickener with additional rust and oxidation inhibitors. This grease provides superior corrosion protection in severe applications in the presence of both salt and fresh water. The temperature range of the Chevron SRI#2 is -20°F to 350°F (-29°C to 177°C). It provides excellent bearing life at operating temperatures of 185°F to 230°F (85°C to 110°C). KML nitrile rubber seals will begin to deteriorate above 230°F temperature. KML bearing units normal grease content is about one third to one half of the internal space in in the bearing insert. KML Pressed Steel Mounted Bearing Units generally are not relubricatable. They are factory sealed and considered Lubed-for-Life.
