Lube Tip
Be Careful With Brand Switching
“We recently installed a number of new vacuum pumps that were factory filled by the OEM with their own EP2 grease.  Since we have a contract with a major oil company to supply all our oil and grease we want to use the same EP2 grease we use for other equipment in the mill.  Is there any problem switching from the OEM EP2 grease to our lube suppliers product?”
Just like lubricating oils, extreme caution should be used when switching from one brand or type of grease to another.  With greases, the major concern should be with the compatibility of the soap thickener used for each brand of grease.  For example, certain types of greases that use calcium sulfonate soap thickeners should not be mixed with aluminum or polyurea based greases.  Doing so can result in either a thickening or thinning of the soap medium, or separation of the base oil from the grease.
