Exxon Unirex N 2 (35 lb Pail)
Exxon (now Mobil) Unirex N 2 is an NLGI Grade 2 premium lithium complex thickened bearing grease. It is suitable for high temperature service in rolling element bearings and a variety of other industrial applications, especially electric motor bearings. Unirex N 2 meets the requirements of Lubricating Grease DIN 51825 - K2N - 30L and ISO L-XBDHA 2. The lithium complex thickener resists softening / run out of bearings at temperatures to 190°C. Laboratory bearing rig tests show outstanding continuous lubrication performance at bearing temperatures of up to 140°C.
Unirex N 2 is not intended to be used under extreme pressure (EP) conditions where extra anti-welding properties are required. It is recommended for light to moderately loaded, high temperature and high speed bearing applications.
Unirex N greases exhibit excellent high and low temperature performance, resistance to water and corrosion, and long service life in a range of bearing applications.
|Features||Advantages and Potential Benefits|
|Excellent high-temperature performance||Lithium-complex thickener resists softening / running out of bearings at temperatures up to 190°C|
|Outstanding grease life||Laboratory bearing rig tests show outstanding continuous lubrication performance at bearing temperatures of up to 140°C|
|Very good low-temperature characteristics||Start-up power requirements are low at temperatures down to at least -20°C. Meets DIN 51825 low temperature torque requirements at -20°C|
|Excellent mechanical stability||Exhibits excellent resistance to softening due to mechanical working|
|Excellent water and corrosion resistance||Resists water washout and protects bearings against corrosion|
|Excellent performance in high-speed applications||Channelling characteristics provide excellent performance in high- speed deep-groove ball bearings. Unirex N3 is recommended where DmN (mean bearing diameter X rpm) exceeds 360,000|
UNIREX N 2 is an NLGI No. 2 grade and is preferred in most cases for application by hand-packing or by grease gun. UNIREX N 2 is recommended for the lubrication of electric motors. It is suitable for NEMA (National Electric Manufacturer's Association) Insulation Class A, B, and F motors.
UNIREX N 3 is an NLGI No. 3 grade and is used for special applications such as sealed-for-life bearings, vertically-mounted bearings, and higher-speed bearings.
Most of the uses for UNIREX N involve manual methods of application. Although UNIREX N 2 is suitable for use in automatic centralized systems, equipment served by these systems would normally not require the long-life properties of UNIREX N, since one of the functions of automatic systems is to replenish the lubricant at relatively short time intervals. UNIREX N 3 should not be used in such systems.
