Features

Mobilux EP greases have a long history of proven performance and have demonstrated good performance in the areas of corrosion protection, low temperature pumpability and high temperature service life. A Timken OK load of 40 lb illustrates their load carrying and extreme pressure capability.

  • Reduced wear under heavy or shock loading and vibration for good equipment reliability and availability
  • Protection against rust and corrosion and resistance to water washout for equipment protection and good lubrication even in presence of water
  • Extended bearing life potential in wet environments for reduced bearing costs and unanticipated downtime
  • Good pumpability in centralised systems (Mobilux EP 0 and 1)
  • Effective leakage control (Mobilux EP 004 and Mobilux EP 023)

Applications

  • Mobilux EP 0 and EP 1 provide good low temperature pumpability and are suitable for centralised lubrication systems and other applications where low temperature performance is required.
  • Mobilux EP 2 is recommended for multipurpose applications in antifriction and plain bearings, bushings and pins under normal operating conditions.
  • Mobilux EP 3 is a stiffer NLGI grade 3 grease recommended for applications where maximum protection against penetration of water or solid contaminants is required.
  • Mobilux EP 004 and Mobilux 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 gearings. Mobilux EP 004 and Mobilux 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. Mobilux EP 004 passes the SEW 1008 hour gear test requirement DR.EM.203 mod.

mobilux ep 023
we use this lubricant in our right angle drives on our drilling rigs used for geo-technical drilling....the seals take a beating due to the drilling mud and enviormental situations....this lube almost eliminates leakage past the seals...which in turn saves the equipment and we keep on drilling....leakage is minumal on a comprimised seal

This is for a mower deck gear box and is listed in the mower deck manual. But is it a grease or liquid. It feels like a liquid when I dip my finger in the fill hole. Is there an acceptable substitution for this?
Jim S on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Mobilux EP 023 is a semi-fluid grease, it is a light grease. If your manual is stating to use this grease then Mobil techs suggest that you should stay with this grease.
