GreaseFuchs Lubricants Co. is a top producer of grease in North America today. Fuchs manufactures a complete line of greases including lithium, lithium complex, calcum, calcium sulfonate, silica, silicone, aluminum complex and bentone greases to meet the demands of mining customers.
IGL-9 SeriesAvailable in viscosities of ISO 320 through 1000, IGL-9 utilizes a unique additive package that includes solid EP additives to ensure maximum protection of gears. The specially formulated base oil is highly resistant to oxidation, meaning long service life to the customer.
Lacerta Synthetic T.O. EP (LSTO)LSTO is a unique gear lubricant suitable for many problem gear sets. This thixotropic semi-fluid grease utilizes synthetic base oil and lithium thickened grease to lubricate gears and bearings in motion, but remain a semi-fluid in undisturbed areas, thereby reducing leakage and minimizing the probability of gear case failure due to loss of lubricant. LSTO is a desirable product for applications where accessibility to a gearbox is difficult during operation. The oxidation stability of LSTO gives the customer confidence of proper lubrication over long periods of time.
