Jewell Amber Oil is a semi-fluid grease, which is used primarily in manually lubricated valve trains calling for semi-fluid grease or non-pouring oil. It is also suitable for gear drives which are not well sealed and a conventional gearbox oil would leak out. Jewell Amber Oil should not be used in applications that require extreme pressure (EP) greases.

 

Features

         a lithium grease containing an ISO 680 base oil providing excellent penetration and unusual film thickness

         contains both corrosion and oxidation inhibitors for equipment protection and longer service life

         special tackifier is also included to help keep the grease on the surfaces to be lubricated

         pumpable at low temperatures because of its soft consistency

         maintains its semi-fluid consistency when subjected to shearing action

Benefits

         heavy base oil for a thick lubricant film on parts

         rust and corrosion protection

         non-hardening characteristics

        tacky consistency that helps resist water washout

 

Product Maintenance

Semi-fluid greases are handled differently than stiffer grade products. These greases can be hand applied or can easily be used in centralized systems. Oil pooling at the product surface can be remedied by simply stirring the separated oil back into the grease.
