FORT WORTH, Texas, USA 12 Oct 2005 -  Lubrication Engineers Inc (LE) has launched its latest ‘Enhanced Lubricant’ to the world – LE 1299 ALMAPLEX® Ultra-Syn Lubricant is a heavy duty synthetic grease. It is engineered to provide optimum performance capabilities under extreme equipment operating conditions. LE 1299 ALMAPLEX® is an Aluminium Complex thickened grease containing an ISO 460 viscosity synthetic base fluid. This combination provides excellent performance in the presence of water, low temperature pumpability down to -1°C (-30°F) and superior high-temperature functionality. Importantly, it also contains ALMASOL®, LE’s exclusive wear reducing additive. The new grease has already proven itself in several extreme field tests run by LE customers – one has saved over US$40,000 in parts & labour costs due to the performance of LE 1299 ALMAPLEX® in their hammer mill.

LE 1299 ALMAPLEX® has outperformed competitive greases in various ASTM tests that have been carried out:

  • ASTM D-2596 Four Ball EP Test  73% higher extreme pressure (EP) performance
  • ASTM D-4049 Water Spray Off Test  Six times less LE 1299 was lost vs. competitor greases

This new product offers customers the potential for energy savings & reduced operating temperatures. It delivers heavy duty performance, reliability, exceptional quality & versatility – all of which will positively impact equipment uptime and the user’s bottom line profitability.

Features include: high load carrying capacity through use of proprietary extreme pressure additives, outstanding low & high temperature performance, enhanced thermal & oxidation stability for longer service life, excellent resistance to water spray off & water wash out, superior protection against wear & exceptional performance under heavy & shock loading. It also boasts a broad operating temperature range of -40°C to 232°C (-40°F to 400°F) Its’ Aluminium Complex thickener system provides grease reversibility: it reverts back to grease consistency after high temperature exposure.

LE 1299 ALMAPLEX® has numerous possible applications including, steel mill hot & heavily loaded bearings, construction, agricultural & mining equipment, wheel bearings, hammer mills, extruders, ball mill & kiln pinion support bearings, paper mill wet end, press rolls, felt rolls & calendar stack bearings.
