Usage Instructions

  1. Clean or replace bearings. Before applying FAHRENHEITTM Bearing Gel lubricant, thoroughly clean the bearings to remove traces of used conventional greases, to avoid any compatibility problems. Even new bearings should be cleaned of any slush, oils or lubricants and the cleaning solvents allowed to completely evaporate before applying FAHRENHEITTM Bearing Gel.
  2. Do not overfill bearing. Pack rolling elements as with conventional greases but fill only to about one-third full. Overfilling can cause failure due to over-heating and wear.
  3. Allow machinery to run to operating temperature. FAHRENHEITTM Bearing Gel will remain a clean translucent amber to 250ºF (121ºC), above which it changes to a light brown color and develops a sticky consistency ensuring it would not melt, drip or run out, under conditions of high temperature, high shear or high loading.
  4. To top up, simply add. Because FAHRENHEITTM Bearing Gel delivers extended service life (up to 10 times longer than conventional greases), adjust lubrication schedule to benefit from this important product feature.
  5. Use recommended NLGI viscosity grade. NLGI viscosity grade numbers 1 and 2 are standard; other viscosity grades are available on special orders. For use through automated lubrication systems, use NLGI No. 1. Consult Kem-A-TrixTM or distributor.
