Grease

Mobil SHC Grease 101 EAL and 102 EAL are superior performance greases designed specifically for applications that require environmentally sensitive lubricants. These high performance greases are biodegradable and virtually non-toxic. They are formulated from a biodegradable synthetic ester base oil, carefully chosen high performance additives and a lithium soap thickener. The wax-free nature of the synthetic base fluid, together with its low traction coefficient, provide excellent low temperature pumpability and very low starting and running torque – a significant benefit considering that many environmentally sensitive applications are outdoors.

The Mobil SHC Grease 100 EAL Series is formulated for applications where grease leakage or run out could contaminate soil, groundwater, surface water systems, or indoor plant water systems. They are recommended for plain and rolling element bearings and couplings that operate at temperatures from -40ºC to 120ºC, with appropriate adjustments to re-lubrication interval. Mobil SHC Grease 101 EAL and 102 EAL are NLGI grade 1 and 2 respectively.

Features and Potential Benefits

The Mobil EAL brand of environmentally sensitive products has gained an exceptional reputation with OEMs and customers for its excellent performance. These greases provide the optimum balance between the need for environmentally friendly lubricants and the requirement for high performance lubricants for mobile and stationary mechanical equipment Mobil SHC Grease 100 EAL Series greases are compatible with the previous generation Mobilgrease EAL 100 Series.

Mobil SHC Grease 101 EAL and 102 EAL offer the following benefits:

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Virtually non-toxic in the OECD 203 Method Aquatic Toxicity Test Minimal effects of spills on environment
Formulated from biodegradable synthetic ester base oil  Biodegradation of material in sensitive areas with minimal non-biodegradable residue, avoidance of costly clean-up in some jurisdictions
Good adhesion and water resistance  Resists water washout, avoiding need for frequent re-greasing 
Excellent rust and corrosion protection Excellent bearing protection in wet conditions, with long bearing life
