Gearbox lubricant helps combat water ingress
1st Quarter 2019, Other technologies


Food and beverage, pharmaceutical and other clean environments require NSF H1-grade lubricants for hygiene, health and safety purposes. Rocol Rapid Demulse 220 from leading supplier Bearings International (BI) is ideal for such demanding applications. This is a non-toxic, high performance gearbox lubricant designed especially for applications where water ingress is an issue. It splits rapidly from the water, which can then be drained from the gearbox periodically, allowing the oil to continue lubricating. Hence service life between oil changes is extended rapidly. Conventional oils tend to emulsify into a creamy, frothy mix that does not lubricate effectively.

Rocol Rapid Demulse allows for rapid water demulsification under conditions of high load and elevated temperature. It also allows for quick water drainage to reduce downtime, and has good wear protection properties to boot. It can be used in a wide temperature range from –5 to 130°C, and is NSF H1 registered for use where incidental contact with foodstuffs may occur, as well as ISO 21469 certified.

Rocol key accounts manager, Richard Daley says that Rapid Demulse 220 will continue gaining traction in the South African market. In one of the first large-scale applications of the product locally, it has been slashing downtime on a client’s gearboxes since July 2017.

“The challenge of water ingress into gearboxes is a problem that many plants and industries have to contend with. Increasingly stringent requirements are focusing on food-safe lubricants with regard to cross-contamination regulations and we are able to provide an ideal solution for the food and beverage industry,” concludes Daley.
