Galena Moly EP

Premium Quality Rail Curve Lubricant

Galena Moly EP grease is recommended for use as a rail curve lubricant, particularly in applications where high traffic density, heavy trains and long curves make conventional greases inadequate.

Galena Moly EP grease is formulated with a calcium soap grease containing a low viscosity oil. This naturally low pour point oil was selected to provide satisfactory performance and pumpability for Canadian weather conditions throughout the year. In addition to synthetic graphite, it contains molybdenum disulphide, a solid lubricant for improved load-carrying characteristics. It also contains an effective antiwear additive which provides the high level of extreme pressure properties shown by the typical Timken Test OK load of 20 kg. It resists water washout and has the excellent carry and spread characteristics needed for long curves.
