Molykote Circuit Breaker Lubrication Guide - Project Sales Corp

  1. 1. There’s a lot on the line. We’ll help keep things moving. In regular service, a circuit breaker is typically • Molykote® 1292 Long Life Bearing Grease static. But it is essential that components move is a fluorosilicone grease used for metal/ smoothly when they need to. Because circuit metal combinations with slow to medium- breakers are subjected to temperature extremes, fast movements and medium loads. It is moisture, environmental contaminants and also used to lubricate flange gaskets in SF6 debris over long periods of time between breakers. Molykote® 1292 grease has an maintenance, many lubricants harden, break extremely low tendency toward oxidation down or dry out, often leading to circuit and a high resistance to water and water breaker failure. washout. It is resistant to mineral oil, fuels Molykote® and Dow Corning® brand lubricants and many chemicals. can provide proven long-term, reliable • Molykote® 33 Extreme Low Temperature lubrication over a wide service temperature Bearing Grease delivers exceptional range and in a variety of environments. performance in cold environments. It Fluorosilicones in particular resist solvents lubricates trip latch and coil bearings, such as penetrating oil, and they do not dry out antifriction bearings, and plastic and and harden, even after many years of exposure rubber parts under light to moderate loads. to the elements and static conditions. Molykote® 33 grease is resistant to oxidation Formulated to address specific requirements, and moisture, and it is compatible with manyAV06417 Molykote® and Dow Corning® lubricants can plastics and elastomers. help reduce seizure and increase circuit breaker • Molykote® G-n Metal Assembly Paste is a performance and reliability. They may allow low-friction lubricant that provides excellent extended maintenance intervals and reduced protection against fretting wear and lifecycle cost. The lubricants may also generate corrosion in sliding friction applications. It increased customer satisfaction by reducing helps prevent seizure from fretting, galling equipment failures. and cold welding, extending service life on • Molykote® 3451 Chemical Resistant surfaces subjected to extreme pressures. Bearing Grease provides exceptional • Molykote® 1000 Solid Lubricant Paste is lubrication on needle bearings in circuit particularly useful for bolted metal joints, breakers. This fluorosilicone grease provides enabling non-destructive dismantling, even superior resistance to most chemicals and after long use at high temperatures. It offers can be used at high temperatures, and with good corrosion protection over a wide range heavy loads. Molykote® 3451 grease also of temperatures and at high loads. resists washout by water, fuels, oils and solvents. It is compatible with most gaskets, seals and packings, including silicone O-rings.
