Bearing reliability can be greatly improved by using the correct grease, applied in the correct time and amount.
Chesterton's QBT (Quiet Bearing Technology)
Chesterton's QBT greases are formulated using a surplus of Lubricity, Extreme Pressure (EP) and Anti-Wear additives, blended into a highly refined base oil, and thickened with a metallic organo-sulfonate complex. The resulting greases are "Best in Class" with respect to EP, Lubricity, Corrosion & Water Resistance.
Unlike conventional Aluminum, Calcium, & Lithium thickened greases, QBT™ greases are immune to hydrolysis or water breakdown. The grease remains functional even when contaminated with up to 50% water contamination.
Chesterton's grease family, with QBT uses state of the art technology to reduce vibration and ultra-sonic bearing noise. Proprietary polar and non-polar additives and thickener chemically fuse to the metal surfaces filling in asperities to form a "wear shield" on the metal surfaces reducing wear and vibration. Micro porosity is "filled in" and reactive Fe ions are inhibited. This molecular surface chemistry passivates the steel resulting in exceptional protection against most forms of bearing corrosion.
