Sandvik introduces BIO Tool Grease for hydraulic hammers
In its aim to cultivate more environmentally friendly ways of operation, Sandvik is launching a new BIO Tool Grease that offers a greener alternative to machine unkeep. This modern, high performance biodegradable grease is the first product in our Green Range and is specially formulated to be more environmentally friendly.
Lithium complex thickened BIO Tool Grease is based on biodegradable esters and PAO and contains corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants, and bismuth technology-based EP / AW additives. The special formulation makes the grease suitable for both high and low temperature applications and provides excellent wear protection and good load carrying capacity. Moreover, its complex soap structure ensures great mechanical stability, prolonging re-lubrication intervals and enhancing performance in vibrating housing.
Being readily biodegradable, this tool grease is safe for use in underwater applications and in environmentally sensitive locations such as groundwater areas. It is also ideal when operating in urban and city sites with strict building codes.
BIO Tool Grease is supplied in three sizes: 400g, 500g and 18kg. The 500g cartridge is suitable for Ramlube II automatic tool greasing device, making it easy and quick to replace cartridges.
“When developing this new BIO Tool Grease, our two most important criteria were environmental friendliness and lubricity, and the new grease meets both of these excellently. Hammer applications place very high demands on greases, and the new grease fits perfectly into our Ramlube II automatic tool greasing system”, tells Jouni-Pekka Hiltunen, Product Line Manager at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions.
“Sandvik is committed to delivering more sustainable and productive solutions to our customers. We believe sustainability and productivity go hand in hand. As an important step on our green range journey, we are now proud to launch the BIO Tool Grease to equip our customers with the choice of going greener”, says Martin Nyström, President in Attachment Tools Division at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions.
