ROCOL aims to take the load out of maintenance

07 September 2020

INDUSTRIAL LUBRICANTS specialist, ROCOL has launched a new heavy duty grease to support crane boom maintenance regimes.

Tuflube Extreme is a heavy duty, versatile and highly adhesive grease formulated to protect and lubricate crane telescopic booms and open gears, even in the wettest and most corrosive conditions. Developed in response to customer and industry feedback, it operates across a wide temperature range (-50 to +160°C ) and its white colour helps make safety inspections easier.

The high-performance grease offers mechanical and chemical protection against pitting and corrosion and a tough, tenacious, self-repairing film that is suitable for sliding surfaces such as telescopic crane boom arms and open gears. Additional benefits include a high load carrying capacity and protection against metal wear.

David Westwood, engineering manager at ROCOL, comments: “We are always looking at developing our product range in response to market needs and working closely with end users allows us to respond quickly. The new Tuflube Extreme grease is a great example of this approach to product evolution.

“Its ability to operate across wider temperature ranges makes it ideal for onshore and offshore applications in locations ranging from the high northern hemisphere to Middle Eastern climates.”  

Extremely resistant to water wash off, the new Tuflube Extreme is a versatile product that is suitable for use within crane maintenance regimes.

Tuflube Extreme forms part of the ROCOL Tuflube and Tufgear range, a collection of products designed specifically to deliver high performance in arduous, heavy industrial applications. As such this range provides a complete package for crane lubrication amongst many other similar type environments. The full range comprises Tuflube Extreme, Biogen Tuflube, Tuflube Allweather, Tufgear Universal, Tufgear 100 and Tufgear Spray.
