SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease


SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease

SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease is a technologically advanced grease that is truly a multi-purpose, multi-functional lubricant. SWEPCO 121 was designed with inventory consolidation in mind and to help reduce accidental misapplication or mixing of incompatible thickener types.

Tri-Plex structure

The Aluminum Complex thickener is unique in that with our Tri-Plex structure SWEPCO 121 is more shear stable than other Aluminum Complex thickened greases. This means that SWEPCO 121 will stay in grade longer and not pound out or wear down as quickly as some competitor products. This unique formulation allows SWEPCO 121 to reconstitute into a grease after it has melted due to high temperatures that can occur in shock loads or extreme applications.  Most greases when melted form hard wax like materials or will run out of the application leaving it unprotected and open to metal to metal contact.

SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease is easy to pump and ideal for centralized or on-board systems. Especially where the grease is pumped through small orifices or piping and over long distances. Available in NLGI #2, #1 and Arctic provides for a wide temperature operating range from -34°C (-30°F) to 190° (357°F) continuous operation and up to 232°C (450°F) intermittently.

SWEPCO 121 has excellent load carrying and wear prevention properties so it will protect equipment over a wide range of applications, loads, and environments. Specialty polymers in SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease act like a rain coat to keep out water and contaminates, it will not emulsify or break down in the presence of water.

A word of caution, do not use SWEPCO 121 in applications over 8,000 RPM as it may sling off or out of the application. SWEPCO 121 Tri-Plex Universal Grease is superb in slow to moderate speeds and heavy loads.

The Red color lets you know where the grease is and when purging is complete.
