PhyMet has introduced this product, developed by its scientists, that extends the useful temperature range compared to standard MicroPoly® systems. This new MicroPoly composition can withstand temperatures up to 350°F.
MPI-2000 filled bearings can be used in non-wash down conditions at temperatures ranging from –10°F to 350°F. It contains corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidants, E. P. (Extreme Pressure) additives, and wear/friction reducing additives. This high temperature product can be easily identified by its red color.
MPI-2400 filled bearings can be used in wash down conditions at temperatures ranging from –15°F to 350°F. It contains corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidants, E. P. (Extreme Pressure) additives and wear/friction reducing additives, and has better wash down capabilities than MPI-2000. This high temperature product is off-white.
The limiting speeds for MPI-2000 and MPI-2400 at ambient temperatures can be calculated using the Ndm values on page 4. As with our standard products, the maximum allowable speed will decrease as the operating temperature increases. However, the effective temperature range of these products is extended (350°F) compared to our standard products (200-225°F). Call our Customer Service or Engineering Department if speed at high temperature is a concern.
