Lubricating Grease Testing

Alcor Petrolab and Phoenix Chemical Laboratory perform a wide range of testing on lubricating grease according to a variety of different test methods. Our customers include lubricant manufacturers, aircraft manufacturers, and industrial plants.

Lubricating grease is frequently used to lubricate bearings that cannot be reached easily or where a lubricating oil would not stay in position. Lubricating greases can also act as a sealant to keep water and particulates out that might cause corrosion.

Lubricating greases come in a wide range of viscosities (called NLGI grades) and chemistries designed for different applications. Depending on the grease materials and additives, lubricating greases can be classed as water-resistant grease, low-temperature grease, gear grease, anti-corrosion grease, and extreme pressure grease (designed for lubrication under heavy loads). Some greases are designated as ‘food-grade’ which means that they are safe to be used on equipment that comes in contact with food. We perform testing on all types of lubricating greases according to a wide variety of grease specifications.

We are constantly expanding our testing capabilities, so please contact us to see if we can perform the testing you're looking for. To learn more about one of these tests, click on the test method number below.
