Bel-Ray has released Molylube Ultra, its highest performing open-gear lubricant. According to the company, Molylube Ultra performs the work of three different products with its ability to be used for priming, running-in, and service lubrication of draglines, shovels and a number of other mining and heavy industrial applications.

Molylube Ultra is specially formulated with a high-viscosity, semisynthetic, paraffinic base oil, polymers, molybdenum disulfide, and graphite lubricating solids to help maximize component life and minimize equipment downtime and repair. Operating costs are also further reduced as mining operations only need to maintain inventory of one open-gear lubricant, rather than three separate products. It is designed for use in a wide range of environments and conditions, and is available in four grades—arctic, light, medium and heavy—offering protection in ambient temperatures ranging from –40°
to 50°C (–58° to 122°F). Molylube Ultra open-gear lubricants are currently available in South America and will be available worldwide beginning in January 2015.
