JAX: Keep Machinery Running Smoothly with Low Temperature Grease & Oil

Choosing a suitable low-temperature grease or oil is crucial for those who rely on their machinery to operate in harsh conditions.

Table of Contents

JAX Low Temperature Grease

When cold weather sets in — or working environments require consistently low temperatures — the viscosity of a lubricant increases, making lubricants thicker and less able to flow. Using a lubricant that isn’t formulated for low temperatures may mean that your machinery runs into problems, such as:

  • Increased wear and tear
  • Reduced efficiency
  • Difficulties starting
  • Damage to components 
  • Loss of lubrication

Using specifically formulated cold-climate lubricants can avoid mechanical faults and production problems. JAX designed and developed a range of products for protecting your machinery from the harmful effects of cold temperatures, such as rust, corrosion, and wear. These low-temperature lubricants help to extend equipment life and save you money.

JAX is a leading provider of high-performance lubricants and fluids designed to withstand the harshest conditions. Their lubricants support various industries, including agriculture, automotive, construction, and mining.

JAX Magna-Plate 22

JAX Magna-Plate 22 is a synthetic complex calcium sulfonate soap and PAO-based grease with a proprietary blend of additives for extremely low-temperature applications. The calcium sulfonate provides exceptional mechanical stability, high load capacity, remarkable oxidation control, and a drop point of -68℃. JAX Magna-Plate 22 is pumpable at low temperatures, which makes it easy to apply and use, and its high viscosity means that the grease will not thicken significantly as the temperature drops; this is important for applications where bearings are difficult to access or ambient temperatures are low.

In addition to its low-temperature performance, JAX Magna-Plate 22 provides excellent anti-wear and corrosion protection. JAX Magna-Plate 22 helps to protect against wear and tear, extends the life of bearings, reduces friction, increases efficiency, and reduces downtime. 

JAX Magna-Plate 86

JAX Magna-Plate 86 is a 100% synthetic PAO Low Temperature Oil formulated for extreme cold environments. Magna-Plate 86 has a low pour point (the lowest temperature at which oil can flow under gravity) of -60℃, yet has sufficient body to lubricate at all temperatures. 

JAX Magna-Plate 86’s synthetic makeup makes it ideal for various applications, including food-processing freezer chains and conveyors, gearboxes, and hydraulic systems. Magna-Plate 86 features a synthetic base oil resistant to thickening at low temperatures. The oil also provides excellent anti-wear protection, protecting bearings and gears from damage caused by shock loads and high-speed operation. Alongside Magna-Plate 86’s anti-wear properties, the oil also provides superior corrosion resistance, helping to protect bearings, gears, and other components from the damaging effects of moisture. 

JAX Low Temperature Grease, Oils & Food-Grade Lubricants

Overall, the JAX Magna-Plate 86 and the JAX Magna-Plate 22 are versatile and high-performance lubricants ideal for use in various applications, including those operated in cold weather or at cold temperatures. Both products achieve: 

  • Reduced wear and tear
  • Enhanced equipment life
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced downtime

JAX products are renowned for their food-grade properties, and both JAX Magna-Plate 86 and the JAX Magna-Plate 22 have NSF H1 certification for incidental contact with food, Halal and Kosher certifications, and ISO 21469 certification
