Non-Melt, Non-Drip Grease


Non-melt grease popularly known as Non – drip grease is a high – performance lubricant that helps in reducing maintenance downtime and increased re – lubrication interval. It performs satisfactorily at elevated temperatures and is generally oxidation resistant.

Let’s understand more in details about the grease and understand how it acquired its property

What do you think non-melt grease is and how it acquired its property?

Non-melt grease is a grease with a none drop point. The grease acquires this property from its thickener. Some thickeners are non – melting and withstand temp that is hotter than what conventional greases can handle. Inorganic thickeners have none drop pint and perform well at elevated temperature range. Popular inorganic thickeners are: Silica, Organoclay, Carbon black etc.

Pros of using non- melt grease:

  • High – performance Lubricant
  • Performs well at elevated temperatures subject to the suitability of base oil
  • Good oxidation stability at high temperatures
  • Performs well at adverse conditions

Challenges faced by non – melt grease are the same as that of other greases i.e. Caking of grease, Oil running out of grease, Compatibility issues, Pumpability, etc. However, caking of grease at high temperature remains the most common cause of concern while using a non – melt grease with a base oil that is not suitable for such high temepraturs.

Some interesting facts of non- melt grease:

– Non – melt greases are suitable for the high-temperature application, but one should keep in mind that thickener used is non – melt but additives and base oil have upper operational temperature limit.
– Non – melt grease also has the potential for thickening at lower temperatures. During the selection of lubricant, one should not only consider the heat to which grease would be subjected but also the overall temperature range.
– It is also important to check the grease compatibility. One must know which grease is applied before and if it is the correct one. Cross-contamination is a major problem in grease.
– While considering a non- melt grease for higher temperatures one should consider other parameters like the base oil being used otherwise oil burning can occur which can result in thickener residue.
– Over greasing is always a common challenge with greasing, especially for non- melt grease one considers the considerate and calculated qty of grease for filling and relubrication.

Application of Non–melt grease:

Non – melt greases is optimum solution for application under category of-
