MỠ Spheerol SY
Multi-purpose high performance grease
The Castrol Spheerol™ SY series are super premium extreme pressure (EP) greases primarily intended for a
wide variety of applications at extremes of temperature. They combine the unique features of a synthetic base
fluid with those of a lithium complex thickener. The wax-free nature of the synthetic base oil and the low coefficient
of traction (compared with mineral oils), provide excellent low temperature pumpability and very low starting and
running torque. They offer the potential for energy savings and can reduce operating temperatures in the load
zone of rolling element bearings. The lithium complex thickener gives excellent adhesion, structural stability and
water resistance. The greases have a high level of chemical stability and provide excellent protection against
wear, rust and corrosion; at high and low temperatures.
Spheerol SY series do not contain – lead, chlorine or nitrites.
Spheerol SY 1501 is an NLGI 1 grade grease with an exceptionally high ISO VG 1500 synthetic base fluid. It is
intended for use in plain and rolling element bearings operating at extremely slow speeds, under heavy loads and
high temperatures. Spheerol SY 1501 has a recommended operating temperature range of -20°C to 180°C with
appropriate re-lubrication intervals.
Spheerol SY 2202 is a multi-purpose, extreme pressure grease recommended for heavy duty automotive and
industrial applications. It uses an ISO VG 220 synthetic fluid and although it is a NLGI 2 grade product, it has
excellent low temperature pumpability and a recommended operating temperature range of -40°C to 180°C.
Spheerol SY 4601 is recommended for tough industrial applications. It gives outstanding bearing protection under
high loads at low to moderate speeds and in applications where water resistance is critical. Spheerol SY 4601 is
recommended for use in steel and paper mills. Recommended operating temperature range is -40°C to 180°C.
Spheerol SY 4600 is formulated from an ISO VG 460 synthetic base fluid to an NLGI grade 00 consistency.
Recommended operating temperature range is -40°C to 180°C. It’s primary use is in grease filled gear cases
subject to high temperatures, where conventional semi-fluid greases deteriorate rapidly. It is also suited for sealed
heavy-duty truck wheel bearings.
Spheerol SY series offer the following benefits:
• Reduced downtime and maintenance costs because of reduced wear, rust and corrosion
• Outstanding high and low temperature performance
• Extended service life with longer intervals between re-lubrication
• Reduced energy consumption due to low traction coefficient
• Ability to perform well in the presence of water

In order to minimise potential incompatibilities when converting to a new grease, all previous lubricant should be
removed as much as possible prior to operation. During initial operation, re-lubrication intervals should be
monitored closely to ensure all previous lubricant is purged.
