At IMTS, I learned about an organic-urea-based (yes, urea) hybrid lubricant that takes advantage of oil’s liquid nature and grease’s adhesive characteristics. LHL (Lube Hybrid Lubrication) is available in the United States through Lube USA and is said to offer a number of advantages. It uses just a fraction of the lubricant quantity compared to conventional oil lubrications systems. The company says lower lubricant requirement can significantly reduce machine maintenance costs while minimizing the chance that lubricant will enter a machine’s coolant tank causing coolant deterioration and/or decomposition. Plus, the LHL hybrid grease doesn’t emulsify and is packaged in convenient cartridges that are simple to replace. Maintenance made easier.
