Aviation has seen huge change over the last 30 years. Aircraft are larger and capable of carrying heavier loads than ever before, putting more pressure on wheel bearings in the process. AeroShell have developed AeroShell Grease 58 – an enhanced load carrying capacity grease that exhibits superior protection against water and corrosive fluids, keeping wheel bearings protected for longer and repair costs lower.
Enhanced Load Carrying Capacity
The second the wheels touch the runway, the combined weight of the aircraft and external forces are all resting on the steel bearings that support the wheels. AeroShell Grease 58 exhibits almost 60% more load carrying capacity through remaining in contact with the bearing rollers and track. This results in better load wear protection when compared with MIL-PRF-81322G greases under ASTM D2596 tests.
