How to lubricate telescopic cranes with Molykote® greases?

Lubrication of telescopic cranes with Molykote®.


Specialist transport hire companies are looking for durable and resistant greasing solutions to the problem of grease migration on telescopic crane booms. This problem is common in sectors such as public works, the wind industry, the marine and shipbuilding industries, etc.

The migration of grease on the telescopic boom of cranes poses an ecological and environmental safety problem as the grease falls to the ground. This leads to increased relubrication frequencies, which increases costs and, in addition, gives the company a bad image.

The key to the effectiveness of this range is the adhesion enhancing additive that these greases have. We can cover all customer needs with this range, which has both white and black greases.
