Excellent lubricity characteristics imparted by the additive package helps minimize friction to help prevent premature bearing failure.
Good rust protection — Effective inhibitor package helps prevent rusting of surfaces exposed to water.
Water separability — Journaltex HD 57 separates readily from water.
Good shear stability
Excellent air release by foam inhibitor helps hasten the release of foam and entrained air.
Journaltex HD 57 is manufactured from high viscosity index, low pour point base oils for use on suspension bearings. It contains an additive package that helps resist rust and corrosion and helps protect journal bearings during the critic al break-in period by minimizing friction in heavily loaded bearings
Journaltex HD 57 is designed to lubricate locomotive traction motor suspension bearings and plain railcar journal bearings. It is also recommended for lubricating tractor motor suspension bearings, truck center plates, plain journal bearing waste saturation and pad lubrication or free oiling.
