Lithium is the most common grease type used globally. It is a simple soap grease that becomes smooth textured and stable to heating. As a general-purpose/shop/industrial grease, it is used for plain/rolling-element bearings in: compressors, fans, centrifugal pumps, chassis parts, U-joints, water pumps on passenger cars, track rollers, commercial lawn mowers, underground mining machinery, crushers, vibrating screens, centralized lubrication systems.
Lithium grease can be formulated with the addition of molybdenum disulfide (Moly) to reduce metal on metal pressure.
