Grease
« on: May 24, 2014, 07:55:20 AM »
Does anyone know the trade name of the non-petroleum grease RCM uses on their Hibankers, my spraybar and water connection are bound up tighter than yu know what! Or could someone offer up an alternate choice? We all know what oil does!!

You might be thinking of a product called "Swack", used for aluminum conduit/fittings connections, should be available at an oilfield supply store. Hope that helps, You still didn't answer my question about Littleport? Good luck.

I use a spray wax product from Lee Valley for my woodworking equipment where you don't want grease or oils. It's a spray can with basically alcohol and paraffin wax. Seems to work well for me on fittings and stuff around pumps. Also use beeswax for threads etc.
cheers

Tried that SWACK, not good for our applications, its gritty, TOO sticky and seems to set up too hard after about 24 hrs. Also, the price for a small tube would make a nice downpayment on a new Buick! I'll definitely check out Lee Valley next trip to the Big Smoke. Thanx Grizman .
