Sprinkler Lube 1200

The Protection You Need, For The Results You Want

Sprinkler Lube 1200 is designed for use in the gear boxes of center pivot irrigation systems. This semi-fluid grease which is between a 00 and a 000 grade has some special properties. It carries heavy loads and shock loads. At the same time, Sprinkler Lube 1200 passed the copper corrosion test with a 1b, showing that it will not attack any yellow metals such as copper or brass. Formulated as a thixotropic grease, it thins down in a gearbox, but when left idle thickens back to a penetration of 415. This allows Sprinkler Lube 1200 to have good flow back and heat transfer around bearings and gears while remaining thicker at the outer areas of the gearbox to help with sealing, keeping moisture out and lubricant in.

Sprinkler Lube 1200 Provides:

  • Superior Anti-Wear Protection
  • Excellent Extreme Pressure Protection
  • Protection Against Gear Scoring
  • Superior Rust and Corrosion Protection
  • Less Seal Leakage
  • Water Resistance
  • Less Downtime
  • Longer Seal Life
  • Longer Gearbox Life
  • Longer Lubricant Life
  • Features Benefits
    Rust, Oxidation, and Corrosion Inhibitors Assures maximum protection against corrosion of metal parts. Keeps lubricant in good condition for extended service intervals.
    Copper Corrosion Test Pass, 1b High pass, will not attack or corrode copper or brass in gearbox, leaving it looking like new.
    Superior Anti-Wear and Extreme Pressure Agents Protect against metal-to-metal contact and wear under excessive pressure or shock loads increasing gear and bearing life.
    Meets and Exceeds GL5 Loads Meets and exceeds manufacturers warranty requirements.
    Adhesive/Cohesive Additives Makes this product extremely sticky, allowing it to form a grease seal on worn shafts keeping grease in and water out. Keeps lubricant on metal parts not allowing dry starts or moisture contact.
    Water Resistant Protects against oil film displacement with water and lubricant breakdown due to moisture contamination.
    Semi-Fluid Helps keep product from running out of gearbox and water from getting in.
    Thixotropic Thins down when worked and thickens up after sitting, preventing channeling and allowing good flow back and heat transfer around bearings and gears. At the same time, it remains thicker at the outer areas of the gearbox to help with sealing, again to keep moisture out and lubricant in.

    You will notice that Sprinkler Lube 1200 is designed to keep the lubricant in and moisture out of a gearbox with its adhesive/cohesive additive system, by being a semi-fluid, and by being thixotropic. You may have noticed that it is designed to protect your gearboxes if moisture does get in by its water resistance, its adhesive/cohesive additive system, and its rust, oxidation, and corrosion system.

    Keeping the moisture out is the best alternative. If water does enter the gearbox, rest assured that the gearbox will be best protected with Sprinkler Lube 1200.

    Less downtime and the cost associated with it such as loss of yeild, extended gearbox life, and extended lubricant life makes Sprinkler Lube 1200 a very cost affective product of choice.
