In common with other SHEARMASTER products, VITROLIS SHEARLUBE 722X is a sophisticated formulation which is water emulsifiable and is classified under current regulations as non-toxic and is fully biodegradable. The lubricant has been specifically designed to work at extremely high dilution rates, starting at 800:1 up to 1500:1, yet still maintaining outstanding blade life and quality of shear cut.
Due to the excellent biodegradability and emulsion characteristics of the product it is particularly suited to a direct dosing system where the lubricant is injected into the water phase just prior to the shear head. It can also be used in older type re-circulating systems although it is strongly recommended that the holding tank for the emulsion is fitted with mechanical agitation.
For optimum lubricant performance softened water is recommended for preparation of the emulsion. However, the product is formulated on vegetable oil derived feed stocks and relatively inert emulsifiers/anticorrosive additives to give high tolerance to hard water salts and improved thermal stability.
