Named the “1999 Product of the Year” by Plant Engineering, TRC’s Paragon 3000 was introduced as the grease for the new millennium. It has proven to be the ultimate in equipment protection and cost efficiency – – exactly what is needed in this generation. There truly is no other grease like it in quality or performance. So unique, Paragon 3000 is only available from Texas Refinery Corp.
Offers Outstanding Extreme Pressure Protection
PARAGON® 3000 offers tremendous anti-wear protection. PARAGON® 3000 passes a full 100 lb. Timken OK test. Equipment subjected to heavy load and shock loading function at peak efficiency. Unlike many High Timken Value greases, this product offers superior protection throughout the entire range of load. Often special greases manufactured to offer protection under incredibly high loads do not protect from wear when loads are more normal. PARAGON® 3000 offers exceptional anti-wear protection – – regardless of the load – – including a 100 lb. Timken OK load.
A Very Stable Grease With A Long Working Life
PARAGON® 3000 is an extremely stable grease. This is an indication of its long life in actual working conditions. Many greases change significantly in consistency when in actual operation, often thinning considerably or thickening. PARAGON® 3000 shows very little change in its worked penetration from the 60 round-trip strokes compared to the 10,000 round-trip strokes in a standard grease worker. Even more significant, PARAGON® 3000 changes little even in the 100,000 double stroke test. After 100,000 strokes PARAGON® 3000 changes from a penetration of 280 to 274 in its consistency. Most greases in the 100,000 double stroke test change considerably in their consistency. Some of them become too soft, allowing leakage away from the area where the grease is needed. Other greases become too hard, indicating they may not feed adequately into areas to be lubricated. PARAGON® 3000 is extraordinarily constant and stable, thus providing the ultimate in protection.
Highly Water Resistant
Texas Refinery Corp’s PARAGON® 3000 is resistant to moisture. This grease can be used in areas where ordinary greases would simply be washed away. PARAGON® 3000 resists being washed off by water and, in fact, displaces water on metal surfaces, keeping those surfaces free from rusting, pitting and corrosion. Extreme pressure protection (100 lb. Timken OK Load), is retained even in the presence of 20% water. This is remarkable for any lubricant – – but not for PARAGON® 3000. This extreme water resistance provides the answer to many current industrial equipment problems. One example where PARAGON® 3000 could be used is in paper mills where heat, water and extreme conditions are present. The more conditions are extreme, the greater PARAGON® 3000 performs.
Handles Impact And Prevents Wear
PARAGON® 3000 contains specially developed high impact resistant supplements. These supplements enable PARAGON® 3000 to resist severe and continuous impact. This characteristic enables this grease to prevent wear, ensure longer service life and provide a new dimension in downtime protection. PARAGON® 3000 resists squeezing out and thinning under severe loads, thereby preventing metal to metal contact. The adhesive and cohesive characteristics make this grease suited for many demanding jobs. The adhesive characteristics also help develop a dust shield to prevent contaminates from getting into bearings.
A Unique Grease For Many Different Applications
PARAGON® 3000 is the only grease made using a unique combination of thickeners and additives. PARAGON® 3000 is ideal for a wide range of applications covering heat, moisture, load, impact and stability questions. It is a true multi-purpose product.
Has A Wide Operating Temperature Range
PARAGON® 3000 offers extreme temperature protection. Most greases have dropping points between 290 and 390 degrees F. PARAGON® 3000 has a dropping point of 630 degrees F.
PARAGON® 3000 offers protection at high temperatures when others can not. PARAGON®3000 has an extra margin of safety for those hot spots. This grease will not melt below 630 degrees F. PARAGON® 3000 is a special high temperature grease which does not cakeup in lines or bearings. Naturally, at temperatures above 450 degrees F. to 570 degrees F. you must lubricate more frequently.
