Phillips 66® Trolley Wire Lube is a semi-fluid lithium grease specifically developed for the lubrication of mine trolley wires and shoes. With proper maintenance and frequent re-lubrication, it extends the life of the wires and sliders while keeping downtime and operating expenses to a minimum.
Trolley Wire Lube is manufactured with high-quality paraffinic base oils thickened with a lithium 12-hydroxystearate soap. It is fortified with 10% graphite to reduce friction between the slider and cable helping to extend the life of the cable.
Trolley Wire Lube can be applied by a trolley wire brush applicator box, or it can be pumped to the wire by a direct grease line through a centralized grease system. Its special friction reducing properties allow for less frequent application than many other trolley wire lubricants.
