Presentations for 72nd Annual Meeting: Soybean oil-based solid stick lubricant
Solid Stick Lubricants provide an efficient method of lubrication for moving components, including the flanged wheels of railroad locomotives. The majority of solid lubricants are made by combining a rigid polymer with the chosen type of lubricant, including, but not limited to, molybdenum, graphite, Teflon, or some other lubricating substance. The rigid-body lubricants are made by combining a commercial soybean oil-based rail curve grease and a solid form structure composed of other materials. The development, testing, and subsequent approval of soy-based lubricants for use by railroads are presented.
