OCG™ – protection grease for overhead line conductors

Metalube Logo

A comprehensive range of cold applied greases for protection of overhead line conductors. The range is fully compliant with all the latest international standards and specifications and offers excellent protection against fretting, multimetal corrosion and high temperature oxidation. The range exhibits exceptionally low oil bleed characteristics and unrivalled high drop point ensuring migration from the conductor is prevented.

Features and benefits

  • Absolute minimal oil bleed at operational line and post fault temperature.
  • Optimum levels of anti-corrosion performance to ensure complete protection of the conductor in all environments particularly:
    • coastal regions.
    • areas of high industrial pollution.
  • Bespoke range to cover the operational line temperatures from ambient to 210°C.
  • Highly specialised synthetic grease to withstand high temperature operations.
  • Low temperature stability is controlled down to -50°C.
  • Fully reversible and effective over the designated temperature rating.
  • The structure and consistency of OCG has been optimised for ease of application and current working practices.

The OCG™ Range

OCG™ 750

Designed to meet the demands of markets where cost is the predominant factor. This product uses a non- melting thickener system that results in a drop point above 230°C, with much less oil separation than traditional lithium based greases.

OCG™ 1000

Utilises a non-melting thickener system that results in a grease with a drop point over 250°C and extremely low oil separation at operating temperatures from –40°C up to 80°C. OCG 1000 is approved to international standards as a cost effective alternative to hot melt grease in standard phase conductors, OPGW and earthwires. OCG 1000 meets the requirements of EN 50326:2002 with the designation 20A80.

OCG™ 4500

Utilises a non-melting thickener system that results in a grease with a drop point over 250°C and extremely low oil separation at operating temperatures from –40°C up to 125°C. It also has outstanding corrosion protection characteristics. OCG 4500 meets the requirements of the European conductor grease standard EN 50326:2002 with the designation 40A125.

OCG™ 5000

Utilises a non-melting thickener system that results in a grease with a drop point over 250°C and extremely low oil separation at operating temperatures from –40°C up to 150°C. It also has outstanding corrosion protection characteristics. OCG 5000 is approved by UK National Grid to NGTS 3.4.2 and NGTS 3.4.12 and meets the requirements of the European conductor grease standard EN 50326:2002 with the designation 20A150.

OCG™ 6000

Is an advanced, fully synthetic grease specifically developed for the protection of high temperature, low sag 'GAP' (GTACSR and GZTACSR) overhead conductors. The unique combination of additives and base fluids delivers extreme thermal stability.

OCG 6000 utilises a non-melting thickener system that results in a grease with a drop point over 300°C and extremely low oil separation at operating temperatures from –40°C up to 210°C. OCG 6000 is approved by National Grid to NGTS 3.4.2 and NGTS 3.4.13 and meets the requirements of the European conductor grease standard EN 50326:2002 with the designation 20A210.
