Abstract : The dispersion media were napthenic aromatic and paraffinic spindle oils, the same oils dearomatized with oleum, and high viscosity naphthenic paraffinic oils, using 9 percent lithium soaps of narrow SFA fractions as thickening agents. A satisfactory grease was obtained with naphthenic paraffinic spindle oil only when the latter was thickened with soap of given fatty acids. The soaps of all acid fractions had low thickening effects in high viscosity oils. Adequate lithium greases were obtained when aromatized oils or distillates were thickened with the narrow fraction of fatty acid which had the optimum thickening effect. (Author)
