Low Temperature Effects on Grease

Low-temperature effects: If the temperature of a grease is lowered enough, it will become so viscous that it can be classified as a hard grease. Pumpability suffers and machinery operation may become impossible due to torque limitations and power requirements. The temperature at which this occurs depends on the shape of the lubricated part and the power being supplied to it. As a guideline, the base oils pour point is considered the low-temperature limit of a grease.
