Viscosity Index of Grease Used in Pre-Greased Trailer Idler Hub

Question:

Hello, I am a student with University of Wisconsin Stout, and I am looking to use one of your bearings on a gyroscope project. I was wondering what specific grease is used in this hub or what viscosity index the grease has so I can test your bearing in my assembly. I have the desired hub listed below. Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 - L44649 Bearings - Pre-Greased I look forward to your response Thank you!

The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 - L44649 Bearings - Pre-Greased # AKIHUB-440-2-2K uses a lithium complex grease that has a viscosity rating of 2. This viscosity (thickness) rating is the standard used for trailer hub and drum bearing grease.

I have added a link to a video review of this hub, our selection of grease, as well as a help article on trailer grease for you to take a look at.
