Explanation:
NLGI (National Lubricating Grease Institute): Institut National de Graisse Lubrifiante.


NLGI Grade Number:
Numbers assigned by the NLGI to classify greases according to their hardness as measured by a cone penetration test. The numbers range from 000 (very fluid) to #6 (solid). Only the 000 thru #2 grade are considered useable in centralized lubrication systems.

another definition of \"Worked penetration\":
Under mechanical shear, lubricating greases often change their consistency. Therefore, it is more reasonable to indicate the worked penetration. It is the consistency of a worked grease.
