Gear Oils

Lubrication Engineers manufactures a full line of open and enclosed gear lubricants using 100% highly refined paraffinic base oils or 100% synthetic base products for all gear box applications as listed below:

  • Automotive
  • Food Grade
  • Industrial
  • Open Gear
  • Worm Gear

Lubrication Enginers' quality and durability in high performance gear lubes will mean greater productivity and lower maintenance costs for customers through extended equipment life, less downtime and fewer repairs.

Benefits

  • Exceptional wear protection - unsurpassed protection
  • Reduced operating temperatures
  • Waterproof oils for total water seperation

 

 

  • Superior oxidation resistance provides long drain performance
  • Non-foaming characteristics
  • Long service life
  • Versatility

Three essential attributes when selecting gear oil

Gear oil is made up of two critical components: base oil and additives. Additives impart desirable properties and suppress undesirable ones. The additive package is the backbone of the lubricant’s performance, and a strong backbone will provide the performance and protection you need. When selecting gear oil, there are three essential attributes to consider:


One - The gear oil must remain thermally stable and not oxidize at high temperatures, thus avoiding the creation of sludge or varnish. Keeping the oil from oxidizing will lengthen drain and replacement intervals. As a general rule of thumb, for every 18 degrees F (10 degrees C) increase in fluid temperature above 140°F (60°C), oxidation will reduce the service life of a lubricant by half.

Two – If you have an enclosed gearbox application that is heavily loaded or subject to shock loading, you need gear oil with extreme pressure properties. Gear oil with an EP additive will protect the gear surfaces against extreme pressures.

Three – Gear oil must fight contamination that enters the system, especially water. The oil must be able to demulsify, which allows for easy removal of the water from the gearbox.
