Open Gear Lubricants

Large open gears tend to have extreme operating conditions all day, every day. These include extended service operation, high levels of contamination, and outdoor environments. LE’s Pyroshield® line of heavy-duty open gear lubricants are designed to protect the valuable open gears of ball mills, rod mills or breaker mills. Pyroshield® is the open gear lubricant solution for extending the life of these gears, lowering lubricant consumption, and reducing overall maintenance costs.

Pyroshield® meets or exceeds all relevant manufacturer specifications for open gears and is used in a variety of open gears all over the world, including in cement mills and kilns, metal and mineral mining operations, and coal power generation facilities.

Pyroshield’s® ability to protect open gears from extreme pressures, heavy loads and high temperatures is unparalleled. It appears translucent during use, meaning that open gears can be visually inspected with the use of a strobe light. Due to its tackiness, Pyroshield® clings tenaciously to the gear.

After years of proven performance with its Pyroshield® lubricants, LE improved the formula even further by removing all heavy metals and lead. LE also increased the film strength of the lubricants, making them easier to pump through automatic lubrication systems, and raised the viscosity index of the lubricants, removing temperature-based fluctuations.

Apply manually or with automatic lubrication systems

Pyroshield® can be applied manually or through automatic spray systems. When Pyroshield® is used in an automatic lubrication system, it will not clog the lube system and there are no solids to block or abrade measuring valves. Pyroshield® will not accumulate on nozzles, or clog and interfere with the spraying process.

No shutdown during conversion process

The Pyroshield open gear conversion process is seamless; it does not require that the equipment be shut down. LE’s expert lubricant consultants work with their customers during the conversion process to ensure success.

LE can provide lubricant and reliability recommendations for various open gear applications, and product-specific data to confirm decisions.

 

 

                                  

   Pyroshield 5100-5180-5181-5182

  • Pyroshield Syn Open Gear Grease is a heavy-duty synthetic lubricant developed for large unshrouded open gears in the mining, mineral processing and cement industries, and for other severe service applications that require a lubricant with superior wear protection, exceptional load-carrying ability, outstanding tackiness and ease of application at various temperatures. It also works well for applications in which gears experience high point-of-contact temperatures of 327ºC (620ºF) and above.

    A product of advanced lubricant technology providing boundary lubrication, unmatched performance and versatility, Pyroshield Syn Open Gear Grease is formulated with high-viscosity 100 percent synthetic base oil, a non-melting thickening system and LE's proprietary heat stable additives. It contains a synergistic mix of Almasol®, LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive, and a unique combination of extreme pressure additives.

  • Available in Aerosol, Tubes, 2.5kg, and 20kg pail.

 

  Pyroshield® Syn Heavy & Extra Heavy Duty 9000 - 9011 (2 Grades)

  • Heavy-Metal-Free Synthetic Oil Provides Extreme Protection

  • Pyroshield® Syn Hvy & XHvy Open Gear Lubricants are heavy-duty synthetic fluids designed to provide outstanding protection for high-load, heavy-shock applications, such as large shrouded open gears used in the mining, mineral processing and cement industries. Pyroshield® Syn Open Gear Lubricants are non-asphaltic and environmentally friendly, containing no heavy metals. Each lubricant features a synergistic mix of Almasol®, LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive, and a unique combination of extreme pressure additives.

  • LE Offers Pyroshield's Advanced Technology as Solution for Large Shrouded Open Gears

  • Lubrication Engineers developed Pyroshield® Syn Hvy and XHvy Open Gear Lubricants to meet the specific requirements for the lubrication of large shrouded open gears, and to address the main problems associated with traditional lubricants for these gears.

  • Available in 2 Grades: 9000 Heavy Duty & 9011 Extra Heavy Duty

  • Available in 5ltr, 20ltr, 208ltr drums.

 

  Almasol® Syntemp® Lubricant 9901

  • Heavy-duty synthetic lubricant specifically designed for high temperature applications.
  • LE's ALMASOL® Syntemp™ Lubricant is a high temperature extreme pressure (EP) lubricant made from a very heavy synthetic fluid and non-melting base. It is specially formulated to provide exceptional protection at temperatures at which petroleum oils would completely oxidize (or carbonize).
  • ALMASOL® Syntemp® Lubricant is excellent for use on large open gears exposed to very high temperatures. It is also recommended for use on kiln girth gears, large industrial gearing, oven chains, sliding surfaces, large slow moving (friction) bearings and similar applications.
  • Contains ALMASOL®, LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive, which protects against metal-to-metal contact and also serves to reduce friction and heat. ALMASOL® Syntemp® Lubricant has exceptional water resistance and thus, remains unaffected by boiling water and steam. It also contains special rust inhibitors that prevent rust and corrosion.
  • Available in 5ltr, 20ltr, 208ltr drums.
