Pyroshield® Syn Heavy & Extra Heavy Open Gear Oil

SKU: LE9000, LE9011

Typical Applications

Industries where large open gears are in service, including:

  • Coal-fired power generation
  • Mining (iron, copper and other minerals)
  • Sugar beet processing
  • Cement
  • Ceramics
  • Paint
  • Glass and sand

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.

Proprietary Additives

LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Pyroshield Syn Hvy & XHvy Open Gear Lubricants contain Almasol.

Almasol® solid wear-reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and temperatures up to 1,900ºF (1,038ºC). It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer but not building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
