Industrial gearboxes are expected to perform under conditions of high heat and heavy loads, environments often contaminated with dirt, process debris and water. Without adequate protection, gears will wear prematurely. In that case to replace parts more frequently, change oil more frequently, and worst of all, you’ll experience equipment downtime. To combat difficult conditions, Lubrita offers gear lubricants specially formulated for industrial gearbox applications.

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 lubricants performance, and a strong backbone will provide the performance and protection for industrial gearboxes.

When selecting gear oil, there are three essential attributes to consider:

a) 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 10 degrees °C increase in fluid temperature above 60°C, oxidation will reduce the service life of a lubricant by half.

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

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

Most of Lubrita industrial gear oils and can be used in a wide variety of applications such as air compressors, air line oilers, bearings, blowers, circulating systems, cranes, gearboxes, hydraulics, industrial turbines, and vacuum pumps.

Lubrita gear oils benefits:

• Helps extend gear and bearing life in enclosed gear drives operating under extreme conditions of load, speed and temperature
• Helps reduce unplanned downtime; less maintenance - especially critical for difficult to access gearboxes.
• Helps extend oil life and drain intervals and reduce oil consumption, lowering maintenance costs
• Reduced energy consumption and lower operating temperatures
• Ability to operate at both high and low temperatures: especially critical in remote applications with no oil cooling or heating
• Smooth, trouble-free operation at high temperatures or in applications subject to water contamination
• Excellent compatibility with soft metals
• Helps extend gear and bearing life
• Fewer filter changes; helps to reduce maintenance costs
• Less contamination and lower potential oil leakage
• Easy changeover from most mineral products
