The demands made on gear oils have risen significantly. New developments in the field of drive train technology are mostly accompanied by increases in component performance - more performance or higher capacity needs to be transferred in ever shorter periods of time. At the same time, components and gearboxes become increasingly smaller and compact.
A gear oil, as one of the most important and complex engineering elements, must satisfy changing application conditions and performance requirements. Oil volumes get smaller, oil circulation cycles increase and the energy transferred to the lubricant increases. This leads to an increase in the thermal and oxidative load on the lubricant.
Also, the technical demands on industrial lubricants have changed dramatically over recent years – these have become more “stringent”. New, complex bench tests with exact thresholds have been developed to better reflect the demands and problem areas in drive trains and gears.
Our gear oils prolong gear life, extend maintenance intervals, lower maintenance costs and minimise downtime.
