Lubrication of open gears

Open gears used in industry require special lubricants that provide an excellent performance even in extreme conditions. The spur drive gears of slab pushing systems, rotary kilns, cement plants, etc., are operated under extreme pressure. Given these forces, the gear wheels, spur gear units (with straight or helical gearing) are exposed to very high loads.

The lubricant plays an important role ensuring a smooth continuous operation despite the massive loads.

Lubricants for optimal operation of open gears:

  • high content of solid lubricants
  • strong adhesion capability
  • high resistance to pressure
  • environmentally safe.
This leads to:
  •  reduction of the wear on the profiles of the teeth
  • increased efficiency by reducing the friction
  • silent running of the gears
  • low environmental pollution.
Open gears requires environmentally safe lubricants with a high solid content.
