Chemtura Corp. recently introduced a new synthetic gear oil series for applications requiring high micropitting resistance and protection under extreme conditions.
Anderol 5000 Plus EP Synthetic Gear Oils are formulated using a balance of advanced synthetic base stocks and additives, and exceed the most stringent gearbox manufacturer and industry specification requirements.
"This new series of extreme-pressure, micropitting-resistant premium gear oils will meet the growing demands of all major industrial gearbox manufacturers while providing many advantages over conventional oils," says David Barker, Chemtura's global industrial market manager.
The base stock technology coupled with the additive system offers improved load-carrying ability, excellent wear and rust protection, higher viscosity indices, higher flash points, low pour points, cleaner running systems and improved thermal and oxidative stability. This helps to promote higher gearbox reliability, extended lubricant life and reduced maintenance costs.
The polyalphaolefin/ester-based gear oils have operating temperature ranges from minus 30 degrees C to 100 degrees C. The series also includes a full range of viscosity offerings, including ISO 220, 320, 460 and 680.
Typical applications include spur gear, bevel gear and planetary gear systems in heavy-loaded gear units along with oil-lubricated rolling bearings.
