Lubricating an enclosed gear, slow-moving gear, or gear mesh? When gear drives operate under low rotational velocities, “slow speed wear” can arise. Slow speed wear results in the geometry of the working face of gear teeth changing shape. As a result, the gear can fail.
PolySi® Lubricants’ G-MAN® PST-415 was designed for lubricating slow-moving gear drives, operating with high loads and pitch line velocities less than 0.5 m/s. PST-415 lubricates the gear mesh at these low speeds due to the chemical make-up of the product and its semi-fluid state, providing high oxidation resistance with a low friction co-efficient.
PST-415 is a synthetic semi-fluid lubricant with extreme pressure and anti-wear additives to control wear, reduce the potential for gear seizure, decrease friction and prevent gear micro-pitting and/or pitting. PST-415 provides a lubricating film over a greater surface to prevent shearing under extreme loading and provides good elastomer compatibility, oxidative resistance, and corrosion protection. PST-415 reduces friction loss versus competitive brands. Applications include lubrication for enclosed gears, solar racking systems, tube mills, rotary kilns, robotics, slow-moving motors, spur gears, bevel gears, worm gears, small gears, toothed couplings, power tools, and bearings. G-MAN® keeps gears moving.
