Automotive Gear Oils
Gear oil is a lubricant used specifically for automotive manual transmissions for cars, trucks and different types of machinery. It has a high viscosity for better performance and protection of gears. Lubricants designed for manual gearboxes and differentials are also called hypoid gear oils. They offer higher viscosity to protect the gears better. The high viscosity ensures the transfer of lubricant through the gear train, which is essential since devices needing this heavy oil do not have pumps for transferring the oil with only a part of the lowermost gears bathed in an oil sump. This heavy oil can create viscous drag, leading to inefficiencies in vehicle operation. A number of modern automatic transaxles (integrated transmission and differential) do not use heavy oil at all, but lubricate with lower-viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available at pressure within the automatic transmission. Differentials and hypoid gear oils contain extreme pressure (EP) additives and anti-wear additives to cope with the sliding action of hypoid bevel gears. Fully synthetic gear oils are also used in many vehicles, and have a greater resistance to shear breakdown when compared to mineral oils. Synthetic gear lubricants reduce energy consumption due to a low friction coefficient.Why Crystals‘s Gear Oils – Main Features:
- Reducing energy consumption due to its low coefficient of friction.
- The range of viscosities offered, covering all ranges of operation.
- High viscosity index which ensures optimum performance in all temperatures.
- Excellent anti-friction characteristics which reduces the temperature of operation.
API classification subdivides all transmission oils into main classes: API GL-1, API GL-2, API GL-3, API GL-4, API GL-5 and API GL-6 and, accordingly, SAE 75W-90, SAE 75W-140, SAE 80W-90, SAE 85W-140 and LS- for Limited Slip. For maximum effectiveness, gear oils must not only lubricate, but also cool and protect complete gear systems. They should also transport worn particles away from the contact areas, reduce noise in operation and ensure protection against extreme pressure and temperature. Crystal auto gear oils help prevent wear on shifts and damage, eradicate costly equipment downtime and failure.
