Gear Lubrication - Stopping Micropitting by Using the Right Lubricant


Different high-performance gear oils were examined on an FZG back-to-back gear test rig to determine if changeover to these high-performance gear oils could stop micropitting formation which occurred with other industrial gear oils. The test results showed that high-performance gear oils using advanced additive technologies can react at the surface of the tooth flanks after an oil change and stop further micropitting formation. The micropitting area stagnates.
