Lubrication of Industrial Gear Drives

ISO/TR 18792:2008

This ISO Technical Report is designed to provide currently available technical information with respect to the lubrication of industrial gear drives up to pitch line velocities of 30 m/s. It is intended to serve as a general guideline and source of information about the different types of gears and lubricants, and their selection for gearbox design and service conditions. It discusses the basics of gear lubrication and failure modes, test methods for lubricants, viscosity selection, gear drive lubrication principles, and service information.
