Gear Lubrication - Gear Protection also at Low Oil Temperatures Author: M. Hochmann


To find out if the high­performance gear oils of today are able to reliably protect gears and rolling bearings in gearboxes against damage also at a reduced oil temperature of 40°C, different high­performance gear oils were examined on an FZG back­to­back gear test rig as well as on an FE8 bearing test rig by modifying the standardized test methods. It has been shown that the advanced additive technologies used in today's high­performance gear oils are capable of inducing the required reactions on the surfaces of gears and bearings also at 40°C, thus providing reliable damage protection even under these operating conditions.
