Fully synthetic EP industrial gear oils based on special, selected polyglycols (PAG)
The RENOLIN PG oils are fully synthetic industrial gear oils based on special, newly developed polyglycol base oils.
Thus the RENOLIN PG products offer a very high oxidation and temperature stability. Polyglycols have a very good viscosity-temperature behaviour (high natural, shear-stable VI) and can therefore be used within a wide temperature range (depending on the viscosity grade and the working conditions from -35C up to 160C). Special additives adapted to these polyglycols further improve the good properties of the base oils - high wear protection, excellent corrosion protection also at the presence of condensation water, low foaming, and very good compatibility with non-ferrous metals.
The excellent anti-wear properties could be proven in different tests with RENOLIN PG. The load stage >14 was passed in the standard FZG test (FZG A/8,3/90), and the load stage >12 was passed in the FZG test A/16,6/140 (high speed, high temperature FZG test). RENOLIN PG has a high micropitting resistance - load stage “high” - and a good pitting resistance. RENOLIN PG was tested in a special “low speed” FZG test (according to DGMK (Deutsche Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft fur Erdöl, Erdgas und Kohle e.V.) - FZG scuffing test) which RENOLIN PG passed with excellent results (wear category: “low” = excellent). This special test shows the excellent wear protection of RENOLIN PG at two different temperatures (90C and 120C) under mixed and boundary lubrication conditions. The lubricating film remains stable even at high pressures and under mixed friction conditions. Thus the friction coefficient is low, and a temperature reduction by up to 20C can be achieved compared with mineral oil-based lubricants.
Efficiency tests in a worm gear test rig demonstrated the high performance and the low friction coefficient which is especially of great importance for the use in worm gears. The results of RENOLIN PG in the FE8 roller bearing wear test were excellent. Tests in a special test rig at the University of Munich (FZG Institute - Forschungsstelle fur Zahnräder und Getriebebau) led to excellent results regarding antiwear behaviour and efficiency.Application:
The RENOLIN PG gear oils are mainly suitable for the lubrication of gear units and worm gears / roller bearings and friction bearings which are subject to high mechanical and thermal stress. RENOLIN PG oils offer advantages compared with mineral oil-based gear oils especially in applications with high sliding velocities (e.g. worm gear units). Due to the high oxidation stability, the oil change intervals can be extended and the maintenance costs can be reduced at higher operating temperatures. The use of RENOLIN PG in worm gears (steel-bronze pairing) leads to a significant reduction of friction and wear. The RENOLIN PG products can also be used for paper machines, calendars, conveying machines and milling bearings. Peak temperatures of up to 200C are temporarily tolerable.Note:
RENOLIN PG is not miscible or compatible with mineral oils, ester oils and polyalphaolefins. When changing between polyglycols from different manufacturers, the compatibility has to be checked. Before changing-over, it is recommended to clean the system and to flush with RENOLIN PG. The compatibility with elastomers, varnishes and coatings should also be checked before changing from mineral oil to polyglycols. The specifications of the roller
bearing and gear manufacturers have to be observed.
