Today's drive-trains are becoming more complex in design and are using more advanced high-tech materials to improve power transfer. As a result they require fluids that are formulated specifically to optimize friction performance, wear protection, material compatibility and oxidation stability. Because of these aspects the lubricants that are used in this application must be specially formulated to meet and exceed these requirements in order to maximize the life of the friction discs in the powershift transmissions, provide smoother operation and shift handling, reduce wear and maximize equipment life.
These requirements are the driving force behind the Caterpillar specifications which outlines requirements on elastomer seal compatibility, oxidation stability, wear performance and friction properties for fluids that are used in Caterpillar equipment's powershift transmissions, final drives and hydraulic systems. This specification is aimed at improving the performance over that of automatic transmission fluids, universal tractor transmission hydraulic fluids and CD/TO-2 fluids that were previously used in these applications.
One of the keys to the operation of fluids for use in the lubrication of powershift transmissions is the type of additive system that is used in the formulation of these lubricants. The use of the wrong type of additive system can result in the attack of non-metallic materials and components, the altering of static and dynamic coefficients of friction needed to operate the components properly, and stick/slip and noise in the powershift transmission, along with a potential safety threat on units that contain wet brakes. This safety threat can cause stopping distances to be longer and when the wet brakes are used for parking cause a stick/slip phenomenon to occur which can lead to a unit that is parked on an incline to move at a barely detectable speed.
Super Lube Supreme is blended from the finest severely hydro-treated polyalphaolefin synthetic base fluids and severely solvent refined severely hydro-finish 100% pure paraffin base oils available. This unique combination provides Super Lube Supreme with superior oxidation, excellent film strength resistance, thermal stability and excellent resistance to thermal degradation and lower volatility
Blended into these para-synthetic base fluids is a very specialized non-corrosive high tech additive package that provides excellent wear protection and material compatibility while maximizing equipment life.
This specialized high tech additive package allows the Super Lube Supreme to provide the following performance benefits:
Further blended into the para-synthetic base oils and the highly specialized additive package is Micron Moly®. Micron Moly® is a liquid soluble type of moly that plated itself to the metal surfaces of the various components, thus forming a solid lubricant film that is able to withstand pressures up to 500,000 lbs. per square inch. This translates into better wear protection for the metallic components of the power-shift transmission and for the hydraulic system, thus extending operating life and providing an extra margin of safety for service.
Super Lube Supreme can also be used in Allison transmissions that call for a C-4 type fluid, Eaton-Roadranger and Meritor transmissions and the hydraulic systems of front end loaders, haul trucks, bulldozers and other crawler tractor type equipment that are common to the construction and mining industries.
This oil is specially formulated for use in power-shift transmissions. Do not use in diesel engines. Shortened engine life could result due to heavy piston deposits.
Schaeffer's is pioneering new concepts in lubrication that dramatically reduce twelve month bottom line operating costs. Our Bottom Line Cost Reduction Program focuses on reducing total maintenance costs. It's not the "cost to buy," it's the "cost to use" that matters. Results from this program demonstrate your company can reduce lubricant related costs by 30%.
To create our gear oils, Schaeffer's starts with the latest innovative technology in base stocks and additives. We combine 100% pure paraffin base oils with the finest quality synthetic base stocks to produce a base oil that stands a higher heat range (up to 250ºF more than conventional oils) and operates at colder temperatures (as low as -40ºF).
In addition to superior quality base stocks, we incorporate the latest generation of extreme pressure (EP) additive chemistry used in formulating gear lubricants. Our unique formula is non-corrosive to copper, brass and bronze components and can be used where previously only non-EP oils were recommended.
We also incorporate friction modifiers and solid lubricants that act as "backstop" lubricants against shock loads that squeeze the oil film out.
It's not the cost to buy...It's the cost to use
When you consider all the costs involved whenever equipment breaks down or becomes inefficient due to gear oil problems, it just makes financial sense to use superior-grade products to extend the lives of oil and machinery and keep those man-hours productive.
An annual savings of 30% using Schaeffer's Oils, rather than conventional brands, can be expected. You'll use fewer lubricants,plus your labor and energy costs will drop.
