Supreme Gear Lube is blended from the finest high quality severely hydro-treated polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic base fluids and severely solvent refined, severely hydro-finished pure high viscosity index 100% pure paraffin base oils available. This unique combination provides Supreme Gear Lube with the following advantages:
Blended into these para-synthetic base fluids is a highly specialized non-corrosive thermally stable and thermally durable multi-functional extreme pressure additive package that provides the Supreme Gear Lube with the following performance advantages:
The trend among automotive and industrial gear drive manufacturers is to operate the equipment at higher speeds, loads, power densities and increased torque. This trend has resulted in automotive and industrial gear drives being subjected to higher operating temperatures. These higher operating temperatures have resulted in today's gear lubricants being subjected to extreme thermal stress.
Therefore, it is important that a gear lubricant possess thermal stability and durability characteristics. Gear lubricants that do not possess these properties rapidly oxidize and decompose when subjected to high temperatures, resulting in the formation of sludge, varnish, and carbon deposits on the gears, bearings and seals, abraded seals, premature seal hardening and brittleness, and a loss of the gear's lubricant's extreme pressure additive chemistries ability to protect against excessive wear, spalling and overall distress to the gears and bearings.
Supreme Gear Lube's para-synthetic base oils and the thermally stable and the thermally durable multi-functional extreme pressure additive package enable the Supreme Gear Lube to resist oxidation and thermal stress at operating temperatures 150ºF to 175ºF higher than conventional gear lubricants. This results in:
Most types of gearing are designed to operate under hydrodynamic lubrication conditions. That is a full fluid oil film must separate the metal surfaces of the gears and bearings during operation. However, during periods of cold start up, extremely high operating temperatures or high shock loading conditions this full fluid film can be destroyed. Unless a boundary lubricant is present in the gear lubricant when this full fluid film is destroyed, excessive wear can take place.
To prevent this wear, molybdenum disulfide is further blended into Supreme Gear Lube. Molybdenum provides the boundary lubrication needed by plating itself to the metal surfaces of the gears and bearings. Once plated, molybdenum disulfide forms an indestructible long lasting solid lubricant film that is capable of withstanding pressures up to 500,000 psi. This solid lubricant film once plated to the gears and bearings will reduces friction, vibration and wear, thus extending equipment life.
The Moly film also provides a smooth finish surface on all of the moving surfaces of the gear drives. This smooth finish minimizes the action of cold welding and vibration, which can occur during start up after the gears have been standing idle and during periods of high shock loading. This in turn lessens starting loads and peak power demand, thus resulting in a realistic power cost savings.
Supreme Gear Lube contains adhesive-cohesive additives that allows the product to tenaciously stick and cling to the gears and bearings. This ensures the Supreme Gear Lube to retain a fine film that "stays put" on the metal surface of the gears and bearings regardless of how thoroughly it is wiped away.
Supreme Gear Lube contains the proper additive system that allows the product to properly function and lubricate limited slip, positraction, and high offset hypoid gear rear ends and differentials.
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.
