When it comes to gears, efficiency is what matters most. The continued trend is greater production from smaller gears subjected to ever increasing loads and higher temperatures. With this in mind, a key component to increased gear efficiency is the lubricant that keeps it operating. Summit’s specialty gear lubricants have been developed and formulated to not only keep a gear in operation but to enhance its performance and reliability.

Maximize gear efficiency

  • Solutions for every challenge: Our full line of gear lubricants have been developed to protect against heavy loading or shock loading. Summit offers gear oil formulations for heavy duty manual transmissions and other industrial gear drives including hypoid and worm gear operation under high speed/low torque or low speed/high torque and much more.
  • Beat the heat: Our lubricants don’t just “hold up” in hot environments, they actively transfer heat away from the surface of the gear. Summit gear oils provide excellent oxidation and thermal stability at high temperatures while also preventing deposit formation, foaming and viscosity breakdown. 
  • Save money: Our gear lubricants have proven to reduce friction, which decreases the amount of input power required to operate the equipment. This reduction of fluid friction also results in lower lubricant operating temperatures, while providing extended lubricant and equipment life.
  • E​​xpertise included: All Summit gear lubricants come with recommendations from an expert technical service team, so you know our lubricants are being applied at the right time, in the right conditions, and on the right equipment.
