Summit Syngear® SH®-1000 Series gear lubricants are formulated with synthetic base stocks and fortified with select additive systems to enhance their exceptional performance. The PAO base fluid used has outstanding oxidation and thermal stability, naturally high viscosity index and excellent low temperature pumpability and fluidity. The unique additive system used provides increased oxidation stability, extreme pressure properties, and maximum protection against wear, rust, corrosion and foaming.
In today's world of efficiency improvements, there has been much emphasis placed on reducing energy requirements for equipment used in plant operations. Summit Syngear® synthetic gear lubricants have proven to reduce friction, there-by reducing the input power to operate the equipment or increasing the available power output. The reduction of fluid friction results in lower lubricant operating temperatures, prolonging the life of both the lubricant and the equipment. The additive system used in this product not only reduces frictional drag, but also protects gears against failures associated with heavy loading and meets the requirements of U.S. Steel 224 specification, AGMA 9005-D94 specification, DIN 51517 Part 3 CLP specification and API GL-4 Gear Service Category.
Summit Syngear® SH®-1000 Series gear lubricants are recommended for use in all types of enclosed gearing as well as plain and rolling element bearings. These lubricants are ideal for heavily loaded low speed gears and bearings where boundary or elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) conditions exist, such as in mine hoist gear reducers. They are particularly recommended for gearboxes which operate under excessively high temperatures where good quality conventional oils rapidly oxidize. Summit Syngear® SH®-1000 Series gear lubricants may also be used in certain open gear applications, but it is recommended that Summit lubrication engineers be consulted to select the most effective method of application. Summit Syngear SH®-10032, SH®-10046 and SH®-10068 are also recommended or use in piston or gear-type pumps, expecially where pressures exceed 1000 psi or when operating over a wide temperature range.
Summit Syngear® SH®-1000 Series gear lubricants are compatible with most seal materials, paints and plastics, including nitrile Buna N, neoprene, viton, teflon, polyethylene, polyurethane ether, fluorocarbon, polyacrylate, polysulfide, ethylene acrylic, epoxy, plastisol, PVC, acrylic paint and lacquer.
