What are the benefits of UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE?
Only “95 VI paraffin base oils” are used. These neutral oils are very resistant to temperature changes . . . this means UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE will not thin out when temperatures increase, or thicken up when temperatures drop. The neutral oils are so highly refined they are within two percent of having all impurities removed, and will not contribute to the formation of sludge, varnish, and other undesirable by-products, as many other bases will. Additive packages are incorporated with these neutral oils to build a superior gear oil . . . UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE!
Today’s vehicles place enormous demands on lubricants.
Some of the new aerodynamic equipment reduces air resistance, but at the same time reduces air flow used for cooling. Certain conditions can increase the transmission temperatures significantly. Such conditions might include high ambient temperatures, heavy loads, and extended slow speed travel. Fortunately, UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE can protect components at temperatures up to 100°F. higher (for short durations) than ordinary gear lubricants. This product has excellent thermal stability for extended oil service life and reduced component wear.
UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE contains new additive technology that prevents sludge and gum deposits even when the oil is subjected to sustained high temperature service.
This extra measure of oxidation stability reduces component wear as well as extends the oil service life. The new additive technology is necessary because some transmissions and final drives currently have operating temperatures from 280° F. up to 320° F. for short durations. This has created transmission synchronizer coking that has caused difficulty in gear changing. By eliminating the deposits, the shifting problems are eliminated as well. In addition, oil flow to gears and bearings is not obstructed by deposits in oil passageways or filters.
EXTENDS SEAL LIFE
UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE is able to perform at high temperatures and still be compatible with seals.
It prevents deposits on and around the seals. In addition the product is chemically compatible with seal materials. A relationship is evident between the severity of seal deposits and premature leakage. Tests indicate temperatures around the seal area can run 30 to 50° F. in excess of sump temperatures. Deposits around the seal can cause elastomer losses which result in premature leakage. UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE actually extends the life of seals under heated conditions.
EXTREME PRESSURE ADDITIVES
Extreme pressure additives provide the load carrying properties of a gear oil.
UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE incorporates some of the best extreme pressure additives available. A full 70 Timken OK Load test for UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE 90 and a full 75 Timken OK for UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE 140 is typical. When extreme pressures are incurred, UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE will provide ultimate protection against wear that may occur on gears. If wear can be kept minimal, operation costs can be drastically reduced. UNIVERSAL GEAR LUBE will consistently out-perform other GL-5 gear lubricants by providing greater gear surface fatigue (spalling) resistance. In addition, wear metals (iron) will show up.
