Low friction gear oils that optimise efficiency
In many industries including wind, automotive and manufacturing, gearbox efficiency is the key driver of operational success. The challenge is friction, which compromises gearbox efficiency. Maximising the efficiency of every gearbox depends on the control of friction. Gearbox friction generates excessive heat, putting thermal stress on system components which causes wear and pitting. This shortens the life of component parts and reduces gear box performance, causing unscheduled downtime and replacement/labour costs.
CASTROL OPTIGEAR ACTIVELY LOWERS FRICTION
Castrol Optigear is a range of leading high performance gear oils formulated with MFT (MicrofluxTrans) Plastic Deformation technology. Under increasing loads, the MFT PD technology is released, creating a micro-smoothing effect that improves the quality of gear surfaces. Castrol Optigear is proven to lower the coefficient of friction by up to 60% compared to standard gear oils*, actively resisting wear and pitting.
SEE HOW CASTROL OPTIGEAR ACTIVELY LOWERS FRICTION
Lower friction means lower gearbox temperatures and greater protection against wear and pitting. And when Castrol Optigear improves the performance of your gears, your gearbox is more efficient - and your business is more productive. You can rely on it.
