The Castrol Optigear range of advanced gear oils has an advanced formulation that helps to lower levelized costs by reducing friction and optimizing 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 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.
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.
The Castrol Optigear Synthetic PD ES range is an advanced range of solid-free, high-performance, Flender-approved gear oils, which provide long-term lubrication for industrial gears that work with heavy loads and in extreme temperatures.
Whether for spur, bevel, planetary or heavy-loaded gears, the Castrol Optigear Synthetic PD ES range helps equalize surface roughness and minimize abrasion – improving the surface profile of contacting gears.
The Castrol Optigear Synthetic PD ES range reduces energy consumption and extends lubrication intervals by lowering frictional torque by up to 30% and delivering superior surface protection*.
