AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube is a multipurpose, synthetic circulating oil developed for use in a wide variety of industrial applications. The lighter viscosity grades (ISO 32, 46, 68 and 100) typically are recommended for use in rotary air compressors, circulating pumps, vacuum pumps and electric motor bearings operating under severe-service conditions or at extreme temperatures. The heavier viscosity grades (ISO 150, 220, 320, 460 and 680) typically are recommended for use in lightly loaded gearboxes that do not require an extreme-pressure gear oil. The medium viscosity grades (ISO 150 and 220) also are recommended for lubrication of the upper cylinders of gas compressors handling natural gas or process gas.
AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube is formulated with synthetic polyalphaolefin (PAO) base fluids and select additives to provide excellent protection against rust, corrosion and deposit formation. AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube has outstanding oxidation resistance and thermal stability at high temperatures to minimize sludge and varnish formation, and provide long service life. AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube protects system components against rust, corrosion and wear. AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube has excellent low-temperature properties for use over a wide temperature range, and is resistant to excessive foam buildup that can interfere with proper lubrication.
AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube is particularly recommended for use in circulating systems and lightly loaded enclosed industrial gearboxes where operating conditions may be unfavorable or too severe for conventional mineral oil-based circulating oils. AGMA 5 S Synthetic Gear Lube is compatible with mineral oil-based lubricants, but mixing should be avoided for optimum performance benefits.
