Lubrizol Industrial Gears: Introduces Siemens MD Approved Gear Oils

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov 27, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation recently introduced a series of fully formulated industrial lubricants that meet the daunting Siemens MD specification (formerly known as the Flender specification). The Lubrizol products, FM2205A, FM2206A and FM2207A industrial gear oils, ensure trouble-free performance in heavy-duty gearbox applications in industries such as mining, metal fabrication and general manufacturing.

Many of today's industrial gearboxes operate with higher power densities, reduced oil volumes and increased temperatures-all of which put further stress on gear teeth, bearings, elastomer seals, and other components. The stringent Siemens MD specification for helical, bevel and planetary gear units exemplifies the challenge for gear oil formulators by demanding a high level of micropitting and dynamic foam resistance, as well as compatibility with the advanced materials now being used for the internal paint, elastomeric seals and liquid sealants in industrial gearboxes.

The specification has proven to be especially challenging since the additive chemistries designed to deliver performance in one aspect of the testing protocol can have a detrimental effect on other required performance areas.

According to Tim Cooper, Lubrizol industrial product manager for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, "The industry has been searching for a gear oil additives solution capable of ensuring the long-term integrity of gearbox materials while providing guaranteed resistance to micropitting fatigue. Extensive laboratory testing has demonstrated that this new Lubrizol proprietary chemistry provides the desired levels of performance across a range of base stocks."

In order to assist oil blenders who do not have access to the appropriate base oils for blending the approved formulations, the company is making available Siemens MD approved finished gear oils, which customers can quickly and smoothly upload into their supply chains and take advantage of a formal homologation with Lubrizol's proven oil re-brand program.
