Syn Machine Oils are superior, full synthetic industrial extreme-pressure gear and bearing lubricants. They can be used where high loads and/or high temperatures are encountered and where water contamination cannot be avoided. Syn Machine Oils provide superior anti-friction characteristics in bearings, steel gear transmissions and steel/phosphor bronze gear units.
Syn Machine Oils combine full synthetic polyalphaolefin and ester fluids with special additives which enhance the anti-oxidation, anti-corrosion, anti-rust and anti-foam performance of the lubricants.
Syn Machine Oils are recommended where high load and high temperature conditions occur in:
- Industrial enclosed gear drives lubricated by splash or circulation methods.
- Heavy duty industrial journals, plain and anti-friction bearings, chain drives, slide guides, etc.
- (In the lower viscosity grades) rock drills, hydraulics and automotive manual gearboxes which specify API grades GL1, GL-2 (obsolete) and GL3 (obsolete).
Syn Machine Oils may also be recommended where service conditions are not severe.
