Ring Gear Lubrication: Superior Wear Prevention
What is the single greatest contributing factor to shortened ring gear or pinion life? Wear! That's right, wear. And what is wear caused by? Lubricant breakdown. When open-gear lubricants break down due to any number of factors, you get wear. Lubricant forms a barrier between mating gear surfaces and prevents metal-to-metal contact. What happens when you fail to prevent such contact? Wear! How then do you extend the life of your gearing? With superior wear prevention!
At Rexnord, we design and manufacture the highest quality heavy-duty gearing in the world. Now we also offer the perfect lubricant to protect our heavy-duty gearing. GMax 9000 is specially formulated to provide the best wear prevention in the industry. It provides this superior wear prevention because of superior viscosity stability and the low coefficient of friction we have designed into it. GMax 9000 is a petroleum-based product specially formulated to have superior viscosity, which leads to superior wear prevention. In addition to the excellent viscosity, we have formulated additives for superior buildup prevention on gear teeth and free flow for overall superior gearing life.
Our ring gears are manufactured to the industry’s highest achievable accuracy levels and superior surface finish quality using state of the art manufacturing equipment. GMax 9000 requires no harmful run-in procedure when used with new gearing. The technological advances in viscosity and lubricant adhesion are a result of years of ring gear experience from Falk. GMax 9000 offers unprecedented ring gear protection and longevity.
GMax lubricants are specially formulated to Falk’s specifications to provide superior wear protection and reduce consumption. This translates into cost saving on both annual usage and disposal of spent lubricant. GMax 9000 is good for your ring gear teeth. It is not harmful to the environment.
At Rexnord, we understand gearing, and we understand lubricants for gearing. That is what makes GMax 9000 the best heavy-duty ring gear lubricant. GMax 9000 and 9000LT are the only lubricants we recommended by name for open gearing.
