Tribol 1100 Gear Oils with TGOA, represent a significant advancement in gear oil technology. Developed for service in enclosed gear drives, journals and anti-friction bearings, the Tribol 1100 Gear Oils are typically used where heavy and shock load conditions prevail. TGOA is an oil soluble additive package designed to reduce friction while providing surface protection and improvement. The TGOA additive package out-performs all other EP and anti-wear additives because of its unique action on frictional surfaces. The TGOA additive package is activated by high specific loads and corresponding temperatures causing a chemical-physical reaction. This results in an equalisation of surface roughness without creating abrasion. Therefore, surface roughness is reduced without the loss of surface material.
The results of the TGOA additive can be compared with a rolling process in the micro-range. The surface roughness is gradually levelled and smoothed. Through smoothing of the working surfaces, the loads are distributed over increasing areas and the actual load-bearing areas are enlarged.
During the running-in process, the TGOA additive package creates an optimum of smooth contact surfaces. If, because of shock loads or stop-and-go operation, surface roughness peaks redevelop, the TGOA additive package is automatically reactivated. Surface roughness is again equalised and lubrication optimised.
Tribol 1100 Gear Oils with TGOA additive package are particularly valuable in the running-in process as well as in applications where surfaces have already been damaged in the micro-range. Typical applications are spur, helical, herringbone, bevel, and planetary gears. They are also used in geared couplings. Tribol 1100 Oils may be used in anti-friction and journal bearings.
User benefits include:
Equalisation of surface roughness on interacting surfaces
Running-in oils or additives are no longer required. Lapping of gears is no longer necessary.
Prevention and stopping of running-in pitting if not caused by poor design or heavy overload of the gears.
Regeneration of damaged frictional surfaces on a micro scale.
Lower operating temperature and noise level.
Less friction and wear.
Longer life of gears and bearings.
Reduced maintenance costs.
Tribol 1100 Gear Oils exceed minimum requirements according DIN 51517 Pt 3 for CLP gear oils.
Tribol 1100 Gear oils are compatible with other petroleum gear oils.
This means that traces of previous oil remaining in the gear case after draining will not pose any problems. However, the beneficial effects of the TGOA additives are reduced when Tribol 1100 Oils are mixed with other gear oils.
A thorough cleaning of the gearbox is highly recommended to achieve the maximum benefits of Tribol 1100 Gear Oils.
