Castrol Optigear Synthetic X 320
VISCOSITY - ISO 320
Synthetic Gear Oils
Castrol Optigear Synthetic X is based on synthetic hydrocarbons and a special plastic deformation (PD) and surface improvement additive package. The additive package, when activated by high specific loads and corresponding temperatures, helps to equalize surface roughness without creating abrasion leading to the surface improvement (plastic deformation).
Optigear Synthetic X may be used in spur gear, bevel gears or planetary gear units and in heavy loaded gear units, e.g. wind turbine main gears. It is also suitable for the lubrication of oil-lubricated rolling bearings. Depending on the specific application, Optigear Synthetic X may be used in an operating temperature range from -30 °C to +95 °C.
Optigear Synthetic X is a CLP-HC gear oil (according to DIN 51502) and exceeds the minimum requirements according to DIN 51517 (2003), part 3, CLP gear oils.
Optigear Synthetic X gear oil can be applied by an oil can, oil cup reservoir, splash, spray mist or by automatic dispensing equipment and central or circulation systems.
It is compatible with mineral oils and esters. This means that traces up to 3% of previous oil in the gear case after draining will not pose any problems. However, the beneficial effects of the special PD additives are reduced when mixed with other gear oils
To achieve an optimum Lifetime of your elastomer sealings we recommend the use of Viton (FKM) based materials.
