Engineered Wear Control + Viscosity Retention

AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube is designed with extreme-pressure (EP) additives and shear-stable synthetic base oils that exhibit excellent viscosity retention. As a result, micropitting and scuffing wear is minimized.

Features

  • Designed with shear-stable base oils that retain viscosity
  • Passes industry-standard gear and bearing tests for micropitting and scuffing, including FZG micropitting test
  • Retains film thickness

Benefits

  • Efficient, long-lasting gears and bearings
  • Helps extend equipment life and reduce downtime and maintenance costs
  • Helps prolong lubricant and equipment life

Superior Foam Control

AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube resists foaming to deliver the correct engineered fluid film thickness, which reduces premature gear and bearing failure and results in gears and bearings lasting as designed.

Features

  • Passes ASTM D892 and Flender foam requirements
  • Contains durable anti-foam additives
  • Excellent entrained-air release time

Benefits

  • Optimizes gear oil film thickness
  • Helps reduce wear
  • Helps eliminate foam-initiated low-oil filter trips

Proven Water Resistance

Water is one of the biggest contributors to gearbox failure. It can cause sludge formation, additive drop-out, viscosity loss and filter plugging. Throughout a five-year field study, AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube demonstrated a low five-year average of 92 ppm water for maximum lubricant effectiveness and component life.

 

Features

  • Vacuum dehydrated below 100 ppm during manufacturing
  • Resists water adsorption
  • Filterability down to three microns

Benefits

  • Resists additive loss and filter plugging
  • Helps improve gear and bearing life
  • Inhibits rust, corrosion and sludge formation
Proven Water Resistance

 


Excellent Filterability

AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube is easily filtered using either 5- or 10-micron full-flow oil filters and is also recommended for use with 3-micron by-pass filters.

Excellent Filterability

Oil filter housing after operating with a competing synthetic ISO 320 gear lubricant.

Excellent Filterability

Same filter housing after cleaning. The AMSOIL flushing procedure removes contaminants from the gearbox before installing fresh oil. Peripheral components are cleaned manually.

Excellent Filterability

 

Features

  • Designed with 100% dissolved-additive chemistry
  • Does not contain solid additives
  • Easily filtered through improved low-micron filter media

Benefits

  • Eliminates filter plugging and filter trips
  • Extends filter life, while reducing operation and maintenance costs
  • Reduced gear oil particle concentration
