Chevron Gear Compounds EP deliver value through: High film strength - Gear teeth are protected from wear, surface distress, and premature failure by effective sulfur-phosphorus extreme pressure additives. High stability - Minimal degradation even when operating in conditions of oxidation and thermal stress. Gives long life in service. Fast water separation - Separates quickly from water and resists forming permanent emulsions. Designed for misting systems - Excellent oxidation stability prevents oil mist deposits. Rust and corrosion inhibited - Reduces corrosion on either steel or nonferrous metals in gear sets. Improved thermal and oxidation stability - Prevents degradation under severe operating conditions.
Chevron Gear Compounds EP are multipurpose gear lubricants. They provide good thermal stability, extreme pressure protection, antiwear and demulsibility, oxidation, rust, corrosion control and foam inhibition. Chevron Gear Compounds EP used in misting systems provide excellent oxidation stability to prevent oil mist deposits. They will form a high volume of mist droplets for transmission to the point of application. Chevron
Gear Compounds EP have minimal stray mist (fog).
For customers wishing to extend drain intervals and further reduce gear wear, and where water contamination is minimal, Chevron Ultra Gear
Lubricant is recommended. Chevron Ultra Gear Lubricant can be used in industrial applications where overloading, severe operating conditions, high lubricant operating temperatures, or other problems are encountered. Chevron Ultra Gear Lubricant has been shown to reduce operating temperatures, power consumption/energy requirements, and failure rates in industrial operating environments.
Chevron Gear Compounds EP meet the requirements of: U.S. Steel 224, AGMA 9005, MAG Cincinnati, Cincinnati Machine P-77 (ISO 150), Bijur oil application equipment, General Motors LS2 Specification LR for EP gear oils
Chevron Gear Compounds EP are recommended for all industrial enclosed gearing and wherever an AGMA
extreme pressure lubricant is specified. Chevron Gear Compounds EP, in the proper viscosity grade, are recommended for all mist oil application systems.
The same products can also be used in general industrial plant lubrication where the performance properties of this type of lubricant are required.
