New Fire-Resistant Hydraulic Fluid
LE's New Product Recommended for Demanding Applications

LE's new Firesafe™ PoE Hydraulic Fluid (9455) is an FM Approved® fire-resistant product recommended for use in steel mills, foundries, mining, glass manufacturing, and other demanding applications where the possibility exists for the fluid to come in contact with an ignition source or where operating temperatures could exceed the fire point of a standard hydraulic fluid.



 
Lubrication of Enclosed Gears
Techni-Tips 100: Gears & Gear Lubrication

Modern gears are performing heavier work and carrying greater loads than ever before. Gear manufacturers are redesigning, modernizing and using finer steels to produce precision gears that will give better performance. Production demands are forcing the user to raise production above rated machine capacity. Many times this is done deliberately, with the knowledge that gear life will be reduced, but that the increased cost will be offset by increased production.

In the automotive, aviation and marine areas, as well as in industry, there is an increasing demand for more power in smaller packages. Gears are used to transmit this power and the same squeeze is on the gearbox, so a means must be found for increasing the load capacity of gears.

Lubricant manufacturers have helped in addressing this need by developing better gear oils to help safely carry these increased loads. Lubrication Engineers continues - with extensive research and testing programs - to produce tougher lubricants to stay ahead of the increasing demands of industry.
