Moly Gear Lube 209A

#209A Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly

Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly is a multi-purpose thermally stable and thermally durable gear lubricant that is recommended for use in all types of enclosed industrial and automotive gear drives where extreme pressure characteristics are needed. Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly is blended from the finest high quality severely solvent refined, severeimagesly hydro-finished high viscosity index 100% pure paraffin base oils available. Blended into these 100% pure paraffin base oils is a highly specialized non-corrosive thermally stable and thermally durable multi-functional extreme pressure additive package that provides the Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly with the following performance advantages:
  • Enhanced thermal and oxidative stability and durability to handle operating temperatures of 300° to + 350°F.
  • Excellent extreme pressure properties to protect the gears and bearings from excessive wear and fatigue.
  • Prevention of the formation of sludge and carbon deposits that erode seals.
  • Excellent seal compatibility.
  • Enhanced protection of copper, brass and bronze components from corrosion.
  • Non-corrosivity to brass, bronze and other non-ferrous metal parts.
  • Excellent protection of components from rust and corrosion in dry conditions and in the presence of moisture.
  • Excellent resistance to water and moisture.
  • Excellent water separatibility characteristics.
  • Enhanced gear, bearing and seal cleanliness.
  • Excellent resistance to foaming.

Works great at higher speeds and higher temps

The trend among automotive and industrial gear drive manufacturers is to operate the equipment at higher speeds, loads, power densities and increased torque. This trend has resulted in automotive and industrial gear drives being subjected to higher operating temperatures. These higher operating temperatures have resulted in today's gear lubricants being subjected to extreme thermal stress.

The problem with conventional gear lubricantsgearwear2

It is important that a gear lubricant possess thermal stability and durability characteristics. Gear lubricants that do not possess these properties rapidly oxidize and decompose when subjected to high temperatures, resulting in the formation of sludge, varnish, and carbon deposits on the gears, bearings and seals, abraded seals, premature seal hardening and brittleness, and a loss of the gear lubricant's extreme pressure additive chemistries ability to protect against excessive wear, spalling and overall distress to the gears and bearings.

Schaeffer's Solution

Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly's severely solvent refined, severely hydrofinished high viscosity index 100% pure paraffin base oils and thermally stable and thermally durable multi-functional extreme pressure additive package enables the Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly to resist oxidation and thermal stress at operating temperatures 100°F to 150°F higher than conventional gear lubricants.

What happens under shock loading conditions?

Most types of gearing are designed to operate under hydrodynamic lubrication conditions. That is a full fluid oil film must separate the metal sgearwear2urfaces of the gears and bearing during operation. However, during periods of cold start up, extremely high operating temperatures or high stock loading conditions this full fluid film can be destroyed. Unless a boundary lubricant is present in the gear lubricant when this full fluid film is destroyed, excessive wear can take place.

Plating with boundary lubrication

Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly contains a proven friction reducer and boundary called Micron Moly®. Micron Moly® is a liquid type of moly that plates itself to the metal surfaces of the gears and bearings. Once plated, Micron Moly® forms an indestructible long lasting solid lubricant film that is capable of withstanding pressures up to 500,000 psi. This solid lubricant film once plated to the gears and bearings will reduce friction, vibration and wear, thus extending equipment life. The Micron Moly® also provides a smooth finished surface on all moving parts of the gear drive. This smooth finish minimizes the action of cold welding and vibration, which can occur during start up after gears have been standing idle and during periods of high shock loading. This in turn lessens starting loads and peak power demand, thus resulting in a realistic powercost savings. Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly contains adhesive-cohesive additives that allows the product to tenaciously stick and cling to the gears and bearings. This ensures that the Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly to retain a fine film that -stays put- on the metal surface of the gears and bearings regardless of how thoroughly it is wiped away. Moly Universal Gear Lube with Soluble Moly contains the proper additive system that allows the product to properly function and lubricate limited slip, positraction and high offset hypoid gear rear ends and differentials.
