Enclosed Gear Food Grade Lubricant

When it comes to food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications, Lubrication Engineers food grade oil and food grade grease can play a significant role in preventing costly damage brought on by severe operating conditions.

The number one cause of failure in any mechanical application is contamination
LE ProductsEvery industrial plant has a sizeable investment in both its equipment and the lubricant that is purchased to protect that equipment, so it only makes sense to protect these assets. A good lubrication reliability program in place to prevent contamination will protect the equipment and the lubricant, which in turn will eliminate or greatly reduce unscheduled downtime as well as increase profits.

Some of the common suffering points for gearbox applications are oil foaming, overheating, and emulsification – all caused or aggravated by use of the wrong oil for the application; and contaminant ingression that leads to lubricant failure and mechanical wear. All of these suffering points can be solved by implementing the following six lubrication reliability best practices for gearboxes.

Industrial gearboxes are expected to perform under conditions of high heat and heavy loads; and in environments often contaminated with dirt, process debris and water. Without adequate protection, gears will wear prematurely. You’ll have to replace parts more frequently, change oil more frequently, and worst of all, you’ll experience equipment downtime. To combat difficult conditions, LE offers an array of lubricants specially formulated for enclosed industrial gearbox applications.

Large open gears take a severe beating on a daily basis. Challenging conditions include outdoor environment, extended service operation, dust, silica, water, extreme heat and extreme pressures. Open gear lubricants must be specially formulated to keep equipment operating at maximum efficiency. Whether you operate a ball mill, rod mill, breaker mill, or kiln, Lubrication Engineers Pyroshield® line of heavy-duty synthetic open gear lubricants can help protect your valuable equipment and keep it running harder and lasting longer. If you are interested in making your large open gears last longer, lowering the amount of lubricant you use, and reducing overall maintenance expenditures, then we have the solutions for you.

Open Gear Lubricants


Self-Healing Fluid Seals & Protects Surfaces
LE Industrial Open Gear Grease Open Gear Lubricants
Almasol Syntemp Lubricant is excellent for use on large open gears exposed to very high temperatures. It is also recommended for use on kiln girth gears, large industrial gearing, oven chains, sliding surfaces, large slow moving (friction) bearings and similar applications.

Large open gears on grinding and pulverizing mills present significant lubrication challenges due to the high-load, heavy-shock nature of the application and constant exposure to harsh environmental conditions, such as cement, limestone, coal or silica dust. Lubrication reliability best practices for open gears include selecting the right lubricant and the right method of application to combat these challenges. Choosing wisely will help protect the gears from wear, increase uptime, and – in most cases – dramatically reduce gear set operating temperatures, lubricant consumption, energy consumption, and waste disposal. This will lead to a cleaner, safer working environment. The right choice for open gears is a heavy-duty, high viscosity lubricant with an extreme pressure, anti-wear additive package. A lubricant with a Timken rating of 70 pounds or more reduces wear and extends gear life.

LE Industrial Gear GreaseIn the past, open gear lubricants were asphaltic-based, had Timken ratings of 20 to 25 pounds, and relied on excessive volume for adequate protection. Most open gear lubricants on the market today use a variety of thickeners, such as graphites, silicas and traditional soap thickeners. With these newer types of lubricants, operators still report excessive consumption that leads to difficulty with the lubricants building up around the shrouds, not draining well and creating housekeeping issues.

Other concerns include needing to be heated for pumpability, plugging spray system nozzles, not spraying in low temperatures, drawing in contaminants, obscuring the gear from visual inspection, and not reducing gear temperatures. LE’s Pyroshield lubricant is a cool, clear, clean, pumpable solution for easily lubricating open gears at far less cost in the end. Kilns, finish mills and other open gear applications are no longer the nasty place you don’t want to be – thanks to Pyroshield and LE’s other open gear solutions.

LE’s industrial oils work for countless applications
LE Industrial Enclosed Gear Grease Enclosed Gears
Gear oil is made up of two critical components: base oil and additives. Additives impart desirable properties and suppress undesirable ones. The additive package is the backbone of the lubricant’s performance, and a strong backbone will provide the performance and protection you need. When selecting gear oil, there are three essential attributes to consider:

One – The gear oil must remain thermally stable and not oxidize at high temperatures, thus avoiding the creation of sludge or varnish. Keeping the oil from oxidizing will lengthen drain and replacement intervals. As a general rule of thumb, for every 18 degrees F (10 degrees C) increase in fluid temperature above 140°F (60°C), oxidation will reduce the service life of a lubricant by half.

Two – If you have an enclosed gearbox application that is heavily loaded or subject to shock loading, you need gear oil with extreme pressure properties. Gear oil with an EP additive will protect the gear surfaces against extreme pressures.

Three – Gear oil must fight contamination that enters the system, especially water. The oil must be able to demulsify, which allows for easy removal of the water from the gearbox.

LE Industrial Gear GreaseEvery industrial plant has a sizeable investment in both its equipment and the lubricant that is purchased to protect that equipment, so it only makes sense to protect these assets. A good lubrication reliability program in place to prevent contamination will protect the equipment and the lubricant, which in turn will eliminate or greatly reduce unscheduled downtime as well as increase profits.

Six Lubrication Reliability Best Practices for Gearboxes.

Best Practices for Gearboxes

  • Install desiccant breather
  • Install sight glass
  • Select and use the right high-performance gear oil for the application
  • Implement oil analysis
  • Filter to 17/16/13 cleanliness code
  • Implement color-coding & tagging


Reliability Program LE GearboxAt LE, they implemented these six best practices on their own gearboxes. Prior to that, the LE maintenance team was changing the oil in all of its gearboxes every year, regardless of need – an expensive and time-consuming task. Since they implemented these six solutions more than eight years ago, they have not changed their oil a single time, and they have had no lubrication-related downtime. In fact, the oil is nearly ageless, providing the same asset protection today as the day it was added. This has significantly reduced their maintenance, repair and lubricant costs, and freed up their maintenance team to engage in more proactive reliability activities.
