Castrol Optigear™ 1100 Range (previously called Tribol™ 1100 Range) of high-performance extreme pressure gear oils, developed to tackle wear-related problems in heavily loaded industrial gears and bearings. Developed for service in enclosed gear drives, sliding and rolling bearings, the Optigear 1100 gear oils are typically used where heavy and shock load conditions prevail.
Castrol Optigear™ 1100 is a Optigear 1100 is formulated with Tribol Gear Oil Additive (TGOA) Plastic Deformation (PD) additive. TGOA PD helps improve performance when operating temperature and loads reach a certain level of activation energy, by enabling the microsmoothing of surface roughness without increasing wear. The smoothed surface delivers optimum wear protection and an extremely low coefficient of friction, especially in applications which experience extreme pressure, shock loads, vibrations or low speeds. TGOA PD helps to protect against scuffing and shock loading, while maintaining a high load carrying capacity, and can help prevent the progression of micro-pitting in pre-damaged gears.
Specific grades within the Optigear 1100 range meet the requirements of DIN 51517 part 3 CLP and the requirements of a wide range of industrial bodies and equipment manufacturers.
Optigear 1100 oils are particularly valuable in the running-in phase as well as in applications where surfaces have already been damaged in the micro-range.
Typical applications are spur, helical, herringbone, bevel and planetary gears as well as in geared couplings.
Optigear 1100 gear oils may be used in rolling and sliding bearings.
Particularly suitable for Heavy duty reciprocating pumps for drilling mud or cement placement offshore and onshore drilling sites. Optigear 1100 oils have good water separation properties.
