Castrol Optileb™ GT 1800 Range (previously called Tribol™ FoodProof 1800) synthetic food machinery gear oils have been developed for service in worm gear drives and for all other types of enclosed gear drives, where heavy load conditions prevail. They were formulated to meet the stringent requirements for NSF-H1 lubricants and are designed for use in the food and beverage industry where incidental contact with food is possible.
Optileb GT 1800 Range gear oils are available in the typical ISO viscosity grades for worm gear drives, ISO VG 220 to 680.
Formulated to meet the requirements of the NSF-H1 approval, they are suited for applications where incidental contact with food is possible.
Optileb GT 1800 Range gear oils have a polyglycol basis and offer exceptional anti-wear and load carrying capacity.
Optileb GT 1800 Range synthetic food machinery gear oils are used in worm, spur, helical, herringbone, straight or bevel gears.
Optileb GT 1800 Range may be applied by oil can, oil cup reservoir, splash, spray, mist or by automatic dispensing equipment, central and circulation systems.
Optileb GT 1800 Range synthetic food machinery gear oils have been developed for the lubrication of worm gear units, with steel worms and bronze worm wheels. With this application, considerable advantages may be gained when it comes to the efficiency and service life of the gear units.
Due to the polyglycol base, friction values are being reduced and lower wear rates may be achieved due to special additives.
