Bel-Ray Synthetic Gear Oils Win OEM Approval


Bel-Ray Synthetic Gear Oil, in ISO Viscosity Grades 150 through 460, has been issued an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) approval by Hansen Industrial Gearboxes of Antwerp, Belgium, for use in gearboxes produced and supplied by the company.

This high-performance, full-synthetic hydrocarbon and ester combination oil is designed for use in gearboxes on a wide range of equipment including grinding mills, kilns and driers, aerators, pumps, mixers, agitators and hoists.

Critical performance capabilities for this OEM-approved Bel-Ray lubricant have been proven during thousands of hours of use in the field and include the prevention of wear, arrest of existing wear trends, prevention of micropitting on new gears and extended service life.

Suitable for application in enclosed gearboxes, Bel-Ray Synthetic Gear Oil offers machine operators these essential features:

  • Reduced Micropitting.
    Special additives reduce and prevent micropitting, a form of gear tooth damage that occurs early in the life of gears and is often the root cause of premature gear failure.
  • Highly Filterable.
    Clean fluid promotes longer component life by lowering the cost of maintenance and ownership over the life of critical components.
  • Low Temperature Fluidity.
    The unique synthetic hydrocarbon and select ester base fluids provide excellent low temperature fluidity as well as unsurpassed film formation at higher operating temperatures.
  • Superior Wear Control.
    Proprietary additive system provides superior wear control and load carrying capabilities.

Bel-Ray Synthetic Gear Oil also has OEM approval from Bosch Rexroth (L&S), Caterpillar Global Mining (Bucyrus International), General Electric (electric wheel motors), Siemens (Flender), Joy Global Mining (LeTourneau) and Liebherr. In addition, this premium lubricant exceeds performance requirements of ANSI/AGMA 9005-E02 and DIN 51517 Part 3.
