Gear oil is a type of lubricant used to lubricate gears in gearboxes and differential systems in vehicles and machinery.
It is designed to withstand the high loads, high temperatures, and shock loading that gears are subjected to, improving efficiency and extending the lifespan of the gears.
Gear oil is available in different viscosities to match the demands of various gear types and operating conditions, and is formulated to meet industry standards set by organizations such as API and AGMA.
Regular maintenance, including checking and changing the gear oil, is necessary to ensure proper lubrication and gear performance. It is important to use the correct type of gear oil specified by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility and to avoid damage to the gears.
