Meropa® lubricants are premium-quality gear lubricants that have been specially developed to meet the demanding load-carrying requirements of gear manufacturers.
Meropa lubricants are manufactured from high-quality base oils and have low pour points.
They contain an additive combination that enhances oiliness, extreme pressure, and anti-wear properties.
Meropa lubricants have a high oxidation, thermal, and hydrolytic stability, good water-separating characteristics, good air release and anti-foam properties, which helps to protect against metal corrosion and rusting.
Meropa lubricants are recommended for a wide variety of industrial and mobile equipment. Typical applications include enclosed gear systems, chain drives, sprockets, plain and anti-friction bearings, slide guides, and flexible couplings.
They are particularly recommended for enclosed gear drives and speed reducers, ranging from fractional kilowatt gear motors to large, high power units on metal rolling mills, cement mills, and mine hoists.
Meropa lubricants are also suitable for industrial hypoid-type gears and are also recommended for use in transmission gear cases and worm drive axles on automotive, construction and mining equipment. Additionally, they are suitable for bath, splash and circulation applications. Other specific applications for Meropa are in marine gearing such as main propulsion, centrifuges, and deck machinery including winches, windlasses, cranes, turning gears, pumps, elevators and rudder carriers.
1. Load-Carrying Capacity
Offers extremely high load-carrying capacity, has good anti-wear properties, and cushions shock loads.
2. Thermal and Oxidation Stability
Intends to keep sludge formation and frequent cleaning in circulation systems to a minimum, thus often reducing expensive downtime.
Recommended for continuous service for temperatures between 120–130°C.
3. Hydrolytic Stability
Aims to prevent sludge formation when in contact with water and retains compounding level for prolonged periods of time even in the presence of water.
4. Water Separation
Assures speedy separation of water in circulating systems.
5. Non-Foaming Characteristics
Readily dissipates foam under the most unfavorable conditions, such as violent agitation in the gear case.
6. Air Release Properties
Promotes fast release of entrained air bubbles which may be formed by frequently rotating gear components.
7. Rust Preventing Properties
Helps to prevent the rusting of gears and bearings in the presence of water.
8. Non-Corrosive to Copper and Copper Alloys
Aims to minimize wear-rates of copper alloys used in worm gears and bearings.
