Gear Oil Offers Continuous Protection For Online and Offline Equipment

A new gear oil called Cortec® CorrLube has been specially formulated with patented Cortec® VpCI Technology for heavy duty applications and continuous corrosion protection of equipment during online operation and offline shutdown. Its unique corrosion protection means that during intermittent shutdown periods of one month to one year, oil does not need to be drained from equipment and new oil does not need to be added before start-up. CorrLubecuts oil usage, minimizes hazardous disposal, and save labor. It allows offline equipment to be quickly brought back online with minimum start-up costs and delays.

Cortec® CorrLube offers enhanced corrosion protection from heat and oxidation during operation and its unique vapor phase action significantly boosting corrosion protection during shutdown. While equipment is offline and oil settles to the lowest gravity points in a system, Cortec® vapor phase action releases corrosion protection into all surrounding cavities, recesses, voids, gear boxes and lines. It forms a monomolecular film that protects against internal oxidation and micro-corrosive elements that were generated by the high pressure and heat during equipment operation. During shutdown, the VpCI inhibitors are self-replenishing to provide continuous protection for up to one year.

CorrLube is a premium quality, extreme pressure oil that effectively lubricates all types of open and closed gear sets such as helical, herringbone, spur, bevel and worm gears. It offers the corrosion protection required by equipment that has periodic online and offline status found in processing plants, power plants, refineries, mining, off-road equipment, and industrial machinery. It is highly effectively in solving corrosive attack to gear systems aggravated by humid conditions found in vegetable and sugar beet/cane processing and marine applications.

As part of Cortec®'s new generation of environmentally friendly products, CorrLube is more than 50% biodegradable. CorrLubemeets or exceeds the requirements for Extreme Pressure Gear Oil for US Steel, AGMA, and Cincinnati-Milicron.
