Bel-Ray has released Clear Gear Lubricant, a high-quality and high-viscosity lubrication for Type 2 open gear systems.

Clear Gear Lubricant is engineered to operate in the full fluid film or hydrodynamic mode of lubrication, especially suited to maximise gear tooth protection. The fluid easily drains from the open gear shroud and will not accumulate or harden in tooth roots. Clear Gear is a completely transparent product, which is designed to ensure easy dynamic and static gear tooth inspections and offers a clean appearance.

As a friction modified lubricant, Clear Gear reduces energy consumption and operating temperature. It is available worldwide in five viscosity grades including light, medium, standard, heavy, and extra heavy.

Clear Gear Lubricant light, medium, heavy, and extra heavy are approved by Metso Minerals for intermittent spray lubrication of open gears, while and grades medium and heavy are approved by Outotec. Clear Gear Lubricant exceeds ANSI/AGMA 9005-E02 Specification Annex D for minimum viscosity recommendation for open gearing.
