890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT Provides Low Non-Channeling Point
Base stocks that are not as highly refined as those Texas Refinery Corp. uses can cause problems in colder temperatures. Gear oils with those base stocks can become so thick in cold weather that the oil loses its fluidity . . . gears begin to run dry and metal-to-metal contact occurs. The high quality base stocks used in 890 VARI-PURPOSE Gear Lubricant SAE 85W/140 assure a low non-channeling point. Operators will not experience a dry start-up and shifting will be much easier.
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT The Basis Of The Quality
890 VARI-PURPOSE® is formulated with top quality base stocks which are highly refined to remove any undesirable materials, such as waxes and varnishes, that could be detrimental to a gear system. This adds to the protective film strength of 890 VARI-PURPOSE Gear Lubricant SAE 85W/140 – – which is outstanding. 890 VARI-PURPOSE® is very adhesive, meaning it will cling tenaciously to the gears, providing continuous lubrication, even in the presence of moisture. The cohesive property of 890 VARI- PURPOSE® is also important . . . the product will withstand extreme pressure operating conditions.
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT Contains Cushioning Additives
890 VARI-PURPOSE® contains a cushioning additive, which is particularly valuable when using heavily loaded equipment. Highly stable additives, along with stable base stocks used in 890 VARI-PURPOSE®, make this the most economical oil to use in heavy duty operations. The cushioning additive in 890 VARI-PURPOSE Gear Lubricant SAE 85W/140 also helps to eliminate the rumble and howl experienced by equipment.
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT Is Water Resistant
Moisture contamination in a gear box can be detrimental, causing rust on the metal surfaces which will produce friction and excessive wear. Moisture present can be caused by condensation. 890 VARI- PURPOSE® greatly exceeds most gear oils in water resistancy. A superb additive package does not allow 890 VARI-PURPOSE® to emulsify with water . . . it actually “breaks away” from water, allowing the moisture to be drained from the gear box as needed – – adding protection against rust and corrosion!
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT Is Non-Foaming
Many conventional gear lubricants on the market may begin to foam during operation, causing extensive problems. First, if foam is present, the level of the gear oil drops and proper lubrication is not achieved. Second, foaming will increase the temperature in the gear box considerably. Special foam inhibitors are incorporated into 890 VARI- PURPOSE® to ensure dependable protection. In most instances, the temperature in a gear box can actually be lowered with the use of 890 VARI-PURPOSE®.
890 VARI-PURPOSE® GEAR LUBRICANT Is Color Coded
Equipment operators receive several advantages by Texas Refinery Corp. color-coding 890 VARI-PURPOSE Gear Lubricant SAE 85W/140 a bright red. The chance of a wrong oil being used can be virtually eliminated . . . a leak can easily be traced . . . and 890’s color is a “life” indicator. When the color changes from a red to a dark color, it is usually an indication that it is time to change the oil.
