Synthetic Oils for Worm Gear Lubrication
|Publication Date:||1 October 1999|
This paper shows several synthetic gear oils and their influence on wear and efficiency of highly loaded worm gears. The results are based on measurements carried out on the Kluber worm gear test rig. This test rig allows the measurement of input speed, input torque, output torque, bulk and sump temperature. The measured results are compared with other investigations such as measurements of friction coefficients and DIN 3996.
