Gear Reducer Lubrication: What are your levels?

Categories: Industry News | News | Technical Tips

Not all gear reducer lubricants are the same.  Many of the newly manufactured reducers are coming from the factory with synthetic oil, or synthetic grease.  While synthetics are often superior to mineral based lubricants and offer longer change intervals, one should always keep an eye on the lubricant level, regardless of type.

Keep a list of the different lubricants required for your baggage conveyor system, as well as which gear reducers use which specific type of lubricant.  The gear reducer manufacturer’s literature will steer you in the right direction to help you find where to check the lubricant level and type, and are usually available from the manufacturer’s website.
