Gear Lubricants

Gear Lubricants

In today's world of efficiency improvements, a lot of emphasis is placed on reducing energy requirements for equipment used in plant operations.  Summit gear lubricants have proven to reduce friction, thereby reducing the input power to operate the equipment or increasing the available power output.  The reduction of fluid friction results in lower lubricant operating temperatures, prolonging the life of both the lubricant and the equipment. 

Summit has developed synthetic gear oils which will not only reduce frictional drag, but will also protect gears against failures associated with heavy loading. Better wear protection, thermal and oxidation stability and reduced sludge and deposit formation insure enhanced performance when compared with petroleum-based lubricants.


Summit’s full line of gear lubricants have applications built to protect against heavy loading or shock loading, heavy duty manual transmissions and other industrial heavy duty gear drives including hypoid and worm gear operation under high speed/low torque or low speed/high torque and much more.

NSF ISO 21469

ISO 21469 specifies hygiene requirements for the formulation, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants, which may come into contact with products during manufacturing or processing. The international standard applies to lubricants intended for use in food production, as well as cosmetic, pharmaceutical and animal feed industries. NSF ISO 21469 Certification by an independent, third party provides Summit with a means to obtain international acceptance for their products.
