Open Gear Sorta Clear™
(Open Gear Envirolube XE Extreme)

Lubricant for Rotary Kilns, Rotary Dryers and Ball Mills

Open Gear Transparent Envirolube XE Extreme, a high performance, synthetic blend open gear lubricant for rotary equipment, is second generation to Whitmore’s Envirolube XE which boasts decades of proven success. High viscosity ensures girth gear tooth separation, eliminating metal-to-metal contact.  During inspection with strobe light the film is amber and translucent to clear providing both reassurance of application and visibility of gear surface.  Excellent anti-wear and Extreme Pressure capabilities provide maximum protection when rotary equipment is stressed to the extreme.  Overtime, reduction in wear, extending the life of the gear.

  • Effective layer of chemical and physical protection preventing scuffs, “micro-welding,” and pitting of girth gear with a 66% reduction in wear
  • Wear protection and surface improvement/smoothing extending the life of the gear
  • Friction-reducing additive
  • Easy Maintenance (spent lubricant does not harden, making clean up and clean off easy)
  • Translucent amber coating is visible on gear and pinion, but clear enough to allow inspection without removal (with strobe light) - Dark in color, cold and in drum
  • Lower operating costs
  • Meets or exceeds OEM standards
  • Environmentally responsible profile with no asphalt or chlorinated paraffins

Best Application: Open Girth Gears and Pinions on Rotary Kilns, Dryers and Ball Mills
Available in: 55 gallon drums, Kegs, Shuttle Tank
