Always the correct lubricant for your application

Lubricants play an important part in your gear unit. Here you will find all the information you need to prevent corrosion or creaking. Whether you require mineral or synthetic oil, special lubricants for use in the food industry or greases with high mechanical stability - we tell you what is important.

Our SEW GearOil

SEW GearOil - The perfect protection for your valuable gear unit
SEW GearOil - The perfect protection for your valuable gear unit

We now have more than 87 years of experience in developing and constructing gear units and numerous customer applications, resulting in vast tribological expertise. Based on this and the results of long-term testing, we have developed a special formulation for our first premium gear unit oil – SEW GearOil. It provides the perfect protection for your valuable SEW-EURODRIVE gear unit.

By using high-quality base materials and additives and appropriate logistics, we can ensure you always receive the highest level of quality.

SEW GearOil increases the performance of SEW EURODRIVE gear units – be they standard, servo or industrial. It reduces friction between the gear wheels as it develops an outstanding lubrication film that increases the service life of the lubricant itself as well as that of wear parts such as sealing rings and bearings. The high damage load stage of the SEW GearOil Base mineral lubricant (damage load stage 14) improves protection from fretting on the gearing. At the same time, SEW GearOil increases the efficiency of the gear unit and protects it from corrosion and damaging oil foaming. The self-cleaning properties of the lubricants prevent deposits as they bind water and dirt particles.

SEW GearOil is now available as a CLP mineral gear unit oil and as synthetic lubricant based on CLP PG (poly glykol) and CLP HC (polyalphaolefins) in various viscosity classes. Also available now are special lubricants with H1 certification for the food-processing industry.

Potential uses

You can use SEW GearOil either for the initial fill of your gear unit or in canisters or barrels as a packaging unit for use in service or maintenance work. The premium gear unit oil is available in the following packaging unit sizes and has a shelf life of up to six years:

  • Canisters (5 or 20 liters)
  • Barrels (205 liters)
  • IBC containers (1.000 Liter)

SEW Grease is made using perfectly coordinated product components that are tailored to the requirements of your SEW EURODRIVE gear units and motors, so you can be sure of the best possible protection for your drive and the best possible performance in your application.

Comprehensive testing has demonstrated the potential of our SEW Grease when it comes to performance. Among other things, meeting the high demands of SEW EURODRIVE also ensures compatibility with the oil seal materials used. In addition to this, we have carried out extensive compatibility testing with our approved lubricating oils. When developing SEW GearOil and SEW Grease, we also took the opportunity to perfectly coordinate the two lubricants. The resulting lubrication system delivers excellent gear unit efficiency and optimum performance at all operating points.

Our impressive SEW Grease benefits from the careful selection of product components, combining a calcium sulfonate-based thickener with a semi-synthetic base oil. An optimized additive package provides the finishing touch. SEW Grease is a high-performance product with exceptional thermal and mechanical stability for all friction points (bearings and seals) subject to high stresses in the gear unit and motor seals. This minimizes the wear on sealing rings and reduces the risk of premature bearing failure.

NLGI class 2 was selected as the consistency class, as this represents the ideal compromise between low losses in the bearing system and good adhesion to the key gear unit and motor components. This consistency class also ensures easy handling during assembly and relubrication.

SEW Grease is intended for use in all kinds of gear unit bearings, and for lubricating oil seals in the gear unit and motor. It is also available in an NSF H1 version that is approved for use in the food and feed industries.

By combining high-quality base materials and additives with appropriate logistics, we can ensure you always benefit from the highest level of quality.
