GEARZ-EP-LT: Velocity Chemicals Launches Newest Mill Gear Cleaner and Degreaser

Written by Velocity Chemicals on . Posted in Blog, Clean Ideas, Mining and Oilsands, News, Ring, Pinion and Gear Cleaning

New-GEAZ-EP-LTSurrey, BC – Velocity Chemicals Ltd. has announced the launch of the newest addition to its range of mill gear cleaners and degreasers, GEARZ-EP-LT.

Specially formulated to work at ambient temperatures, GEARZ-EP-LT is a solvent-based cleaner that has been fortified with extreme pressure additives so it can lubricate, degrease and clean mill gears during operation, even under heavy load.

Through its additives, it can also remove the difficult lubricants that contain lithium, asphlatines and molybdenum disulfide, which can build up in the root of the gear teeth over time and negatively impact on the efficiency of mill equipment.

Speaking of the launch, Velocity Chemicals President and CEO Paul Krieser said:

“Keeping gears clean and well lubricated is essential when major mill operations want to achieve the highest levels of efficiency, both in terms of time and cost. But there are other aspects that make clean gears so important, not least alignment checks and warranty inspections.

Velocity Chemicals already provides a wide range of high quality lubricating, degreasing and cleaning products, but GEARZ-EP-LT is the next generation in our selection, designed to clean gears and protect them with the minimum downtime necessary.”

GEARZ-EP-LT is a low temperature solvent-based cleaner that has been specifically fortified with extreme pressure additives to ensure the most effective lubricating, degreasing and cleaning of mill gears possible while operating under load.

While GEARZ-EP-LT contains no chlorohydrocarbons and adheres to the highest health and safety standards, contaminates it removes from mill gears may form toxic vapours in heated conditions, an organic mist or vapour respirator is recommended during application. Please refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for disposal and handling procedures.

Main Features:

  • Biodegradable
  • Natural oil & EP additive
  • Not regulated under TDG
  • High flash point and lower odor than aromatic solvents
  • Effectively lubricates, degreases and cleans
  • No chlorohydrocarbons

For best results when rinsing, it’s recommended to use a high pressure, preferably hot water wash and dilute (1%) solution of HEAVYWEIGHT heavy duty caustic liquid cleaner or WONDERSOL multi- purpose alkaline cleaner, both also available from Velocity Chemicals.

With Velocity Chemical’s extensive distribution network, GEARZ-EP-LT is available anywhere within continental North America, with orders shipped 24 hours.
