NanoLub® gear oils are formulated for enclosed industrial gear systems that operate under heavy loads, high impact and intermittent shock loads. NanoLub® can be used in industrial systems involving roller bearings, chains, conveyor systems and various heavy loading plain sliding components. Oil sands and coal mining industry, cement, steel plants and other heavy industries. Provides outstanding ability to work under hydrodynamic and boundary lubrication conditions due to high quality additives, fluid durability and IF-WS2 lubricant film formation. Can be used to extended life-time of gears due to the exfoliation and coating of IF-WS2 particles on metal contacts at high loads resulting in reduced part wear and scuffing. Significant drop in heat and friction leading to fuel savings in gear systems compared to conventional and other particle-based (e.g. MoS2) industrial gear oils. Excellent thermal stability and oxidative stability in combination with high viscosity index provides extended operating temperature range. Outstanding protection against rust and corrosion in any harsh environments. Excellent water-separation and foam-resistance characteristics. Ideal for use in the oil sands and coal mining industry, cement, steel plants and other heavy industries.

Manufacturer's Description

Wind turbines are subjected to constant friction and wear while operating under extreme pressure conditions of heavy loads and varying temperatures. This causes significant maintenance problems with declining productivity, worsened performance, frequent breakdowns and shortened machinery life.NanoLub® Anti-Wear & Anti Friction lubricants are based on a unique patented technology of proprietary super strong tungsten disulfide (WS₂) multilayered nano fullerene-like particles. These unique multi-layer WS₂ nano-spheres lower friction and heat, thereby reducing mechanical wear. At the same time, contact pressure causes nano-spheres to release tribofilms that attach to surface asperities and smooth them, thereby extending mechanical efficiency and apparatus life. Nanolub® product range includes Extreme Pressure Oil and Grease AW/AF additives of various types, as well as AW/AF Dry Coating, capable of significantly improving the performance of Extreme Pressure like turbines and other mechanical systems used in Wind Turbines.
NanoLub® ISO-220EP Industrial Gear Oil is a new generation fully formulated oil based on our proprietary nano-sized inorganic fullerene-like tungsten disulfide IF-WS2  particles engineered to provide outstanding load-bearing, anti-wear and ultra-low friction. NanoLub® ISO-220EP is a blend of solid IF-WS2 nanoparticles and other high-quality multifunctional lubricant additives dispersed in a premium grade mineral oil designed for heavy industrial enclosed gear systems. NanoLub® ISO-220EP can be used in other extreme gearing applications such as power plants, mining equipment, steel mills and cement plants replacing conventional gear lubricants.NanoLub® is based on NIS’ unique patented technology using solid tungsten disulfide WS₂ multilayered nano fullerene-like particles. These unique multi-layer IF-WS₂ nano-spheres are well-known to show outstanding temperature (-270 °C to 450 °C), shock (5,076,000 PSI) and pressure (4,263,000 PSI) resistance and renders them to be versatile under extreme operating conditions including high and ultra-low temperatures, high pressure and high vacuum, high load, high rotating speed, high radiation and corrosion conditions.
Due to its size (50-200 nm) and morphology of IF-WS₂ nanoparticles, they easily fill the asperities and irregular surface of the metals providing excellent load bearing and anti-wear properties. Under high loads (>1 GPa), the layers peels from the spheres forming a thin protective monolayer of WS₂ on the surface of the metal thereby reducing friction and wear between the metals.
