? The cooler running charactenstics of two synthetic industrial lubricants in gear applications have been correlated with wormgear efficiency.
? Gear efficiency improvements have been shown to result in lower power requirements in industrial applications.
? The improved efficiency afforded worm gears by these synthetic oils has been used to increase wormgear thermal horsepower ratings.
? Lubricant tractional properties have been shown to be a significant factor in determining wormgear efficiency.
? Future work will focus on the efficiency characteristics, particularly with respect to synthetic lubricants of non-worm industrial gearing and will evaluate lubricant tractional properties at the higher pressures operating in steel gearing.
