The new 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 in various viscosity classes. Synthetic SEW lubricants based on CLP PG (polyglycol) and CLP HC (polyalphaolefins) and lubricants for the food processing industry are in the pipeline.
