AGMA 7 ISO VG 460 Compounded Gear Lubes are designed to be implemented in various industrial machinery including worm gear drive operating at moderate to high temperatures and as a lubricant in steam engine cylinders and valves. In addition to these components, heavily-loaded, low-speed bearing lubrication is capable of being achieved by compounded gear lubes. Compounded gear lubes may also be used for general purpose lubrication such as on the screw-down bolts on rolling mills and in general applications calling for an API GL-2 oil.
ISO VG 460 oil has a midpoint kinematic viscosity of 460 cSt (centistokes). The midpoint is derived by taking the average of both the minimum and maximum kinematic viscosities which is accounted for by the AGMA designation. The maximum and minimum kinematic viscosity of an AGMA 7 oil is 506 mPa.s and 414 mPa.S, respectively. Averaging these two quantities together, the result is equivalent to the midpoint kinematic viscosity measured in the ISO VG testing mechanism.
