Chevron Cylinder Oil W 460
Chevron Cylinder Oil W 460 is a highly viscous mineral based lubricant that is intended for use in Worm Gear boxes and heavily loaded, slow moving bearing applications. These Cylinder Oils are a line of Chevron Lubricants that were originally developed for the lubrication of steam cylinders on steam engine due to their high temperature protection and the combination of oil emulsibility with water and metal wetting characteristics. Now their use is in worm gear applications that see heavy loads as well as high friction sliding action across the worm gears. They also do not contain EP additives that can have detrimental effects in worm gear drives due the the bull gear being made from copper alloys. 460 represents the thickness of the oil which is an International Standards Organization Viscosity Grade (ISO VG) 460. It is also considered an American Gear Manufacturers Association, AGMA 7 Comp.
