Open-gear lubricants

Whitmore's open-gear lubricants are designed to perform in the harshest environments and in the most demanding applications, reducing wear, minimizing equipment downtime, prolonging equipment life and lowering your operating costs. They are used worldwide on kilns, ball mills, shovels and draglines.

Names like Surtac® and Envirolube® have been well known for decades. More recent additions Gearmate® 1000 and SurStik® 800 have been formulated to further reduce consumption and operating costs.

Extreme-pressure greases

Whitmore's extreme-pressure greases are designed for use in severe applications across a variety of conditions, including high load, heat, moisture and a wide range of operating speeds. Protection from wear and high load is accomplished through the use of innovative additives that enhance film strength and adhesive properties. Our product line includes Matrix®, Caliber™ Blue, Caliber 3M and 5M, and Caliber XR.

Enclosed-gear oils

Severely loaded gears and bearings can experience scuffing and pitting. The anti-wear additive system used in our high-performance enclosed-gear oils stops scuffing and pitting by forming a protective chemical layer in the area of contact. Extreme pressure protection is assured, even under the most severe conditions of high load, shock load and reversing motion.

Our product line includes Paragon™, Paragon Gold, Decathlon™ HD (synthetic) and GF 365 (semi-synthetic). A hallmark of Whitmore's enclosed-gear oils is long lubricant life. Our no-cost oil analysis program ensures that the product performs consistently year after year, protecting your equipment.

Drag-rope lubricant and wire-rope lubricant

Whether the goal is to protect the rope itself, the drum lagging or the sheaves, Whitmore has the products to meet the need. Products include Whitmore's drag-rope lubricant, wire-rope lubricant and WR-5.

Biodegradable lubricants

You don't have to compromise performance in order to be environmentally responsible. Whitmore's complete line of high-performance biodegradable lubricants meets or exceeds industry standards and protects your valuable equipment, while protecting the earth.

Our line includes Earthkeeper® EP 2 grease, Earthkeeper enclosed-gear oils, Earthkeeper wire-rope lubricants and Earthkeeper open-gear lubricants.
