Anglo Design supplies Anglomoil Cat FD-1, a dedicated final drive and axle oil formulated for demanding off-highway applications.
Anglomoil Cat FD-1 final drive and axle oil meets the increased workload on gears and bearings brought about by increased productivity due to the significant improvement in final drives and axles.
Cat FD-1 oil offers enhanced protection for gears and bearings, ensuring their satisfactory life and performance.
Anglomoil Cat FD-1 final drive and axle oil minimises wear in heavily loaded gears due to the unique additive system used in formulating the oil.
In addition to longer component life, the oil ensures excellent thermal and oxidative stability to protect against oil thickening and deposit formation. This extends oil life and facilitates longer oil drain intervals in final drive and axle compartments compared with normal TO-4 fluids.
FD-1 oils are generally not recommended for use in compartments that contain friction materials.
Providing excellent rust and corrosion performance, Anglomoil Cat FD-1 final drive and axle oil offers increased protection for bearings and gears against macro-pitting and metal fatigue.
Using industry standard final drive and bearing fatigue tests, the additives used to formulate Anglomoil Cat FD-1 exhibited over twice the performance of conventional off-highway lubricants.
Anglomoil Cat FD-1 final drive and axle oil also offer excellent metal and seal compatibility for long gear and bearing life as well as longer fluid life.
Its anti-foam properties inhibit the natural development of foam in transmission service that can otherwise promote ineffective gear lubrication and premature wear. Cat FD-1 contains effective anti-foam agents for sustained foam protection.
Based on field and laboratory testing, the recommended oil change interval for off-highway truck differentials and final drives is doubled from 2,000 hours with conventional off-highway lubricants to 4,000 hours with the additives used to formulate Anglomoil Cat FD-1.
The increased oil change interval allows operators to extend maintenance cycles, maximise operational uptime and save money.
