Meropa® Synthetic WM 320

Meropa® Synthetic WM 320 is formulated with synthetic hydrocarbons and a reliable sulphur-phosphorus Extreme Pressure additive package which is designed to minimize wear of enclosed industrial gears operated under heavy loads and shock conditions. It provides good foam resistance and water separating characteristics which make it ideal for circulating systems with incidental water contamination. The non-corrosive formula aims to protect gear and bear materials such as steel, copper, bronze, babbitt or cadmium-nickel. Meropa Synthetic WM 320 has good oxidative and thermal stability for long service life. The naturally high VI and low pour point provide improved performance and lower viscous drag losses at low operating temperatures compared to conventional industrial gear oils. It has been specially designed to provide high micropitting protection.
