Servomesh WEG 320 has been evaluated against conventional Wind Gear Oil and has found Servomesh WEG 320 to be superior in parameters like micropitting protection, oxidative stability, foam & air release, filterability, low-temperature performance, rust & corrosion protection. A study of Servomesh WEG 320 against mineral oil & fully synthetic PAO based gear oil was conducted and reduced internal losses and higher efficiency in Load Carrying Capacity: FZG Scuffing test and lowest torque losses across all load stages in FZG efficiency test.

Servomesh WEG 320 will give a good performance compared to fully synthetic PAO based products available with an added advantage of lower cost.

SERVO is a one-stop solution for lubricants and greases (synthetic & mineral oil based products) for other applications like Yaw, Pitch, Main shaft, generator bearings, disc brakes, transformer etc.
