999 S & F GEAR OIL
This product was specially formulated to meet the stringent requirements for Spicer and Fuller transmissions. Both manufacturers require a high quality lubricant which must perform several functions without coking or sludging up the unit. The transmission is where the horsepower goes to work. The correct transmission is extremely important in the efficient operation of trucks, tractors, and industrial machinery subjected to varying conditions of road and load. This is why so many equipment owners prefer Spicer and Fuller transmissions — the leaders of the heavy-duty transmission industry. For lubrication Texas Refinery Corp. is the leader of the heavy-duty transmission lubricant industry.

Starts With Quality Base Oils
Texas Refinery Corp’s starting point for this product is the crude oil. It has to be of low sulphur or sweet type paraffin-based mid-continent quality. Then the base oils are put through a solvent extraction process which removes undesirable characteristics that might lead to sludge, gum, or varnish under heat. The oils then go through another step called hydro-treating which improves the oxidation characteristics of the oil and improves the oil’s response to the high quality additives used by Texas Refinery Corp. The oils also go through a dewaxing process to make them suitable for cold temperatures. The finest paraffin-base stocks with a 95 viscosity index are used because they are less susceptible to attack from oxygen and various acids. They allow for greater thermal oxidation stability and can be used over a wide temperature range.
Contains Anti-Wear Additives
999 S & F GEAR OIL contains anti-wear additives which provide a protective film on all moving parts. In operation, transmissions have many heavily-loaded parts such as gear teeth and bearings. A protective film must be provided to prevent metal-to-metal contact between these parts and therefore prevent scoring, scuffing, and seizure. If the protection is not provided, expensive repair and downtime are the end results.
Acts As A Coolant
Transmissions generate heat when in operation — especially under heavily-loaded conditions. Heat must be kept minimal for proper operation. 999 S & F GEAR OIL acts as a coolant to dissipate heat so maximum efficiency may be maintained. It is formulated to remain stable under extreme conditions.
999 S & F GEAR OIL resists oxidation two ways. First, only the highest quality base stocks are used. Second, oxidation inhibitors are added to provide gear stability at elevated temperatures. This increase in stability prevents corrosion and sludge from forming. No foreign materials such as sediment or water are present.
Provides Proper Viscosity
999 S & F GEAR OIL was formulated to provide the proper viscosity. It is an SAE 90 gear oil equal to the SAE 50 motor oil classification. Proper viscosity is required for film strength and proper flow to the various transmission components.
