Landing Gear

The landing gear functionality is of great importance for a safe start and a smooth landing. To ensure functionality, all landing gear components have to be well maintained. The lubricant choice matters here. The lubricant has to be suitable for the application in low temperatures and offer a low performance loss when suited for lifetime lubrication. LUBCON high-performance lubricants for aerospace applications are successfully used by well-known aircraft manufacturers. They reliably ensure the highest safety and functionality at take-off, in flight and upon landing.

Gears

Thermoplex TTF 122

This LUBCON special grease is a low temperature grease for lubrication in negative temperatures up to -70 °C ( -94 °F). The product has a good load carrying capacity and a good corrosion protection. It has a low starting resistance and low friction torque, even at high speeds, and is therefore suitable for lifetime lubrication. The product is successfully used in aviation applications, such as nose landing gears.

Turmofluid TTO 12

This special low-temperature hydraulic oil maintains its viscosity even at varying temperatures. The viscosity is 13,4 mm2/s at +40 °C. This oil is thus suitable for the application in hydraulic systems, e. g. in airplanes. It is resistant to pressure, oxidation and cold, protects against corrosion and has high viscosity stability. The application in low temperatures up to the pour point of -60 °C is possible.

Turmofluid TTO 24

This special low-temperature hydraulic oil maintains its viscosity even at varying temperatures. The viscosity is 26 mm2/s at +40 °C. This oil is thus suitable for the application in hydraulic systems, e. g. in airplanes. It is resistant to pressure, oxidation and cold, protects against corrosion and has high viscosity stability. The application in low temperatures up to the pour point of -60 °C is possible.

Guides/Latches

Turmotemp LM 801-50

This special lubricant combines the advantages of chemically and thermally stable perfluorinated base oils with the excellent properties of metal soaps. Under thermal or mechanical load, it flows back to the contact area, reduces wear to a minimum and is thus very suitable for the lubrication of guides and latches in the aviation industry. The temperature range is between -60 °C and +220 °C. The lubricant has a high chemical resistance to most solvents but not to fluorinated hydrocarbons.
