ISO VG 220 industrial gear oils are necessary for the seamless operation of heavy duty, industrial gearboxes. Weight refers to the oil’s viscosity.
ISO VG 220 gear oil has a midpoint kinematic viscosity of 220 mm2/s, also referred to as centistokes (cSt). AGMA 5 lubricants have a minimum viscosity of 198 mPa.s and a maximum viscosity of 242 mPa.s. These numbers refer to the standard testing mechanisms used to determine an oil’s resistance to flow (viscosity).
