For high viscosity oils used in gear boxes and mining truck wheel motors and differentials, we have designed a filtration system and flushing procedure which utilizes the existing oil unless it is beyond it's useful life. This gear flushing unit is equiped with pre-heaters and reservoir to provide a hot flush of the gearbox and continuous 3 micron filtration of the circulated oil which will remove the fine particulate and moisture as well as the sludge and varnish built up on the components and sump. Removing this contamination by circulating clean oil minimizes the chance of damaging bearings etc. than if a solvent or similar process were used. Each of the elements used can retain 12 to 15 pounds of dirt and metal particulate. To see the amount of ferrous metal (and resulting ISO) that typically is removed by this filter please click here youtube
You can follow the following steps for flushing the gear boxes: It is always the best practice to flush with the same oil, that is to be used for operation. First, drain out the used oil and ensure that accumulated muck in the sump is thoroughly cleaned manually if required Charge gear box with fresh Oil, up to 25-30% of its oil tank capacity OR as an alternative you can use the Kluber flushing oil. Churn it for around one to two hours, without load (No load condition) Drain out this oil thoroughly. Clean up internals, including the filters etc Charge Fresh Gear Oil to run in full load.

Hello, Ifound Exxon System Cleaner worked well for us. You mix in 5-10% a day or so before you want to perform your oil change and then just draain it out. Depending on the level of sludge etc you might need to drain it off sooner and mabey complete the process several times. cheers.....
First of all which oil are you using? mineral oil or synthetic oil. You can contact Kluber engineer as they have very good flushing oils. Or you can also flush the gear box using the same rade of oil that you will be using. but remmenber the compatibility.donot flush with different grade of oil
DO NOT FLUSH YOUR GEARS! Modern practice is to avoid low visc oils that will dilute the new oil. Apply a detergent system cleaner few days before the oil drain. We distribute such a product for N.A. contact me at DSC@motorenew.com
Do not flush your gearboxes! clean them with a system cleaner type of detergent for few days before changing the oil. It removes sludge and varnish, and leaves the gearbox clean when you drain the oil to fill then with the clean oil. No risks of dilutions or mixtures. Let me know if you need help to find the system cleaner.
You can perform a Neutra flush. Schaeffer Manufacturing makes Neutra which is primarily designed as a fuel system cleaner but is powerful enough for gear boxes, hydraulics or many other systems. The tech data has mix ratios listed depending on the system. If you want the tech data email me firstname.lastname@example.org
We have developed a mobile flushing unit which is designed for high viscosity oils(up to ISO 680)and cold climates. Using hot oil and 3 micron absolute filtration the gearbox is cleaned well below the cleanliness of new oil eliminating the cost of oil changes and discarding the old oil.
