Cement industry

Tough conditions in building material production

High temperatures, continuous operation, loads by the ton and cement dust make for tough operating conditions in cement production. Speciality lubricants made by Klüber Lubrication are used for many machines and systems in this industrial sector.

In your facilities, the production of building materials goes on around the clock. Consequently, components such as the bearings and gears in your rotary kilns, mills, roller presses and crushers are incessantly subject to wear. Selecting the right lubricant is essential. A wrong choice may lead to premature failure of a component and in the worst case production stoppage entailing high maintenance costs and loss of turnover.

Many operators face the problem of abrasive cement dust entering the open gear drives. This accelerates wear on the tooth flanks and reduces the drive's service life. Our advanced transparent lubricants for open gears help remove this dust rapidly from the critical area to provide better wear protection.

High-performance lubricants for greater plant availability

With the right lubricant you can extend the service life of the lubricated components and increase the availability of your machines. Lower lubricant and energy consumption also have a positive effect on your operating costs.

High performance and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. We have developed a lubricant especially for gear rim/pinion drives on rotary kilns that is based on renewable raw materials - this product offers both excellent performance and biodegradability.
