Speciality lubricants for extreme conditions at sea

Reliable equipment operation at sea is extremely important. At the same time, marine conditions are extremely tough on ships and offshore equipment. By selecting the right lubricant, you will obtain long relubrication intervals and trouble-free operation.

We will support you - by providing Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) and other high-performance speciality lubricants. 

Conditions at sea can be tough: cold, heat, wind and waves, salt water and high mechanical loads incessantly impact moving parts on board ships. Under these circumstances, standard lubricants quickly come up against their limits. Failure of a crane, a winch or a drive motor entails high costs by causing delays and requiring expensive repair.

Furthermore, as a shipowner you are subject to ever stricter environmental protection regulations. In the USA, for example, EALs have been mandatory since late 2013.

For all these different requirements, you need a speciality lubricant manufacturer to rely upon at all times. For this reason, our lubricants - no matter if fully synthetic ones or EALs - are thoroughly tested. With these products you can lubricate your components reliably and extend component life while complying with legal requirements, whilst you reduce your operating costs in the long term.

Several friction points - one solution

Many of our lubricants can be used for a variety of lubrication tasks. This helps you reduce the complexity of logistics process and save time, money and storage capacity. A global network of production and sales companies ensures that all our products will reach you worldwide.

Close cooperation between OEMs and operators

Because of their numerous benefits, our speciality lubricants are recommended and used by well-known manufacturers, for example for heavily loaded equipment such as anchor winches, generator bearings, tunnel gearboxes of bow thrusters or propeller shaft seals.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs)
  • Reliable wear protection
  • Longer relubrication intervals and less maintenance
  • Longer component life
  • Lower operating costs
