The maritime industry has trusted Klüberplex AG 11-461 and Klüberplex AG 11-462 to protect steel wire ropes, slew gears and open gears from corrosion for many years. These dependable, heavy-duty greases can be used to protect harbor cranes, too. Harbor cranes, like any other maritime equipment, need exceptional lubrication to operate safely, reliably and responsibly.
Adhesive greases extend equipment life and increase spreader bar reliability
Klüberplex AG 11-461 and Klüberplex AG 11-462 reliably protect ship-to-shore (STS) and rubber tired gantry (RTG) crane spreader bars against wear and corrosion. These specialty greases:
- Extend the life of the equipment, including slide pads
- Increase crane reliability through superior load-carrying capacity and adhesion
- Ensure clean handling and less maintenance thanks to a white, graphite-free formulation
- Reduce the shuttering effect during spreader bar extension and retraction
- Decrease maintenance and overhaul of spreader bars
Industry-leading performance reduces operating costs and environmental impact
Constantly exposed to an extreme range of environments, crane lubrication must stand up to the elements. Weather exposure can cause grease loss, which increases lubricant usage, raises operating costs and can also cause environmental problems at ports.
With high water spray-off of less than 4% and water wash-out resistance, these best-in-class greases reduce lubricant consumption and, in turn, can reduce operating costs compared to graphite-based lubricants. With no drip down, Klüberplex AG 11-462 reliably adheres to components, even in direct sun and in tropical regions, which improves safety and reduces its environmental impact on port waterways.
