Valves, slides, taps and flaps - all control the flow of media through the pipelines. They can be found in all industries, municipalities and households. Only a few of them can do without a lubricant reducing wear and ensuring proper function of the components. The most suitable lubricant for your application depends on many factors: type of material, type of friction, load, kind of motion, speed, temperature, pressure and the valve lifetime. Additionally, most valves and fittings are subject to guidelines, standards and legal requirements.
Lubricants for drinking water valves have to meet the country guidelines, be resistant to media, provide good sealing effect and offer good tactile properties at all temperatures. When used in contact with fuel gases, high media resistance is of particular importance. For oxygen installations, exclusively certified lubricants have to be used for safety.
