The areas of application for oil-lubricated gears are as many and varied as their designs: Spur and bevel gears, planetary gears and worm gears, compact geared motors and large gears. They can be found in the heavy industry, in production plants in the process industry, as well as in the food and pharmaceutical industries, in robots, in wind turbines, railway or marine applications. What they all have in common: Ever increasing requirements in terms of transmitted power and torques – often with increasingly compact designs, smaller sizes and lower weights. New gearbox designs and materials, better surface treatment and innovative production techniques make these improvements in the power-to-weight ratio of gearboxes possible. At the same time, this increases the demands on gear oils in these applications. They must provide reliable lasting protection for all gear components, even under difficult conditions.

Exactly the right gear oil for the highest requirements

Klüber Lubrication develops and manufactures mineral oil-based and synthetic gear oils which are precisely tailored to these requirements. They offer the particular advantages of outstanding protection against wear, scuffing and micro-pitting, optimised friction behaviour and a wide operating temperature range. In addition, the specialty lubricants offer high ageing and oxidation stability as well as low foam and residue formation. Customers benefit from a longer service life and, as a consequence, reduced lubricant consumption. This saves costs for gear oil and disposal, increases productivity and reduces environmental impact.

More than a gear oil: This is how specialty lubricants protect gears, bearings and seals

A key criterion for gear oils, and one that is decisive for reliable long-term operation, is the optimisation of the specialty lubricants for all components of a gear unit. To this end, Klüber Lubrication offers special services along with its gear oils:

  • KlüberComp Lube Technology
    Klüber Lubrication gear oils with KlüberComp Lube Technology are developed and tested with a holistic consideration of all gearbox components. They deliver maximum performance on the gearing itself, in the rolling bearings used, and in the seals.
  • Lube&Seal for oil-lubricated gear units
    As a company of the Freudenberg Group, Klüber Lubrication works in close cooperation with the technology specialist for sealing technology Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. This has resulted in Lube&Seal, a unique service with innovative products for the optimisation of sealing systems and lubricants in power transmission technology. This coordinated approach can reliably prevent leakage.

Certified quality – service-proven in industry and practice

Klüber Lubrication offers mineral-based and synthetic high-performance gear oils which often far exceed minimum requirements such as those of DIN 51517-3 CLP. This also includes H1-certified gear oils for food processing as well as biodegradable gear oils. Klüber Lubrication gear oils have numerous OEM approvals, and leading gear manufacturers recommend them for initial lubrication and use them for relubrication. Our specialty lubricants are developed in close cooperation with industry and users and are put through extensive tests and trials in Klüber Lubrication’s in-house test facilities, with a focus on customer requirements and applications. This results in perfectly tailored gear oils for standard and special gears, which combine excellent protection for all components and long service lives with maximum efficiency and economy.

Better performance, greater sustainability

The focus of R&D at Klüber Lubrication is on gear oils that minimise friction and improve the efficiency of an application, combined with ever increasing protection and service life. In combination with environmentally compatible, biodegradable ingredients, this leads to greater sustainability, energy efficiency, resource conservation and environmental protection. At the same time, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the operator of a plant is reduced as a result of longer service lives and lower lubricant consumption.
