New special oil for high-speed knitting machines

Less residues and wear for higher production efficiency

Munich, 12 November 2015 – Together with a leading manufacturer of large circular knitting machines, Klüber Lubrication has developed the new needle and sinker oil Klüber Silvertex HS 68. The new special oil significantly reduces wear and deposits on the heavily loaded, sensitive needles and sinkers. As a consequence, operation is much less liable to disruption and the need for maintenance is reduced, contributing to higher efficiency in production.

"With Klüber Silvertex HS 68, speed factors of 2100 or higher can be attained, which in a 30-inch machine means 70 revolutions per minute," explains Christian Forster, Market Manager Textile Industry at Klüber Lubrication. "Thus, a daily output of more than 1500 kilogrammes of single knit fabric is possible with this product, leading to significantly higher plant economy."

Klüber Silvertex HS 68 for modern circular and flat-bed knitting machines is compatible with elastane fibres and commonly used synthetic fibres as well as neutral towards conventional sealing materials and plastics. The high-speed oil protects needles, sinkers, couplings, needle cams and cylinders, dials and sinker rings reliable against wear. It has been tested and approved by a leading high-speed knitting machine manufacturer.
