High-performance lubricants and customer-oriented services

KlüberEfficiencySupport helps users save energy and avoid downtime

Munich, 22 July 2014 - On a daily basis, countless large and small cogs and wheels can be seen spinning in industrial installations worldwide. Innumerable gears, bearings and compressors work incessantly in all industries, on assembly belts, baking lines, escalators, in cars and trains. This means not only a continuous flow of production, transport and assembly, but a constant consumption of energy and constant wear on components as well.

Lubrication specialist Klüber Lubrication developed KlüberEfficiencySupport, a comprehensive range of customer-oriented services reaching far beyond simple lubricant recommendations and aiming at identifying and transferring existing optimisation potentials into practice. Two important parts of KlüberEfficiencySupport are KlüberEnergy and KlüberMaintain.

KlüberEnergy – Reduce energy costs and protect the environment
In addition to forming a major part in operating costs, energy consumption also negatively affects the carbon dioxide footprint of a company. In every set of gears and every bearing which keep our industries going day after day, friction is generated – whereby valuable energy is lost.

With KlüberEnergy Services, which are an important element of the KlüberEfficiencySupport programme, Klüber Lubrication offers comprehensive advice on the tribological systems used in the processes. Prior to discussing energy savings potentials of the applications and making them transparent, all relevant factors are thoroughly analysed. The customer receives a clear report on relevant parameters like cost savings, carbon dioxide footprint and energy consumption.

"The results can be transferred to similiar applications in the company to multiply savings", explains Alexander Dörner, Head of Service Business Development at Klüber Lubrication. "It can clearly be seen how a lower energy consumption can benefit the environment and at the same time reduce operating costs in the long term."

KlüberMaintain - The right lubricant at the right place

Maintenance and repair of machines and installations in a company is key to ensure continuous operation without downtime. KlüberMaintain aims at optimising maintenance operations in a company and ensuring that machines run reliably and efficiently for a long time.

KlüberMaintain encompasses the professional generation of a comprehensive plant lubrication chart covering all lubrication points for optimum lubrication processes, including ideal maintenance intervals and prevention of excessive or starving lubrication with the right lubricant amount and application method for each lubrication point.

As a part of KlüberMaintain, the experts from Klüber Lubrication analyse all machines in the plant, register all lubrication points and lubricants used and create a plant lubrication chart on this basis. They also include optimum lubricant quantities and application methods for every lubrication point. KlüberMaintain significantly contributes to preventing expensive machine failures and downtime during maintenance operations, especially when production capacities are highly utilised. Savings and improvements obtained become measureable and are shown in a clear overview.
