From 15 to 17 October 2019 the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) brought together top researchers and industry experts to exchange experiences and know how about the newest gear developments.

Klüber Lubrication took part in the technical session “Efficiency, Lubrication, Noise and Vibration” with an exciting talk by Matthias Pfadt, Application Engineer and Power Transmission Specialist. He presented our Hydro Lubricants concept and highlighted the benefits of this innovative technology in comparison to a conventional polyglycol (PG)-based synthetic gear lubricant. Among the main advantages of Hydro Lubricants are their high thermal and electric conductivity, superlow friction values and sustainability aspects.

In the speech, Matthias showed that key challenges with the innovative Hydro Lubes technology like corrosion protection, seal compatibility and load carrying capacity have been solved. The Hydro Lubricant technology is suitable for gear box lubrication and offers the design engineer a more sustainable and energy efficient solution.

Klüber Lubrication offers samples ready to test in a broad viscosity range for industrial and automotive gear boxes with a high demand for cooling and energy savings.

The audience showed highest interest in the Hydro Lubes in the Q & A session after the presentation and there was an excellent response in the social networks as well.
