Chain lubrication with cleaning effect

New high-temperature chain oil reduces wear and decreases energy consumption.

Munich, April 2011 - Klüber Lubrication launches Klübersynth CHM 2-100, a new high-temperature chain oil for drive, lift and conveyor chains. Among the special oil's distinctive features are its thermal stability and low residue formation as well as the capacity to dissolve existing residues. Klübersynth CHM 2-100 therefore overcomes the problem of conventional chain oils which evaporate under high temperatures and form lacquer-type residues. These residues impede the supply of fresh oil to the friction points and increase friction. This in turn leads to higher energy consumption and increased chain wear. With Klübersynth CHM 2-100, maintenance intervals can be extended, downtime reduced and the plant's energy efficiency increased. At the same time, the new chain oil contributes significantly to preserving the chains' value.

This special oil is designed for temperatures up to 250 °C. With its new ester base oil concept, it shows a high oxidation resistance and low evaporation losses. The product's good lubricity and anticorrosive effect enable long chain life with continuous minimum-quantity lubrication. It increases operational safety and extends the service life of machines.

Klübersynth CHM 2-100 can be used for all drive, lift and conveyor chains at high temperatures up to approx. 250 °C and can be applied, for example, in coating installations (radiators, white goods), in the insulating materials industry (glass and rock wool), in conveyors (automotive industry) and driers (gypsum boards). Klübersynth CHM 2-100 is NSF H2-registered and thus suitable for use in areas in the food-processing industry where direct contact with the food products can be excluded.
