Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90

Fully synthetic high-performance gear oil for excellent wear protection in rail vehicles

Munich, 18 September 2012 - The railway gear oil Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90 newly presented by Klüber Lubrication is a fully synthetic solution for the lubrication of gears specifically developed for the operating conditions encountered in railway operation. This high-performance gear oil offers high resistance to scuffing and micro-pitting as well as very good protection against wear on gear teeth and rolling bearings. The base oil's pronounced shear stability prevents the lubricant film from collapsing even under high loads, which is essential to protect both teeth and rolling bearings.

With its excellent resistance to ageing and oxidation, Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90 can attain a much longer service life than conventional gear lubricants based on mineral oil, enabling longer service intervals and lower maintenance costs. Furthermore, Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90 offers very good corrosion protection as well as excellent low-temperature behaviour.

Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90 can be used in spur, bevel and hypoid gears, especially with API GL4 or API GL5 requirements, and is approved by several gear manufacturers like IG Watteeuw, Voith Turbo, Siemens-Flender and by the German railway operator Deutsche Bahn.
