KlüberEfficiencySupport helps increase food safety and protect valuable resources

Munich, 12 September 2015 – Next to a lubricant that is optimally suited for the respective application, its proper handling is also essential for food safety. In particular within a sensitive area such as the food-processing industry, stringent requirements have to be met. Therefore, Klüber Lubrication offers a wide range of speciality lubricants and services for the food sector. In addition, KlüberEfficiencySupport can help protect valuable resources such as energy and water, thus helping to reduce operating costs.

“Klüber Lubrication is more than just a manufacturer of speciality lubricants”, explains Aldemir Oliveira, Global Market Manager Food Industry at Klüber Lubrication. “We as the specialist offer our customers a comprehensive lubrication package. Lubricant users benefit from our experience and tribological know-how and do not have to worry about finding the optimum solution for their particular application themselves."

The services and consulting services combined under the keyword KlüberEfficiencySupport are precisely tailored to the requirements and challenges of the respective customers – far exceeding the actual lubrication issue. In close cooperation with lubricant users, the tribology experts of Klüber work on the systematic optimisation of lubrication processes in the plant. This includes services such as the development of lubrication schedules, cleaning and relubrication, general inspections as well as lubricant and component analyses. All this is aimed at the optimal utilisation of the machines and know-how of the staff.

Another important offering from Klüber Lubrication is training tailored to the food-processing sector. Besides tribology basics and the properties of oils and greases, the lubrication of machine elements operating in the sensitive environment of the food-processing sector is at the focus of these KlüberCollege trainings. Participants learn about the optimisation of lubrication processes, inspections and maintenance, correct lubricant application and the prevention of typical errors such as excessive lubrication or lubricant starvation.
