Gear oils for high power densities

KlüberComp Lube Technology

Munich, August 2011 - The continuing increase in power density found in industrial gears today entails ever higher loads and temperatures within limited design dimensions. In addition, these gears are expected to offer longer operating times, higher reliability and a higher energy efficiency. Klüber Lubrication has developed gear oils specifically for these requirements. These lubricants excel in terms of good ageing resistance, load bearing capacity and low friction coefficients, but not only that: As a speciality lubricants manufacturer, Klüber Lubrication is using a far more comprehensive approach. Under the umbrella of "KlüberComp Lube Technology", the company now combines its expertise in gear oils. Besides the development of high-performance products, high manufacturing standards worldwide and thorough consultation regarding lubricant selection and application are also part of the KlüberComp Lube Technology program. This enables gear manufacturers and users to make full use of the know-how available at Klüber Lubrication and thus to optimise the operational reliability of their gears and machinery.

KlüberComp Lube Technology takes into account tribological requirements to be met by industrial gears, for example scuffing or micropitting resistance, or wear and fatigue protection in rolling bearings, but also the challenges of material pairings such as steel/plastic, steel/elastomer or steel/bronze. Developed in close cooperation with leading OEMs, Klüber Lubrication has tuned its gear oils to specific material pairings and loads with the aid of sophisticated additive packages.

All gear oil series - no matter if based on mineral, ester, polyalphaolefin or polyglycol oil - have been subjected to numerous tests on Klüber's in-house test rigs in order to attain a maximum of performance.

The KlüberComp Lube Technology program is rounded off by maintenance and repair services, use-oil analyses and the optimisation of specific applications as well as individual training courses and basic seminars.
