Klüber Lubrication at the SMM 2012 in Hamburg

New, readily biodegradable speciality lubricants reduce environmental impact and offer high wear protection

Munich, 4 September 2012 - "Powerful, naturally" is Klüber Lubrication's motto for the SMM in hall A3, stand 309. The focus will be on environmentally sound, highly efficient speciality lubricants for ships, offshore rigs and other marine applications.

Product highlights at a glance:
The new, highly efficient hydraulic fluids of the Klüberbio LR 9 series bear the European Eco Label for environmentally sound products. With the Klüberbio LR 9 series Klüber Lubrication has succeeded in developing synthetic, readily biodegradable products which are at least as efficient as mineral oil based hydraulic fluids or even outperform them.

The new adhesive lubricant Klüberbio LG 39-700 is an open-gear lubricant with a highly viscous base oil made from renewable raw materials. It was especially developed for the lubrication of open gears and pinions driving large anchor winches and the tooth racks of jack-up systems.

The new, readily biodegradable special grease Klüberbio M 72-82 for rolling bearings is highly resistant to water, protects components against corrosion, and due to its good adhesion enables long relubrication intervals.

Besides the most recent product developments, Klüber Lubrication will be presenting further speciality lubricants for marine applications at the SMM 2012. These include the recently launched synthetic gear oil for thrusters and rudder propellers Klüberbio EG 2-150 as well as environmentally sound stern tube oils of the Klüberbio RM 2 series especially designed for the lubrication of bushes and shaft seals of fixed-pitch and controllable-pitch propellers. At the SMM 2012, the experts from Klüber Lubrication will be pleased to answer all questions visitors may have regarding the subject of tribology at the high seas.
