High-performance bearing lubrication for stenter frames and steamers

Versatile long-term grease with excellent corrosion protection at high temperature

Munich, 12 November 2015 – The bearings in stenter frames and textile finishing machines are subject to particular high stresses arising from the operating environment. While stenter frame bearings are exposed to extreme heat over a long period, they are additionally subjected to steam and aggressive media during in the finishing steamers. The new speciality lubricant Klübertemp GR AR 555 was developed to match precisely these applications. It excels not only in high-temperature applications due to its evaporation stability, but offers high-performance corrosion protection as well.

"Bearing failures are a frequent cause of costly downtime in the textile industry," explains Christian Forster, Market Manager Textile Industry at Klüber Lubrication. "With Klübertemp GR AR 555, we have succeeded in developing a versatile speciality lubricant which considerably reduces bearing failure risk and significantly extends relubrication intervals."

Klübertemp GR AR 555 is designed for use at operating temperatures up to 250 degrees Celsius and resistant to aggressive media. The white, synthetic long-term grease is based on a perfluorinated polyether oil (PFPE) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and is neutral to most elastomers and plastics used for seals.
