Eco-compatible multi-purpose grease for rolling and plain bearings

Excellent performance even with high temperatures

Rolling and plain bearings in cranes, fairleads, winches and rudder systems of ships are often exposed to extremely harsh environmental conditions. Thus, the requirements to be met by the lubricants used for the bearings are very high. With Klüberbio BM 32-142, Klüber Lubrication developed a high-performance lubricating grease for such maritime applications. The new multi-purpose grease complies with the requirements of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 Vessel General Permit and can thereforealso be used for components in contact with sea water.


"Our new high-performance lubricating grease contains special additives which reduce wear, protect against corrosion and enable smooth operation even at extremely low temperatures", explains Dirk Fabry, Business Development Manager Marine at Klüber Lubrication. "Moreover, its readily biodegradable base oil ensures high environmental compatibility. This makes Klüberbio BM 32-142 a real multi-purpose product for the marine industry."


The new grease can be used in a wide temperature range from minus 40 °C to plus 120 °C. Besides its excellent corrosion and wear protection, the new operational lubricant offers a very good load-carrying capacity, thus extending the components' service life and maintenance intervals.
