Klüberfluid C-PG 17

Operational open gear lubricant for large girth gear drives

Product description

As an operator or manufacturer of large open gear drives, it is your priority to reduce downtime and minimize your total cost of operation. Open gears are subjected to challenging operating conditions like vibrations, dusty environments, high varying loads, speeds, and operating parameters. Our Klüberfluid C-PG 17 as a high-performance lubricant concept for open gear drives can support you in this aim. It is based on an innovative synthetic base oil and was developed to meet your increasing demands of modern day open gears.

The high viscosity index of Klüberfluid C-PG 17 provides the highest film thicknesses and thus the highest load carrying capacity, even if your gears are running at elevated temperatures. Klüberfluid C-PG 17 does not contain a diluent or solvent, but can still be pumped without a heating system at temperatures <10 °C. This means the full viscosity is achieved at the moment the product is applied to the gears, without waiting for the diluent to evaporate. Lower friction values compared to conventional open gear lubricants and higher lubricant film thicknesses provide more safety against fatigue damage and energy efficiency. This higher film thickness and lower friction coefficient has been proven to lower overall tooth flank temperatures, temperature differentials, and vibrations.

Compared to traditional open gear greases, Klüberfluid C-PG 17 can reduce the lubricant consumption, extends the life of your gears and optimizes your maintenance.

Klüberfluid C-PG 17 exceeds the requirements of ANSI/AGMA 6014-B15 Annex D and FLSmidth Minerals Gear Set Lubrication Guidelines.

Klüberfluid C-PG 17 is free from bitumen, solvents, heavy metals and chlorine.

Benefits for your application

  • Lower Total Cost of Operation

    • Very high viscosity provides the highest load carrying capacity even at elevated temperatures

    • Lower friction values provide more protection against fatigue damage and help to safe energy

    • Lower consumption rates

  • Improved maintenance and safety

    • Pumpable without the use of diluents or solvents due to very good low-temperature behavior

    • Easier inspection of the tooth flanks during operation due to the light-colored and transparent lubricant
