Are you a manufacturer or operator of open gear drives, jack-up lifting systems or other on-board equipment that is frequently in contact with sea water? In that case you are likely to be interested in obtaining an eco-friendly, high-performance operating lubricant.
Our Klüberbio LG 39-700 N is a high-performance grease with a new type of base oil and additive package. It combines very good eco-friendliness with high load-carrying capacity, good antiwear and anticorrosive effect and excellent adhesion to surfaces.
The high-viscosity base oil of Klüberbio LG 39-700 N comes from 100 % renewable resources. Klüberbio LG 39-700 N complies with the requirements for classification as an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) in terms of biodegradability, toxicity and bioaccumulation, as defined by the US Environmental Protection Agency for the "2013 Vessel General Permit".
Due to the lubricant's excellent low-temperature behaviour, it can be pumped in centralised lubricating systems down to -30 °C and sprayed even at 0 °C. These positive product characteristics enable you to use the lubricants over a wider temperature range than what is common with mineral-oil-based greases of the same base oil viscosity.
Klüberbio LG 39-700 N enables a further reduction of more than 50 % in lubricant consumption in jack-up lifting systems if spray application is used. This will further reduce your operating costs and is beneficial to the environment.
Benefits for your application
Complies with the requirements for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 Vessel General Permit
