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 39-701 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 39-701 N comes from 100 % renewable resources.
Klüberbio LG 39-701 N complies with the 2013 Vessel General Permit requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in terms of biodegradability, minimal toxicity and bio-accumulation to be met by Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants.
Due to the lubricant's excellent low-temperature behaviour, it can be pumped in centralised lubricating systems down to -30 °C and sprayed even below 0 °C. These positive product characteristics enable you to use the lubricant over a wider temperature range than is common with mineral-oil-based greases of the same base oil viscosity.
Klüberbio LG 39-701 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
