The requirements to be met by roller bearings are as many and varied as their applications. For design engineers it is of benefit if they can include the right lubricating grease or oil in their considerations when designing the rolling bearing. This ensures that the unit comprised of the bearing and specialty lubricant fulfils the overall conditions and that the sealing materials and surrounding media are compatible with each other.
As a development partner for industry and in close partnership with customers worldwide, Klüber Lubrication develops specialty lubricants for a multitude of applications: High-temperature and low-temperature greases for industrial applications which deliver low friction and good protection against wear at operating temperatures of -80 °C to 300 °C, high-speed lubricants like greases and oils which enable a long roller bearing service life, for example in high-speed spindle bearings in machine tools,or specialty lubricants for heavy-duty applications.
For Klüber Lubrication, sustainability, environmental compatibility and compliance with statutory requirements are particularly important. We therefore develop biodegradable lubricants for applications where contact with the environment cannot be ruled out. For the food segment and pharmaceuticals industry, too, Klüber Lubrication offers specialty lubricants. These are registered as NSF H1/H2 and therefore have approval for applications in the production, transport and packaging of food. The specialty lubricants combine compliance with the relevant industry standards with optimum smooth-running characteristics and enable the bearings to provide long-lasting service.
