Higher productivity for continuous casting machines


Klüberplex HB 98-601 is an innovative rolling bearing grease for high temperatures and high loads that can be used in rolling and plain bearing applications. Developed over a period of three years in cooperation with a leading company in the steel industry, this innovative solution from Klüber Lubrication has already proven its worth in many applications. In this video, Özgür Ergün, Head of Global Steel Industry at Klüber Lubrication, explains the many benefits of using the right lubricant in a steel mill.

The challenge

High efficiency in production is becoming increasingly important in global competition. First and most important is avoiding downtime - because every system failure has consequences. Machines with a long service life and low repair requirements are another decisive factor. In addition, saving on the use of resources is becoming a key factor. This enables companies to reduce costs considerably while improving their sustainability balance.

Machine breakdowns significantly reduce productivity in steelworks - they always result in a monetary loss. Such breakdowns are often the result of bearing damage.

Stable production and avoidance of downtimes

With Klüberplex HB 98-601, difficulties can be prevented: The synthetic high-temperature grease, which has a high load-carrying capacity, has been adapted to high loads and temperatures and is therefore ideally suited for centralized lubrication systems.

Easy machine maintenance and extended intervals

Systems often have very short maintenance intervals, which involves a great deal of effort. This can result in high costs for machine servicing by external companies.

Steel manufacturers can prevent this by long-term lubrication with Klüberplex HB 98-601: The life cycles of machines and components are significantly extended, and processes such as product changes are facilitated.

Reducing the consumption of resources

Steel production is generally associated with a high consumption of resources and lubricants. The consequences in terms of costs and ecological sustainability are obvious.

By using Klüberplex HB 98-601, however, companies benefit from a significant reduction in energy consumption and lubricant quantities. The bottom line is increased added value through improved efficiency and performance.

Advantages for your application

Extended component service life based on an optimized lubricant supply

  • from low to extremely high temperatures, even under high loads
  • due to good pumpability and prevention of solidification in lubrication systems

Improves sustainability and helps to reduce costs, made possible by
significantly reduced consumption and therefore also reduced waste

  • Good water resistance and therefore less water contamination
  • Significantly reduced maintenance requirements for lubricant supply lines
