Reliable production and high efficiency with Klüberplex HB 98-601

Stable production, long machine service life and reduced resource requirements: when manufacturing companies combine these three things, they lay the foundations for sustained economic success. Klüberplex HB 98-601 is the lubricant that supports these goals by ensuring reliability and excellent performance.

Stable production, long machine service life and reduced resource requirements: when manufacturing companies combine these three things, they lay the foundations for sustained economic success. Klüberplex HB 98-601 is the lubricant that supports these goals by ensuring reliability and excellent performance.

Increased productivity for continuous casting machines

Klüberplex HB 98-601 is an innovative high temperature rolling bearing grease to prevent clogging of the lubrication lines. Developed over three years in cooperation with a leading steel firm, this innovative solution from Klüber Lubrication has now proven effective many times over. Özgür Ergün, Head of Global Steel Industry at Klüber Lubrication, explains the many benefits that are offered when using the right lubricant in a steel plant.

The challenges

Excellent production efficiency is becoming increasingly important in global competition. The most important thing is to avoid downtime – because standstills always have consequences. It is also vital that machinery has a long service life and requires minimum repairs. Saving resources is also pivotal.

These factors not only allow companies to significantly reduce their costs, but also improve their ecological footprint. Machinery failures significantly reduce productivity in steel plants – always resulting in a financial loss.

 

Stable production and avoidance of downtime

Klüberplex HB 98-601 makes this easier: the synthetic high-temperature rolling bearing grease has an excellent load-carrying capacity and has been designed for heavy loads and temperatures, making it ideal for improving central lubrication systems.

Easy machine maintenance and extended intervals

Systems often have extremely short maintenance intervals, involving a great deal of effort. When contractors are responsible for servicing machines, this can be very expensive.

Steel makers can avoid this by means of long-term lubrication using Klüberplex HB 98-601: this significantly extends the life cycles of machines and components while simplifying processes such as product changeovers.

Reducing demand for resources

Steel production usually entails massive consumption of resources and lubricants. The consequences of this in terms of both costs and environmental sustainability are obvious.

When using Klüberplex HB 98-601, however, companies benefit from considerably reduced demand for both energy and lubricant consumption. Ultimately, this results in increased value creation thanks to improved efficiency and performance.

Benefits for your application

Extended component life based on optimised lubricant supply

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

Improves sustainability and helps reduce costs, enabled by

  • the significantly reduced consumption and thus also reduced waste
  • the good water resistance and thus also lower water contamination
  • minimum maintenance required on the lubricant supply lines
