Moving ahead together. Less downtime and more efficiency for the chemical industry - with solutions from Klüber Lubrication

Extreme conditions found in the chemical industry require special solutions, be it for cooling towers, loading arms or heat transfer systems. Specialty lubricants for the chemical industry help to increase the availability of production equipment, provide additional protection to assets and allow extended service life of mechanical components. They are designed to withstand high pressures, vacuum conditions, cryogenic environments, extreme temperatures and aggresive media. In addition, lubricants from Klüber Lubrication can bring energy savings and even increase the safety of operations. Many chemical processes involve gases of varying compositions, which can incur a risk of interference or reaction with the lubricant. Klüber Lubrication analyses your application and its specific requirements in order to provide you with competent advice for the selection of the right specialty lubricant. 

Lubricating your way to more efficient and reliable operations

Solutions for high performance and safety
Tailor-made perfluorinated polyether (PFPE) lubricants for the chemical industry

PFPE lubricants from Klüber Lubrication are recommended because of their resistance to extreme temperatures, chemical inertness and their stability to oxidation. Our PFPE greases offer good lubrication, additional protection against shock loads and unrivalled stability for numerous applications found in the chemical industry. Being extremely inert where no element of the molecule is available for reaction to take place, it provides excellent high-temperature performance and makes PFPE extremely useful in the presence of highly reactive chemicals such as corrosives, acids and liquid oxygen.

Low evaporation loss, low vapor pressure, wide temperature range, chemical inertness, non-flammable and excellent material compatibility

Refineries: Energy Efficiency
Cooling towers, gearboxes and water circulation systems

Non-distilled industrial water contains mineral salts that bond with metal, especially when it is hot. These deposits, usually calcium and magnesium compounds, put a strain on the operating efficiency of heat exchangers, cooling towers and other water-wetted equipment. If not properly treated, sediment, sludge, and scale cause a loss of efficiency and increase in energy consumption.

We offer a full line of degreasers and descalers to maintain the cleanliness and efficiency of your cooling tower systems. Converting your cooling tower gearboxes from a conventional mineral oil to a premium synthetic gear oil may save you up to 6% in energy cost.

Rubber and Tire Processing: Energy Efficiency
Gearboxes on agitators, conveyors and mixers

The rubber processing and tire industry is a major user of industrial gearboxes. Most of those gearboxes are exposed to a high level of contamination and significant shock loads. Klüber Lubrication offers special gear oils that minimise contamination of your gearbox application. Converting your gearboxes from a conventional mineral oil to a premium Klüber Lubrication synthetic gear oil may save you up to 6 % in energy costs.

Fertilizers and Pesticides: Open gear lubricants
Open gears on dryers, cooling drums, scrubber and grinding mills

Klüber Lubrication offers a wide range of products and services designed specifically for open gears. These include priming agents, running-in fluids, repair compounds, cleaners and operational lubricants. We offer on-site services like open gear inspection, running-in procedures for newly installed gear sets, gear cleaning and gear repair. Most of these services are performed without requiring a system shutdown. Additionally, our new-technology and transparent open gear lubricants allow our customers to inspect their open gears during operation, benefit of the highest wear protection and not to worry about their spray system or drain lines to be clogged.
