Innovation in open gear lubrication: Klübersynth OA 98-15000


This specialty lubricant is based on the innovative SLIBF (Solid Lube Integrated Base Fluid) technology which helps maintain open gears better. It offers operators benefits such as easier inspection due to the light colour, better operational reliability due to good sprayability and enhanced durability of tooth flanks due to high wear protection. The lubricant can be applied on the open gear drives by immersion, paddle wheel, force-feed and spray lubrication methods.

The New Klübersynth OA 98-15000: Operational lubricant for large gear drives

Open gears are subjected to challenging operating conditions like vibrations, dusty environments, high varying loads and other operational parameters.

Therefore, reliable operation of the open gear drive and occupational safety have the highest priority for you as the person responsible.

Klübersynth OA 98-15000 offers you optimal support. This special lubricant based on the SLIBF concept (Solid Lubricant Integrated Base Fluid) was developed precisely to meet the high demands of open gear drives.

It provides excellent adhesion, good film formation, less splashing from the gears and reducing leakages from the gear casing. This results in better maintenance practices and increased safety. It also provides good pumpability at lower temperatures and offers low resistance to pumping the lubricant.

Klübersynth OA 98-15000 provides excellent wear protection under high loads and even under higher peripheral speeds.

How does Klübersynth OA 98-15000 add to your sustainability goals?

With the use of Klübersynth OA 98-15000 the amount of lubricant used for the lubrication of open gear drives is reduced dramatically. This brings down the carbon foot prints on production. With the reduction in lubricant consumption the used lubricant disposal also comes down.

The lubricant Klübersynth OA 98-15000 also provides excellent lubrication and brings down metal to metal contact. This results in reduced energy consumption on the machinery adding to your sustainability goals. 

Benefits for your application

  • Enhanced tooth flank life due to very good wear protection
  • High base oil viscosity and integrated solid lubricants for reduced scuffing and pitting
  • Reduced consumption and disposal costs due to efficient lubrication
  • No settling in the drum and reduced nozzle clogging due to the integration of the solid lubricants in the base fluid
  • Easier inspection of the tooth flanks during operation due to the light-coloured solid lubricant
  • The reduced tendency for leakage around the gear guard due to the adhesive nature of the product
