High temperatures and production speeds, individual designs and the shortest possible production stoppages: In the glass industry, machines must meet the highest requirements in terms of efficiency and productivity. An important role here is played by high-performance lubricants from Klüber Lubrication: They reduce friction even at temperatures of up to 250 degrees and provide reliable protection against wear. With low lubricant consumption and minimum residues, they ensure longer relubrication intervals and cleaner machines.
Klüber Lubrication develops and produces specialty lubricants for the glass industry, which can be used at different friction points in individual section (IS) machines alone, via a centralised lubricating system. They help extend the service lives of gears and bearings, serve to lubricate grippers, mould holders and feeders and are used on the gob distributors for the distribution of the liquid glass gobs and for the lubrication of plunger mechanisms. Top-name OEMs recommend lubricants made by Klüber Lubrication for use in their glass manufacturing machines right from the start, because they enable long maintenance intervals , prevent unscheduled plant downtime and help to extend machine lives.
With a wide product portfolio, Klüber Lubrication covers all requirements to be met by specialty lubricants for glass and bottle production. Thanks to the selective combination of high-quality base oils and additives, they deliver the best possible performance along with low evaporation losses, optimum regeneration of the lubricant (oil regeneration effect) and minimum residue formation at the same time. The result is high productivity thanks to low cleaning requirements and long relubrication intervals. UV indicators enable application control and hence the best possible lubrication with optimum lubricant quantities. As a result, operators and maintenance engineers are able to reduce the overall costs of maintenance and spare parts expenditure.
For food-grade glass products, Klüber Lubrication offers a range of specialty lubricants for the cold end, with NSF-H1 registration, and in accordance with the specifications for the production of glass containers to be classified as halal or kosher. What comes to bear here is the fact Klüber Lubrication uses Reach-certified raw materials for its lubricants. These safe raw materials and the absence of critical additives requiring labelling ensure both enhanced occupational safety (workplace safety) when handling the specialty lubricants as well as compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Our six sites certified in accordance with ISO 21469 around the world ensure that H1 lubricants for the cold end are continuously manufactured to the strictest requirements and can be delivered globally.
Klüber Lubrication specialty lubricants for use in the production of bottle and container glass are service-proven in numerous plants and with leading glass manufacturers. Global production plants and worldwide distribution ensure the availability of our lubricants in consistently high quality. To this end, our lubricant experts maintain close working relationships with manufacturers of machinery and users in order to continuously improve our products and develop new solutions. This results in perfectly tailored, worldwide available synthetic lubricants for demanding tribological systems in glass production, for even higher production output, with less residue and better regeneration effects, with higher temperature stability and even longer relubrication intervals.
When it comes to the development of our lubricants, we place great importance on sustainability and environmental compatibility. Low consumption, long relubrication intervals and low amounts of residue thanks to better regeneration of the lubricants means a reduced impact on the environment and also less maintenance work and costs of disposal. Non-critical raw materials and environmentally compatible specialty lubricants for the glass industry also help to improve plant safety in every respect and minimise health risks.
