The faster a bearing turns the more potential heat it generates. Some bearings can rotate up to 10,000 rpms. At that speed, you need a lubricating grease that is incredibly stable. If a bearing becomes unstable at that speed, it has a high likelihood of catastrophic failure.
For more than 30 years, Klüber Lubrication has answered the need for speed with our line of ISOFLEX greases. These shear stable greases hold a stable viscosity at low and high temperatures and high speed, ensuring a consistent performance and reduced power consumption.
But as automotive and spindle tool manufacturers continue to push the limits of speed and temperature, lubricants need to advance at the same pace.
Enter the aptly named line of greases, Klüberspeed. While ISOFLEX greases have a top speed factor of over 1 million mm/min, Klüberspeed greases have a top speed factor of over 2 million mm/min. (Speed factor is a term that helps define the relationship of the speed at which a bearing rotates with the size of the bearing.)
Built for the most extreme speed conditions, Klüberspeed greases offer the following benefits:
- Very good water resistance and an anticorrosive effect that protects bearings against premature failure and minimizes maintenance costs
- Long-term success at high speeds
- Shorter running-in of spindle bearings
- Low starting torque enables problem-free operation and energy savings also at low temperatures
When it comes to lubricating high speed, high temperature applications, not all greases are created equal. Don’t risk equipment failure by settling for an inadequate lubricant.
Klüber Lubrication has created two lines of specialty lubricants – ISOFLEX and Klüberspeed – to handle your extreme conditions and keep your operation running smoother, longer. Contact a Klüber Lubrication expert today for more information on which solution can best serve your operations.
