Operating viscosity of lubricants
The operating viscosity for oils and bases oil of lubricating greases from Klüber Lubrication can be determined approximately by means of the known kinematic viscosity at 40 °C and 100 °C. The viscosity of a lubricant (taking into account loads, speed, etc.) is one of the indicators for lube film formation protecting against friction and wear. Synthetic oils, special additives and various thickener concepts enable the lubricating film to be formed already at a lower, energy-efficient viscosity.
