Klüber Lubrication Introduces Gear Grease And Oils That Protect Against Wear And Corrosion

LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Sept. 16, 2014 — Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, has introduced Klübersynth GE 46-1200, a synthetic long-term gear grease for a variety of gear applications, and Klübersynth UH1 6 Series, a complete line of polyglycol gear oils available in ISO VG from 100-1,000 for a variety of industries, including food processing and pharmaceuticals.

Klübersynth GE 46-1200 grease, ideal for temperatures ranging from -30°C to 120°C, has a high load-carrying capacity and protects against wear and corrosion. The grease, which does not contain lead or solid lubricants, was developed to lubricate spur gears, bevel gears and worm gears with material pairings steel on steel, such as gear motors, small gears and gears in power tools. Klübersynth GE 46-1200 is also designed to lubricate toothed couplings, ball and roller guides, and rolling and sliding bearings.

“Klübersynth GE 46-1200 has the benefits of a polyglycol base oil in a fluid grease form,” explained Craig Desrochers, P.E., application & service engineer for Klüber Lubrication North America L.P. “It offers a high resistance to oxidation for a long life with a low coefficient of friction.”

Klübersynth UH1 6 oils offer high-scuffing load capacity, micro-pitting resistance and exceptional wear protection for gears subject to high loads, with a rating of GFT-high on the micropitting test according to FVA 54/7. The oils were developed to lubricate bevel and spur gears, rolling and plain bearings, types of denture clutches, and worm gears with steel/bronze pairings, as well as lifting, drive and transport chains. Klübersynth UH1 6 oils, which are NSF H1 registered and ISO 21469 certified, are designed for incidental contact with products and packaging materials in the food processing, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and animal feed industries.

Klübersynth UH1 6 oils feature excellent aging and oxidation resistance, viscosity-temperature behavior and thermal stability, helping extend maintenance intervals and service life. In many cases, one viscosity grade can be used for both low and high temperatures. Polyglycol base oils and special additives reduce the friction coefficient and provide low wear values, helping Klübersynth UH1 6 achieve a particularly low wear intensity, according to DIN 3996. The optimum friction behavior of the polyglycol base oil also helps reduce power loss and improves efficiency, resulting in lower energy costs and lower operating temperatures.

“Klübersynth UH1 6 was developed based on KlüberComp Lube Technology, which involves the selection of high-quality raw materials to ensure high-performance lubrication of all gearbox components,” noted Desrochers. “KlüberComp Lube Technology also offers customers individual consultation and services by Klüber Lubrication, helping ensure high-performance lubrication of different gearbox components.”
