Lubricating greases and adhesives to be highlighted at SME Conference & Exposition
Klϋber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, will showcase its lubricating greases for mining applications at booth #2048 during the SME Conference & Exposition, February 19-22 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
Klüberplex ELM 44-80 Arctic is a heavy-duty grease based on a high-quality semi-synthetic oil and a lithium-complex soap thickener, and is the latest addition to the Klüberplex EM mining series. Designed for the demanding operating conditions of the mining industry in arctic and subarctic climates, Klüberplex ELM 44-80 Arctic offers excellent wear protection, especially under boundary and mixed friction conditions to meet the specifications of leading machine manufacturers. A special semi-synthetic technology ensures application in central lubrication systems down to -58 degrees F (-50 degrees C) while it provides an outstanding 4 ball weld load (ASTM D 2596) of 800 kg for component protection under extra high loads.
Typical applications include bolts, pins, guide bushes, chassis components, joints, fasteners, leaf springs and sliding and rolling bearings in both mobile and processing mining machines, such as off-road haulers, wheel loaders and earth movers, hydraulic mining excavators, electric rope shovels and draglines.
Klüberfluid C-F 3 ULTRA is a lubricant developed specifically for the lubrication of medium-size to large girth gear drives. It is based on synthetic hydrocarbons and mineral oil to provide good adhesion, excellent resistance to high pressure and protection against wear. Klüberfluid C-F 3 ULTRA enables the end user to inspect open gears while in operation and significantly reduce the amount of cleaning time for NDT inspections. Klüberfluids will not clog spray nozzles and will freely flow from gear guards while offering superior protection over traditional asphaltic-based products.
Klüberplex EM 91-152 is a lubricating grease designed to prevent galling, wear, and corrosion under extreme loads and slow speeds to increase the life of components and increase mobile equipment availability. This lubricating grease cover a wide range of operating temperatures and environments, since they have been formulated to adhere to metal surfaces and have an excellent resistance to water. Klüberplex EM 91-152 is used in the mining, cement and quarry industries for lubrication of plain bearings, bolts, joints, bushings, and other slow speed, high load applications found in mobile equipment.
