Multi-purpose oils and greases showcased at Offshore Technology Conference

April 13, 2016
Londonderry, NH

Klϋber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, will feature its multi-purpose oils and greases for offshore applications at booth #2923 during the Offshore Technology Conference, May 2-5, 2016 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas. In the booth, Klüber Lubrication will be co-located with its sister company, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, that will highlight its range of accumulators and services.

Klüber Lubrication offers a comprehensive lubrication portfolio designed for the extreme challenges found in the offshore industry, helping to improve operational efficiency, increase lubrication intervals and reduce downtime. The company will feature the following products at OTC:

Klüberlub OCTG LF HT is a high temperature thread compound, designed to provide reliable sealing under harsh conditions. It is an ideal solution for all API and premium threaded connections for tubing and casing. As an anti-seize compound, Klüberlub OCTG LF HT can be used on fittings, flanges, tubing, couplings, gauges, studs, nipples, nuts, pipe threads, unions, pipe reducers, screws and valves, as well as many other applications.

Klüberplex AG 11-461 and 462 are white operating and priming lubricants, designed to lubricate couplings, joints, gear rim and pinion drives, open gears, low-speed rolling bearings, sliding and guide rails, and steel cables of winches or cranes in marine and offshore applications. The products are able to resist high loads and protect mechanisms against corrosion when exposed to saltwater spray.

Klüberplex AG 11-461 and 462 also provide good adhesion and elevated wear protection at low temperatures, and offer reduced maintenance needs and improved component performance.

Klübersynth GEM 4 N series are synthetic, high-performance gear and multi-purpose oils that provide outstanding protection against wear with resistance to micropitting, foaming, and residue formation. They are used for the lubrication of plain and rolling bearings, toothed couplings, chains, guideways, joints, spindles and pumps. The oil is based on high-grade raw materials and advanced additives, enabling maximum performance in the lubrication of gear components.

Compared to standard formulations, Klübersynth GEM 4 N series provide good thermal stability, high load-carrying capacity, and low friction values that improve the reliability of major components. The excellent viscosity-temperature behavior supports the formation of a sufficient lubricant film, even when equipment is exposed to elevated temperatures or pronounced temperature fluctuations.

ISOFLEX TOPAS NB 52 and ISOFLEX TOPAS NB 152 are two rolling and plain bearing greases based on a synthetic hydrocarbon oil and a barium complex soap. The products are ideally suited for rolling and plain bearings that are subject to high speeds and loads, as well as low temperatures, in order to optimize operational reliability, reduce servicing costs, conserve energy and extend maintenance intervals.

The special barium-soap thickener used in the ISOFLEX TOPAS NB 52 and 152 greases offers good load-carrying capacity, as well as resistance to water and ambient media. Both products protect against corrosion, as well as oxidation and ageing.
