VGP-compliant lubricating grease for rolling and plain bearings
Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, has introduced Klüberbio BM 32-142, a high-performance environmentally acceptable lubricating grease for rolling and plain bearings in cranes, fairleads, winches and rudder systems of ships.
Designed to protect mechanical equipment in the marine environment, Klüberbio BM 32-142 contains special additives that reduce wear, protect against corrosion and enable smooth operation even at extremely low temperatures.
With its biodegradable base oil, Klüberbio BM 32-142 complies with the requirements of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP). The grease can be used in a wide temperature range from minus 40°C to plus 120°C. Besides its excellent corrosion and wear protection, the operational lubricant offers a very good load-carrying capacity, therefore extending maintenance intervals and the overall service life of components.
