Klüber Lubrication's specialty lubricants for all applications will be on display at MINExpo at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Sept. 24-26

Klϋber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, will highlight recent innovations and solutions at MINExpo INTERNATIONAL 2012 from Sept. 24-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. Klϋber, which will be at Booth #849 in the North Hall, will feature several lubrication products developed for OEM and end users, including Klüberlub RM 41-1503, Klüberplex AG 11-461 and Grafloscon C-SG 00 LT, as well as a range of newly developed biodegradable products.

Klüberlub RM 41-1503 is a sealing and lubricating grease recently developed for a renowned manufacturer of heading and cutting machines. The grease seals and lubricates chambers in the main bearings of tunnel boring machines, preventing the ingress of water and soil, and thereby preventing bearing contamination. The compatibility with elastomer materials allows for reliable seal operation, which prevents bearing failures and costly maintenance stops. At the same time, Klüberlub RM 41-1503 consolidates the number of greases from two to one and reduces overall lubricant consumption by up to 50 percent.

Klüberplex AG 11-461 is an adhesive grease containing white solid lubricants that handles high loads and protects against corrosion. The product is used as a priming lubricant for open gears and is effective as a wire rope lubricant. Recently, a manufacturer of continuous miners used Klüberplex AG 11-461 to help double the life of sliding pads, resulting in significant savings through prevented down-time for the end user.

Grafloscon C-SG 00 LT was developed for the harshest of mining environments, and is used for the lubrication of open gear drives and splines incorporated in earthmoving equipment, rotary kilns and tube mills operating in low temperatures. Grafloscon C-SG 00 LT is suitable for use at temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit). The product can also be used for slide and guide rails, large chains, wire ropes and similar equipment operating at lower temperatures.

Klüber Lubrication has long recognized the need for sustainability, developing bio-based and biodegradable lubricants while still meeting the requirements of the most demanding applications. Klüber’s portfolio of bio products continues to expand to include gear, compressor, chain and hydraulic oils, as well as a range of greases and open gear lubricants.
