Cost-effective lubricants

Klüber Lubrication provides products and services to help you maximise your operation where it matters most.

Klüber Lubrication’s marine specific lubricants include environmentally acceptable lubricants, which meet the specifications of the US Vessel General Permit and are approved for use by leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Klüber Lubrication will help you achieve your organisational objectives in cost reduction, improved safety, improved environmental compliance and increased operational uptime.

Our gear oils and stern tube oils, as well as our biodegradable hydraulic fluids for thrusters, controllable pitch propeller (CPP) propulsion units, stern tubes and deck equipment, are approved for use by leading equipment and seal system OEMs. These products now have independent assurance from the EU Ecolabel Program and meet the US EPA’s requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) classification.

High-performance marine lubrication

Specialty efficiency-boosting marine lubrication from Klüber is developed to endure the elements your operation faces every day. The high-performance lubrication solutions can withstand arctic cold, tropical storms and seawater exposure, while significantly extending maintenance intervals and the service-life of components from thrusters, stabilisers and stern tubes, to open gears, cranes, winches and wire ropes.

For applications on vessels and shore-side equipment requiring high-performance protection that does not intefere with surrounding water, Klüber Lubrication can match one of its specialty lubricants to the application.

Lubricants for open gears and steel cables

Klüber Lubrication recently introduced Klüberbio AG 39-602, an environmentally sound adhesive lubricant for open gears and steel cables. Based on ester oil and selected additives, this grease also complies with the requirements for EALs.

Klüber lubricants have been selected by leading OEMs as the recommended product to protect compressors, deck cranes, anchor winches, electric motors and pumps.
