Klüber Lubrication (Londonderry, NH) has announced the availability of Klübertherm HB 88-182, a versatile long-term grease offering good corrosion and wear protection for rolling bearings subject to high loads and medium speeds at temperatures of up to 180°C. Klübertherm HB 88-182 is fully synthetic and based on a thermally stable base oil, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) thickener and special additives. It closes the performance gap between greases based on perfluorinated polyether (PFPE) oils, which are suitable for high temperature and, for example, conventional high-temperature greases which soon reach their limit when exposed to high thermal loads. Features include:
- Better degradability in the environment than PFPE-based products, so the grease is an efficient lubricant with excellent high-temperature properties.
- The ability to be used in rolling bearing applications in corrugating machines, rotary unions, generator bearings, conveyors, hydraulic couplings, smoke extractor motors, and ceramic ovens, as well as cylindrical roller bearings with a high percentage of sliding friction and sealing systems in the automotive industry.
