Kluber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, has announced the availability of Klubertherm HB 88-182, a versatile long-term grease that the company says offers good corrosion and wear protection for rolling bearings subject to high loads and medium speeds at temperatures of up to 180 degrees C.

According to the company, Klubertherm HB 88-182 is fully synthetic and based on a thermally stable base oil, polytetrafluoroethylene thickener and special additives.

Kluber claims this new product closes the performance gap between greases based on perfluorinated polyether 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.

The company says Klubertherm HB 88-182 can 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.
