Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, has announced the availability of Klübertherm HB 88-182. This new product is a versatile long-term grease that provides 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.
They are ideal for conventional high-temperature greases that quickly reach their limit when exposed to high thermal loads.
With better degradability in the environment than PFPE-based products, the grease is an efficient lubricant with excellent high-temperature properties. Klübertherm HB 88-182 can be used in rolling bearing applications in generator bearings, hydraulic couplings, cylindrical roller bearings, and others.
