Klüber Introduces New Grease for Small Gears

Noria news wires

Klϋber Lubrication recently introduced a new grease for highly loaded small gears like those found in power tools.

Klübersynth GE 14-151 consists of a combination of ester and synthetic hydrocarbon base oils with an aluminum-complex soap thickener. It features a wide service temperature range, wear protection properties and a high scuffing load capacity. The grease also offers protection against tribocorrosion.

It can be utilized to lubricate toothed wheels, bearings, joints and slideways. The oil-release behavior enables use in applications that are not sealed oil-tight, while the high scuffing load capacity and backflow behavior allow the lubrication of gears with a high sliding ratio.

Depending on the temperature, load and sliding speed, Klübersynth GE 14-151 can be used on steel/steel, steel/aluminum and aluminum/aluminum components. When employed for lubricating trapezoidal and ball-and-screw spindles, it can also provide wear protection and smooth running.

With a partial fill of the gear housing, the grease can be utilized in gears operating at peripheral speeds of approximately 10 meters per second. Over short-term or intermittent operation, it can maintain speeds of 20 meters per second. Tooth flank lubrication allows a speed of 3 meters per second.
