MUNICH, Germany – Klüber Lubrication has released a new line of synthetic lubricants that protect the environment and reduce operating costs.

Klüberbio RM 2-150 is non-toxic, readily biodegradable stern tube oil for fixed-pitch and controllable-pitch propellers. This oil is a more eco-compatible alternative compared with the mineral-based oils that are used for applications below the water line.

Klüberbio EG 2-150, a synthetic ester oil, designed for use in thrusters and rudder propellers offering the reliability required for these gears due to their demanding lubrication requirements. This oil has a high scuffing resistance and is shown to have superior viscosity-temperature behavior compared with conventional mineral oil-based gear oils. The oil is designed to be compatible with the elastomer materials that are commonly used in propellers and gears, so that the lubricant can help lengthen the life of the propeller shaft seal.

The white adhesive lubricant Klüberplex AG 11-462 has been successfully used on many winches and cranes and can be used to lubricate davits and steel ropes on many types of ships. Klüberplex AG 11-462 has been proven to perform at tropical temperatures and has anticorrosive properties that can benefit gears and other materials that come into contact with sea water.
