Klüber Lubrication high-performance gear oils provide long-term protection of gear units and enable increased service life compared to conventional mineral-based enclosed gearbox oils.
Reduce your maintenance service intervals with Klübersynth GEM 2, GEM 4 and the Klüberbio EG 2 gear oil series enabling service lifetimes 3 to 4 times longer than standard oils. The products' synthetic base oils offer excellent ageing and oxidation resistance and provide a high scuffing load capacity to protect gear flanks against damage even under high loads. The low friction coefficient of high-performance gear oils can also improve gear efficiency while saving costs and reducing CO2 emissions.
We recommend Klüberbio EG 2 oils for the lubrication of rudder propeller and thruster gear drives. They are rapidly biodegradable, and do not bio-accumulate which considerably reduces their environmental impact in the event of leakage. Klüberbio EG 2 oils comply with the standard for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 Vessel General Permit issued by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Selected elastomers made of NBR and FKM are compatible and approved for use with Klüberbio EG 2 oils to prevent leakage and contamination.
