Klüber launches latest range of eco lubes

Klüber launches latest range of eco lubes
Munich-based Klüber Lubrication is launching a new range of efficient and environmentally friendly marine lubes that conform to requirements for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) - as laid out in the December 2013 Vessel General Permit requirements of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) - in terms of biodegradability, minimal toxicity and bio-accumulation.

“Our new stern tube oils, high-performance gear oils and hydraulic fluids contain more than 90% renewable raw materials and bear the European ECO label,” said Dirk Fabry, business development manager at Klüber.

Products being highlighted at SMM include: Klüberbio AG 39-602 adhesive lubricant for open gears and steel cables in contact with water; stern tub oils of the Klüberbio RM 2 series; new, readily biodegradable high-performance gear oils of the Klüberbio EG 2 series; and eco-compatible synthetic hydraulic fluids of the Klüberbio LR 9 series.
