Specialty lubricants used in steel production must perform effectively around the clock and under harsh operating conditions. We develop specialty lubricants for the steel industry that meet your requirements while contributing to increased plant availability.
Specialty lubricants for the entire steel production process
Steel plants must recover their high investment costs through continuous production, with minimal downtime and maintenance stops. Machines need high availability and running reliability for extended periods – yet their environment’s high temperatures and extreme loads, water, steam, and aggressive media exceed the capabilities of standard lubricants.
By contrast, our range of specialty lubricants for the entire steel production process is designed to reduce wear reliably and increases component lifetime considerably even under the harshest conditions. This improves plant availability and profitability, while reducing consumption and contributing to environmental protection.
Specialty lubricants from Klüber Lubrication are used across many steel industry applications, with the deployment areas and requirements being as diverse as the different plant and equipment types:
Advantages when using the right lubricant:
Reduced lubricant consumption contributes to sustainable production
We strive to minimise any negative environmental impact; similarly, our lubricants and services offer you considerable potential for improving your sustainability and environmental protection. These benefits relate to lower lubricant consumption:
Increase productivity with our specialty lubricants for continuous casting machines
Continuous casters are one of the most critical operating areas in the steel plant. A possible stoppage or segment change in these casters due to lubrication failure can lead to huge production losses or deterioration of slab quality. With our 90 years of business experience, we now have solutions for over 80 different continuous casting machines, providing precisely the lubricants needed to increase productivity. Our Klüberplex HB 98-601 lubricant, for example, is a synthetic lubricant for pipelines exposed to high temperatures:
Withstand harsh conditions with our specialty grease for hot rolling mills
Hot rolling mills are subject to high loads and shocks, along with contamination from water, steam, scale and rolling oil. Manual or centralised lubrication can be used. With a -10 to 160 °C service temperature, Klüberplex BE 91-502 grease is suitable for hot rolling mills, and offers many key advantages:
