Speciality lubricants for reliable rail traffic

14 Jul 2014

Klüber Lubrication: Experts from Klüber Lubrication will be pleased to answer any questions regarding the lubrication of railway components, drawing on the company’s comprehensive range of speciality products.

‘When developing lubricants for the rail sector, Klüber Lubrication is especially focused on making them environmentally friendly’, says Thomas Kamprath, Market Manager, Rail. ‘This is of particular importance for friction points where contact with water or the ground cannot be ruled out.’

Klüberrail ALO 32-250 is a new lubricant for overhead electrification systems. It is highly adhesive to prevent dripping, and by providing reliable lubrication between the current collector and the conductor is designed to offer lower wear and longer application intervals with reduced noise and vibration.

Klübersynth GE 4 75 W 90 is a synthetic high-performance gear oil approved by IG Watteeuw, Voith Turbo, Siemens-Flender and Deutsche Bahn, while Staburags NBU 30 PTM is a water-resistant assembly lubricant used in bogie applications. Wheel flange lubricant Klüberrail LEA 62-2000 ensures good wear protection and reduces stick-slip effects to cut noise on curves.

Klüberrail AL 32-3000 is a synthetic biodegradable turnout lubricant for use in temperatures as low as -30°C. It  combines resistance to water with corrosion protection and high resistance to UV radiation.
