Company: Klϋber Lubrication

Equipment Snapshot: Klϋber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, has introduced Klüberplus C2 PM2 Ultra Dry, a plastic conveyor belt lubricant for the food-processing industry.

The lubrication of conveyor systems is a critical challenge that packaging line plants face. This food-grade lubricant can increase packaging line efficiency by 1-5%. Its superlubricity increases line speed without risking belt stability. This low coefficient of friction means that fewer bottles, cans and containers topple, which keeps conveyor lines moving.

Current products available in the market are emulsions based on silicone or suspensions of perfluorinated substances (PTFE) in a base oil. Klüberplus C2 PM2 Ultra Dry is a homogeneous solution that does not separate. This prevents conveyor belt residue and considerably reduces nozzle blockage.

Klüberplus C2 PM2 Ultra Dry’s dripless dry formulation supports plant safety by ensuring that work surfaces don’t get wet and slippery. Because it accumulates less residue and has a built-in cleaning agent, it reduces the risk of bacteria growth and the need for cleaning. These hygienic benefits decrease the need for harsh cleaning agents and water, which is good for workers and the environment. All of this means more uptime, reduced maintenance and better sustainability for packaging plants.
