Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, introduced Klüberplex ELM 44-80 Arctic, a heavy-duty grease for mining and quarrying equipment in extreme cold-weather applications.

KlAberplex ELM 44 80 PhotoHigh machine availability, reduced downtime and low maintenance costs are essential to mining and quarrying success. Yet, the growing industry trend of working in extremely cold climates presents lubrication challenges.

Klüberplex ELM 44-80 Arctic is designed for the year-round lubrication of bolts, pins, guide bushes, chassis components, joints, fasteners, leaf springs, and sliding and rolling bearings in mining and quarrying machines that operate in harsh arctic, sub-arctic and continental climates.

With 5 percent content of solid lubricants, this grease offers excellent wear protection under mixed friction conditions to meet the specifications of machine manufacturers. Its high-tech additives provide superior load-carrying capacity at high surface pressures combined with low speeds. The highly advanced base oil combinations deliver unmatched pumpability at temperatures as low as -50 C (-58 F). It also adheres well to vertical surfaces in higher temperatures.

The performance characteristics of Klüberplex ELM 44-80 Arctic benefit equipment such as off-road haulers, wheel loaders, earth movers, hydraulic mining excavators, electric cable excavators, cranes, and transport and conveyor systems.
