OKS at the Hannover Fair 2019 – EPTDA pavilion
Maisach, 26.02.2019 – Special lubricants are an essential element for the drive technology for construction and sustainability reasons. They make a major contribution to increasing the efficiency of machine systems and minimizing their operating costs.
New and proven lubricating technology solutions for special applications in drive technology
At the Hannover Fair 2019, the tribology expert OKS will present new and proven lubricating technology solutions for special applications in drive technology. In particular, high-performance specialty lubricants for food technology such as e.g. the “Extreme Temperature Bearing Grease OKS 4220”. This bearing grease was specially designed for use at the highest loads and temperatures. It is NSF H1 certified and free of MOSH / MOAH substances, thus minimizing the risk of unwanted contamination.
"There is a strong trend to further increase the performance of lubricants through 'intelligent' additives containing no critical components," explains Markus Breitenbach, Head of Marketing at OKS Spezialschmierstoffe GmbH. "Biodegradable specialty lubricants and cleaners, as well as water-based coatings and corrosion protection products, also help to reduce the impact on the environment and increase product safety across all industries."
Example: Lubrication of transport chains in the production of Aluminum beverage cans
Often the performance of the newly developed, environmentally friendly solutions exceeds that of conventional products. A suitable example of this from OKS is the lubrication of transport chains in the production of Aluminum beverage cans. After deep drawing, the cans are painted and baked at 210 °C. For the transport of the cans through the baking oven high speed chains are used, which achieve a throughput of up to 20,000 cans/h. By applying OKS 3570/1 high-temperature chain oil, the lubricant consumption was reduced by more than 60 % compared to the oil used beforehand and the service lifetime of the chain has been doubled.
The specialization of lubricants implies that in the future the search for a suitable lubricant will no longer only focus on the selection of a suitable grease or oil. Instead, the decision for the optimal lubrication solution for a particular application will play a major rule. The support of the design engineers of a lubricant expert such as OKS Spezialschmierstoffe GmbH will therefore continue to gain in importance – because only lubricant manufacturers with their research and development capabilities, can provide competent advice and provide innovative and economical solutions.
At the Hannover Fair 2019 in Hall 24, Booth B35/24 (EPTDA Pavilion), the experts of OKS will be happy to answer any questions you may have about tribology.
