Modern lubricating fluids today cover an extremely wide spectrum. They are the „elixir" for every machine. While in the past mostly mineral oils were used, today in nearly all High-Tech-Applications fully synthetic lubricating fluids are in use. New production and manufacturing processes, higher capacity utilisation of machines, reduced time and personnel resources in maintenance and service have promoted the development of more and more specialised lubricants.

The extensive lubricating fluids programme of FUCHS LUBRITECH offers the widest choice of products for use in for-life and total loss lubrication. Apart from the traditional fluids based on mineral oils, there is a full range of synthetic fluids available, e.g. for use in high and low temperature applications, in the food industry and in areas where environmental constraints have to be addressed.

We set standards not only with our high-performance products, but also with our exceptional service! This includes providing advice on how to optimise the use of food grade lubricants taking into account stringent QA management procedures in order to avoid food con- tamination (in accordance with HACCP = Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), examination of used lubricants, development of lubrication and maintenance schedules, support in changing lubricants, active support for practical testing, careful documentation of all measures, and much more.

Finding comprehensive, sustainable, and safe solutions for all tribological issues arising from our customers’ requirements and their applications is our declared aspiration, standard, and goal. Customer seminars and training sessions held globally complete our service programme. With its competent technical advice and widespread sales network, our global Food Division team supports you in your production and processing activities to ensure that you will always achieve optimal results.

The production of food grade lubricants has been one of the core competencies of FUCHS LUBRITECH GmbH for decades.After adding the new CASSIDA product portfolion to our production programme, we now offer what apears to be the most comprehensive range of lubricants for all application domains in the food and beverage industries as well as related fields of appllcation.FUCHS LUBRITECH, headquartered in Kaiserslautern(Germany), is an idependent unit with rots in FUCHS PETROLUB AG, the largest independent manufacturer of lubricants worldwide.

NOWADAYS IN MANY TECHNICAL AREAS, biologically degradable lubricants make an important contribution by providing the best possible method of dealing with friction points while at the same time providing the greatest possible degree of protection to the environment.
The purposeful use of a traditional lubricant already benefits the environment by lessening friction, reducing noise and wear and saving energy. If, however, one introduces efficient, environmentally harmless lubricants, there is also a visible reduction in the adverse effects upon water, air and soil. Some statistics on the subject: the global consumption of lubricants amounts to about 37 million tonnes, of which about 1.2 million are in Germany alone.

The proportion of pure loss lubricants amounts to circa 40,000 tonnes. As far as the diverse, environmentally sensitive lubrication points on switches, rails and wheel flanges are concerned, estimates for the total requirement in Germany start from well over a thousand tonnes per year. However, it is decisive for the use of environmentally harmless lubricants that they must be at least of the same quality than conventionally based lubricants, so that the benefit of biodegradability is not achieved at the expense of technical performance. In this case a higher dose would have to compensate, which would again not be beneficial for the environment.

Environmentally harmless lubricants from FUCHS LUBRITECH are therefore not compromises, but are trimmed to optimal performance right from the very beginning. Good biodegradability is an additional plus. For more than three decades FUCHS LUBRITECH has devoted itself to the development of biodegradable lubricants. From early on fully synthetic base oils, which from the point of view of efficiency are clearly superior to the native products, took centre stage in this. For it is precisely in such highly sensitive applications such as the lubrication of rails and switches that the technical efficiency must not lag behind the environmental compatibility. The result of ambitious development work: an elaborate programme of special lubricants for all areas of wheel-rail contact. Included in this are universally applicable wheel flange lubricants as well as lubricants for the rail flanks, designed for use with special application techniques, or longterm lubricants for effective switch lubrication.

But the development continues. In this one thing is certain every time: working closely with international customers the specialists at FUCHS LUBRITECH will in future continue to bring high tech lubricants to the rails.

OF COURSE THE LUBRICANTS for the various types of wheel-rail contact take up a particularly important position in rail transport. Malfunctions of the lubricant can affect safety. For this reason, the highest quality demands are set on these lubricants and their manufacturers. However there are a great deal of other lubrication points on railroad vehicles, where the use of special lubricants quickly pays off.

The following overview shows some of these application fields and states the appropriate FUCHS LUBRITECH special agent for the purpose.
