Knitting and Weaving Machines

Modern circular knitting machines, flat beds and weaving machines process daily several hundred kilograms of knitted material at maximum speeds. Hundreds of fine needles and sinkers turn colourful threads into socks, sweaters, skirts, coats, wool bed covers and comforters with finest patterns in a blink of an eye. An accurate knitting and weaving image requires good yarn tension as well as the reliable operation of bearings, gears, sliding elements and needles. Even the smallest machinery discrepancy reflects immediately on the knitted or weaved fabric and increases thus the percentage of substandard fabric as well as the associated manufacturing expenses. LUBCON offers tailored high performance lubricants for the reliability of your machines, particularly geared towards machine component precision and long service life. Scouring, friction and wear minimising LUBCON needle, running-in and cleaning oils enable clean and low-maintenance production processes, while saving costs.

Circular knitting machine
Needles/Sinkers

Turmotexoil LP Series W

Clear, white oil based needle oils with good wetting properties, protecting reliably against wear and corrosion. The oils are very efficient due to their high lubricity, minimise lubricant consumption and reduce operating temperatures.

Turmotexoil LP Series

Special oils for the textile industry, semi-synthetic and mineral oil based, for the lubrication of knitting and sewing machines including needles, sinkers, cams, needle and sinker cylinders as well as spinning rings.

Turmotexoil LP 14 R

Lubricating and cleaning oil on mineral oil base with a superior additive package, protecting needles and sinkers against wear and fretting corrosion. It has an excellent cleaning effect and dissolves yarn deposits easily.

Turmosynthoil S Series W

Semi-synthetic needle and sinker oil on white oil base with good lubricity and outstanding corrosion and wear protection.

Needle and sinker cylinders

Turmotexoil STO 310

Synthetic high-performance starting oil with excellent creeping properties and high oxidation stability, enabling a low coefficient of friction. It prevents felt deposits on needles, sinkers as well as needle and sinker cylinders, protects them against corrosion and is particularly suitable for long-life lubrication.

Slide rails

Turmotex Cleaner A

Easy scouring lubricating and cleaning oil based on mineral oils with very high cleaning effect and good elastomer compatibility. Due to its extremely good creeping properties it penetrates between narrow contact surfaces and removes dirt as well as occurring paraffin deposits.

Flat bed knitting machines
Needles/sinkers

Turmotexoil LP Series

Special oils for the textile industry, semi-synthetic and mineral oil based, for the lubrication of knitting and sewing machines including needles, sinkers, cams, needle and sinker cylinders as well as spinning rings.

Slide rails/Thread guide slides

Turmofluid ED 13

Synthetic, silicone-free, multi-purpose high-performance oil with good wetting effect. Due to its good creeping capabilities it penetrates between narrow contact surfaces and is suitable in a temperatures range from -45 °C up to 150 °C.

Turmoplex 1585 WS

Special grease with lithium-complex soap thickener for very high wear and corrosion protection. Due to the carefully balanced additive package the high-performance grease reduces running noise/vibrations and enables a smooth sliding of slide rails.

Weaving machines
Roller bearings

Turmogrease HDC 2

Mineral oil based, particularly water, media and temperature resistant calcium-sulphonate complex soap for the lubrication of roller and journal bearings subject to vibration, shock and pressure. The grease offers markedly high load carrying capacity and very good corrosion protection. It has a high metal affinity and protects against friction and wear.

Turmogrease N 2

Synthetic high temperature grease for journal and roller bearings subject to vibrations as well as high shock and pressure loads. The grease is resistant towards alkali-liquid and acidic cleaning agents, has high pressure stability and is suitable for long-term and life-time lubrication e. g. in dyeing and bleaching, textile printing and weaving machines as well as stenter frames.

Turmogrease N 3

Multipurpose, PAO/ester special grease with high resistance towards water, steam and cleaning agents. It is highly temperature-resistant and particularly suitable for the long-term and long-life lubrication of journal and roller bearings in weaving machines.

Central lubrication

Turmogrease 2 PA

Smooth complex soap grease with specially selected high-pressure and wear protecting additives for the lubrication of roller and journal bearings in weaving machines. Additionally, it offers maximum friction and corrosion protection even at lubrication points with subject to high surface pressure.

Gear box

Turmofluid GV Series

Fully synthetic, multi-purpose oils for the long-term lubrication of gears, hydraulics, bearings and chains in a wide temperature range -40 °C up to 180 °C. Generally good elastomer and plastic compatibility.

Hydraulic

Turmofluid HLP Series

Aging-resistant hydraulic oils based on mineral oils, with superior corrosion and wear protection even under extreme loads.

Oscillating movements

Turmoplex 1585 WS

Special grease with lithium-complex soap thickener for very high wear and corrosion protection. Due to the carefully balanced additive package the high-performance grease reduces running noise/vibrations and enables a smooth sliding of slide rails.

Turmoplex EL 000 EP

Semi-fluid lithium soap grease with chemically active EP additives as well good corrosion and wear protection properties. It is particularly suitable for the lubrication of gears and clutches in humid and dusty environments.

Rapier front rollers/Scissors

Turmogrease Highspeed L 251

Lithium special soap lubricant for a low coefficient of friction. It has very good noise behaviour, low starting resistance as well as excellent wear and corrosion protection. It is perfectly suitable for the long-term lubrication of rapier front rollers and scissors subject to high operating temperatures.

Electric motors

Turmogrease N 3

Multi-purpose PAO/ester special grease with high resistance to water, steam and cleaning agents. It shows maximum temperature stability and is particularly suitable for the long-life and life-time lubrication of electric motors in cotton processing as well as textile finishing.

Turmogrease PHS 1002

Temperature-resistant, semi-synthetic special grease suitable for the long-term and life-time lubrication of electric motor bearings. It enables a low coefficient of friction, protects reliably against corrosion and is very resistant toward cold and hot water as well as steam and cleaning agents.

Assembly/Maintenance

Turmopast NBI 2 weiss

Lubricating and assembly paste, free of heavy metals with good water/media resistance as well as reliable protection against wear and fretting corrosion. The assembly paste with white solid lubricants protects reliably against wear and is excellently suitable for long-term lubrication of roller and journal bearings at high static and dynamic loads e. g. journal bearings of rotary plates in carding and rowing machines as well as roller bearings in textile finishing machines.

Turmopast MA 2

Pressure-resistant assembly paste with particularly high protection against tribo-corrosion as well as friction and fretting corrosion. Specially selected additives enable optimum protected roller and journal bearings that are subject to high pressure and shock loads as well as vibrating and oscillating movements.
