Vehicle Lubrication

For a smooth railway-operation and the adherence of the daily schedule, not only the functionality of infrastructure/ vehicle body must be considered but also the interplay of many components. Components such as brakes, door mechanisms and clutches ensure a safe transportation of passengers/goods and have to be intact at all times. To ensure long-term functionality of various components in train engineering, it requires a lubricant selection that is specially tailored to the requirements of such component complexity. A number of specially selected lubricants and lubrication systems offers vehicle and rail owners a comprehensive maintenance programme for vehicle lubrication. Our product portfolio includes ecological and economical high-performance lubricants, which extend maintenance intervals and reliably protect components against wear and corrosion.

Door mechanisms

Turmogrease SKL Series

Synthetic long-life greases for the lubrication of ball screws in door mechanisms. Applicable at high as well as low temperatures. These Li metal-soap greases offer low frictional torque, high wear protection and enable the safe opening and closing of train doors. They are successfully used in door systems by e. g. Knorr-Bremse GmbH Division IFE Automatic.

Turmotemp N 182

Special lubricant for the lubrication of door seals in high-speed trains (ICE, TGV, AVE). The PTFE-containing grease is extremely pressure and vacuum-resistant, compatible with EPDM and silicone seals and offers a very good UV-protection for a long-life functionality in door mechanisms. It is successfully used in door systems by e. g. Knorr-Bremse GmbH Division IFE Automatic.

Clutches/buffer heads/brakes

Grizzlygrease No. 3

Lithium/Calcium complex-soap grease with high pressure stability. It offers extremely high load carrying capacity due to its special high-load additives (EP) and reduces significantly friction at the contact points. It is very corrosion and ageing resistant.

From distinctive competencies in demanding industrial application we developed DuoMax 160, a long-term solution for the lubrication of door systems. The automatic lubrication unit reliably supplies guides and joints with the optimum lubricant quantity and thus prevents over or under-lubrication.
