# Klüber Klüberalfa BF 83-102

Klüber Klüberalfa BF 83-102 is a Lubricating grease for high temperatures

– Allows new applications in high-speed bearings lubricated with grease
– due to better thermal stability than conventional high-speed greases
– due to better speed characteristics than conventional PFPE/PTFE high-temperature greases
– due to NSF-H1 registration

#### Description

Klüberalfa lubricants based on perfluorinated polyether (PFPE) have been developed for specific applications where optimum performance under lifetime lubrication conditions is required.

Klüberalfa BF 83-102 has been designed to ensure long service life of rolling bearings subject to high speeds and very high permanent temperatures.

The calculated speed factor sets new standards in the formulation of high-temperature PFPE greases with PTFE thickeners.

Klüberalfa BF 83-102 is NSF H1 registered and therefore complies with FDA 21 CFR § 178.3570. The lubricant was developed for incidental contact with products and packaging materials in the food-processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical or animal feed industries. The use of Klüberalfa BF 83-102 can contribute to increase reliability of your production processes.

We nevertheless recommend conducting an additional risk analysis, e.g. HACCP.

#### Application

Klüberalfa BF 83-102 is suitable, e.g. for fan bearings in turbochargers, small turbines, generator bearings etc. Even at low temperatures the consistency of Klüberalfa BF 83-102 is low enough for use in low-torque drives.

Klüberalfa BF 83-102 is registered as NSF H1 and complies with FDA 21 CFR § 178.3570.

#### Compatibility with plastics and elastomers

Lubricating greases based on perfluorinated polyether oils (PFPE) are generally regarded as neutral towards standard elastomers and plastics and therefore allow the use of a wide range of different materials in construction (exception: fluorinated rubber). Nevertheless compatibility with the materials should be tested, especially prior to series application.

#### Application notes

For optimum lubrication results, we recommend cleaning the friction point with white spirit 180/210 and then with Klüberalfa XZ 3-1 prior to initial lubrication. The friction point has to be bright (i.e. free of oil, grease and perspiration) and free of contamination particles. To optimise service life, please contact our technical sales staff.
