– Comply with the legal requirements set forth in EU Directive 2003/53/EC for placing NP/NPE-containing products on the market
– Long service life of stitch-forming elements due to good wear protection and damping effect
– Compatible with electronic control systems, elastane fibres and commonly used sealing materials and plastics due to the special base oils and additives
– Higher economical efficiency of knitting machines due to reduced downtime
– Reduction of operating costs due to extended maintenance intervals
In the knitting industry, requirements in terms of consistent product quality, compatibility of materials, wear protection and scourability are becoming more and more stringent. We therefore developed the Klüber Silvertex W needle oils, which are manufactured in consistent quality using special mineral base oils and additives. These oils are biodegradable according to OECD – 301 c. They reduce wear and deposits on stitchforming elements, thus ensuring long and trouble-free operation of knitting machines, while at the same time reducing operating costs.
Klüber Silvertex W oils are scourable using customary washing liquors.
Klüber Silvertex W oils lubricate needles, sinkers, couplings, needle cams, cylinders, dials and sinker rings in knitting machines. In addition, they ensure clean needle grooves and help to extend needle and sinker life. Klüber Silvertex W oils are compatible with elastane fibres and commonly used sealing materials and plastics.
Klüber Silvertex W oils are available in the viscosity grades ISO VG 22, 32 and 68 and can therefore be used for circular and flat-bed knitting machines. The oils are tested and approved by leading knitting machine manufacturers.
Klüber Silvertex W oils can be precisely metered by means of conventional oil feeders. Please observe the machine manufacturer’s viscosity recommendations. Before changing over to Klüber Silvertex W oils, please make sure the oil feeders are drained and the oil containers are thoroughly cleaned. Different types of needle oils should never be mixed due to their different chemical composition. We recommend Klüber Silvertex R 14, our special cleaning and flushing agent, to clean your machines. Monitoring of the lubrication quantity is recommended following changeover with readjustment where necessary. As the oils change their viscosity with decreasing temperatures, we recommend heating it up before use in order to ensure trouble-free operation of the machines. Please note that biodegradable products should be handled with the same care as all conventional oils. Any avoidance of contamination is to the benefit of the environment. If you wish to optimise the service life of your knitting machine or have any other questions regarding your application, our experts will be pleased to help you. We look forward to hearing from you.
