KLÜBERBIO LM 2-32 is a fully biodegradable, eco-friendly hydraulic fluid based on synthetic ester oils.
Ship owners have many reasons to transition their onboard hydraulic machinery to environmentally acceptable lubricants (EAL) such as a reduction in fines, concern for the environment and impact to organizational reputation should a spill occur. In addition, proposed changes to US regulations will require deck equipment that extends over the water to use EALs. In specific markets, requirements for low temperature hydraulic oils is growing hand in hand with the expansion of shipping routes into arctic regions, including oil and gas activities and expedition cruises in artic regions. As a result, Klüber Lubrication has developed the Klüberbio LM 2 range of EAL hydraulic fluids that reduce impacts on the environment, meet demanding OEM specifications and are based on fully saturated synthetic ester oils.
Klüberbio LM 2 oils are fully biodegradable, eco-friendly hydraulic fluids based on synthetic ester oils. The product series complies also with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's requirements for classification as an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) in terms of biodegradability, toxicity and bioaccumulation standards according to Appendix A of the EPA's Vessel General Permit (VGP). In addition, Klüberbio LM 2 oils meet or even exceed the minimum requirements of HEES oils according to ISO 15380.
– Comply with the requirements for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants as defined in Appendix A of the EPA 2013 VGP (Vessel General Permit). – Fully biodegradable, non-toxic products reducing environmental impact in the event of leakage – Facilitate start-up of hydraulic systems at very low temperatures due to very good viscosity-temperature behaviour and low pour point; can therefore be used in hydraulic systems with high temperature fluctuations. – In addition, Klüberbio LM 2 oils meet or even exceed the minimum requirements of HEES oils according to ISO 15380.

Directions for use
KLÜBERBIO LM 2-32 is intended for applications in mobile hydraulic systems, e.g. in the marine and offshore industries as well as for use in the building and water engineering sectors. They are also preferred in stationary hydraulic equipment operating in ecologically sensitive environments, e.g. in hydroelectric power plants and waterway locks
