MB Maxlube

Premium circulating and gear oils


Manufactured from highly refined base stocks, MB Maxlube is a premium, high quality circulating oil. The product is based on highly refined paraffinic base stock and contains a balanced and advanced additive package which improves water separation ability, resistance to oxidation, filterability and thermal stability. These properties improves machine reliability to a great extent and ensure a trouble-free operation of equipment.


MB Maxlube is suitable for a wide array of applications, including use in the wet and dry ends of paper machine circulating systems, steam turbines and hydroturbines or wherever a durable lubricant is required such as plain and roller bearings or shaft lubrication. MB Maxlube is the recommended grade for paper machines that operate under extreme conditions and in hydraulic systems of the press section of highoutput paper machines. For dedicated food and dairy packaging paper machines we recommend the use of our H-1 approved circulating oil; Foodmax Gear PAO Premium.
