Zeller + Gmelin expands grease portfolio
Germany’s Zeller + Gmelin, based in Esslingen, has added a new high-temperature and a long-life grease to its Divinol product line.
“Worldwide, our customers are successfully using Divinol greases,” says Christian Stapper, product manager for lubricants at Zeller + Gmelin. “No matter what area of application – our greases ensure a low-friction concentricity of rolling bearings, slide bearings, gears, and other aggregates,” he added.
Zeller + Gmelin is well-known as a reliable supplier of high-quality lubricants. Particularly in the workshop area, the Divinol brand is a household name. The product range of Divinol lubricants is extremely broad. Because of the high customer benefit and the strong market demand, the lubricant manufacturer has now decided to extend its portfolio of 500-gram screwable cartridges.
With decades-long experience and extensive know-how, Zeller + Gmelin knows and understands the challenges for the use of greases.
“We market greases depending on the purpose and lubricant quantity per lubrication interval in different container sizes,” says Stapper. A very common container size in trade is the so-called grease cartridges, which are commonly sold with a filling weight of 400 grams. These cartridges are opened with pull-off tabs.
Next to the standard cartridges, so-called screwable cartridges were introduced in the market several years ago. The main advantage of the screwable cartridges is the easy opening, by simply unscrewing the lid. Especially under colder conditions, as well as performing lubrication outdoors, such as in construction, agriculture, and forestry, the easy opening proves to be a big advantage.
“Because of the easy handling and diverse areas of application, our 500-gram cartridges are very popular in the market;” Stapper explains. “That’s why we decided to extend this portfolio, in the interest of our users, to further innovate greases.”
