Turbines can shut down in cold weather because of filter failures resulting from high lubricant viscosity. UCON™ GL-320 has a higher viscosity index to address this issue without needing additional VI improvers. The lubricant also has a higher heat capacity than hydrocarbon oils, which allows it to move more heat, reducing shutdowns. It’s polyalkylene glycol based and has the potential to shift the power vs. wind speed curve to the left, resulting in greater power output.
