Klϋber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, will showcase its synthetic, high-performance gear oil and heavy-duty grease for wind turbine components during WINDPOWER 2014. The annual conference and exhibition will be held May 5 to 8 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
Klübersynth GEM 4 N oil provides excellent protection against wear with resistance to micropitting, foaming, and residue formation. Compared to standard formulations, the gear oil shows good thermal stability, high load-carrying capacity, and low friction values that improves efficiency and overall life of turbine components. Klübersynth GEM 4 N oil also offers good corrosion protection and compatibility with most nonferrous metals, elastomers, and interior paints that are commonly used in gear construction. An excellent viscosity-temperature behavior supports sufficient lubricating films across a wide range of temperatures.
Klübersynth AG 14-61 is an adhesive, open gear lubricant based on white solid additives. The synthetic base ensures application at low temperatures. Klübersynth AG 14-61 is designed for girth gear/pinion drives and yaw plain bearings in wind turbines. The added value of this lubricant is pumpability at temperatures as low as minus 30°C. Characteristics of this grease include good pressure and wear resistance, even under vibration, and high corrosion protection when exposed to moisture.
Plus, Klubersynth AG 14-61 is free from black solid lubricants like graphite which ensures clean application. During the show, join representatives from Klüber Lubrication at Booth #4614 to discuss the company’s products, services and expertise for the wind power industry.
