SMOOTH OPERATION AT ALL TEMPERATURES


In the offshore wind energy sector components have to withstand harsh conditions and work effectively, which is why choosing the right lubricants is crucial to ensure appropriate levels of reliability are maintained.


Speciality lubricants from Klüber Lubrication help to maximise the output of equipment and critical assets whether floating or fixed with minimum maintenance intervention to reduce downtime and save costs.


The company is a trusted partner of


OEM’s worldwide with a portfolio of over 2,500 speciality lubricants designed to perform in the harshest offshore operating conditions and has for over 85 years continually provided greater product durability, solving the most challenging lubrication problems of modern-day equipment


COST EFFECTIVE LUBRICATION – A SMALL INVESTMENT THAT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE


As wind generators get ever larger, the power density in wind turbine gears increases causing higher stress on the gears. Experience has shown that conventional gear oils often fail to meet the taxing requirements in terms of wear protection for rolling bearings, micro- pitting resistance, foam and residue formation and viscosity stability. In-house tests have shown that Klüber Lubrication advanced additive technologies can react at the surface of the tooth flank even at low oil temperatures to assure protection across the widest range of operating conditions as well as assuring the most durable service life and transmission efficiency.


SYNTHETIC GEAR OILS


Synthetic gear oils for example offer a significantly higher efficiency than standard gear oil based on mineral oil, resulting in a lower friction which reduces temperature, lowers energy costs and enables extended oil change intervals – an important consideration when lubricating offshore wind turbines.


PUSHING THE LIMITS – THE FUTURE OF SPECIALITY LUBRICANTS


As an independent supplier of speciality lubricants the company excel at driving improvement measures even when ‘problems’ don’t exist to deliver on overall uptime and productivity aims. Through their technology, expertise and by working in close collaboration with leading OEMs, Klüber Lubrication continue to push the limits of efficiency and performance helping to achieve the best operational practices that combine economic savings with environmental benefits.
