Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, recently showcased two specialty lubricants for the wind power industry at WINDPOWER 2010 in Dallas. The lubricants are Klüberplex® BEM 41-141 and Klüberplex® AG 11-462.
Klüberplex BEM 41-141 is high-performance grease with a special blend of base oil and additives to cover the different lubrication requirements of the individual bearing applications within wind power stations. The beige grease is ideal for pitch and yaw bearings (high stresses, oscillations, vibrations), main bearings (low rpm, high stresses, vibrations), and generator bearings (high rpm and temperatures). A simple switch to one lubricant for all bearings will reduce maintenance costs and simplify lubrication routines.
The second outstanding product is a priming and operational lubricant for open gears. Klüberplex AG 11-462 is white gear grease that provides excellent adhesion as well as superior protection against high loads and corrosion. The adhesive grease effectively lubricates the control gears for pitch and yaw systems while reducing the risk of migration inside the nacelle and onto the tower.
