New Special Grease for All Rolling Bearing Applications in Wind Power

ImageAs the various rolling bearings in a wind power plant operate under very different conditions, it would appear that the use of different lubricants, maybe even from different manufacturers, is a must. For the operator, this means complex logistics and costly storage, but also the risk of a wrong lubricant being used by mistake, and a generally inefficient use of resources. However, a new speciality grease from Klüber Lubrication, Klüberplex BEM 41-141, can be used for the lubrication of all rolling bearings in a wind power plant. This grease not only meets the requirements of the main bearing, generator bearing, yaw bearings and rotor blade pitch bearings without restriction but also helps to improve operational reliability of the power station. If in addition the white adhesive lubricant Klüberplex AG 11-462 is used for the open yaw and pitch adjustment gears, only two lubricants will be required to supply all friction points in a wind power plant that requires grease lubrication.
