The Use of Nano- and Micro-sized Particle-Based Lubricant Additives
Nano- and micro-sized particle-based lubricant additives are used in wind turbine applications, and also in engines, gears and bearings in different industry sectors such as cement, steel, mining, maritime and automotive around the world. Treated machinery, gearboxes and bearings can run better with reduced friction and temperature and greater reliability and durability due to reduced abrasion and wear. Rewitec is an independent, medium-sized business that develops such additives, and in this article its Managing Director Stefan Bill describes how the company’s products have undergone tribological tests and been shown to provide life extension upgrades.
