Castrol Lubricants for Wind Turbines
Castrol focuses on all lubrication areas of your wind turbine, using proven applications expertise to deliver lubrication solutions that provide reliable and economical
performance.

Wind energy technology is advancing rapidly. Turbines have grown in power from a few kWs to 6MW or more today, placing far higher demands on turbine lubrication. Heavier duty cycles leading to increased bearing and gearbox loadings, and accessibility problems associated with service and repair all require specific solutions. With the added need to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and extend the cost-competitiveness of wind energy against conventional energy sources, the reliable operation of all equipment has never been more important.

Gearbox and bearing lubrication is particularly challenging due to the complexity of the gearbox and the high mechanical loads that are experienced. Gearbox and bearing problems are a common cause of costly downtime.

The folks at Castrol have focused on all lubrication areas of your wind turbine, using proven applications expertise and advanced products to deliver solutions that provide reliable and economical performance. Working with key component manufacturers, we can better understand and deliver on the technical demands of the industry, pioneering innovative technology for the future.

CASE STUDY • Automatic Generator Bearing Lubrication

By using Castrol Longtime PD 2 with single point lubricators, the amount of maintenance required was considerably reduced. Each bearing was automatically supplied wiht 0.64 CC every 12 hours and the lubricant cartridges only had to be replaced every six months. Previously, the same components were re-lubricated manually every three months using a lever-type hand gun.

CASE STUDY 2 • Stop Micro-Pitting Damage

Both in tests and in service use, Castrol Optigear Synthetic A and Castroil Tribol 1710 reliably stopped micro-pittting. Damage had been occurring in some cases the Special plastic deformation additive technology incorporated in these products repaired the damaged surface.

GRINDING COOLANT FROM CASTROL

SAFETY-COOL 9951 For Fast Cooling on Hot Jobs!

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

SAFETY-COOL 9951 is a synthetic cutting fluid concentrate used for cutting and grinding all metals.  It is particularly effective on hardened tool steels and high-speed operations because superior wetting qualities allow it to penetrate to the edge of the cutting tool and quickly dissipate heat.

SAFETY-COOL 9951 allows increased feeds and speeds; permits greater production and increases tool life by preventing heat accumulation and inhibiting rust formation.

SAFETY-COOL 9951 out performs ordinary and grinding fluids by providing exceptional lubricating properties. Wheels stay open for faster metal removal, less wheel dressing, decreased wheel wear and loading, improved finish and increased production.

NEW! SYNTILO 9918 is an operator friendlyneutral pH synthetic cutting and grinding fluid that combines optimum machining performance with a minimal mist—resulted in less dermatitis. This increases productivity with higher operator acceptance!

KEY PERFORMANCE BENFITS

  • Low Mist - Low order
  • Excellent rust protection
  • Minimizes rancid odors
  • Settles chips and swarf quickly for a cleaner work area
  • Low foaming
  • Prevents bimetallic corrosion
  • Excellent bio-reisistance
  • Reduces down time by extending system life
