At Windergy 2017, ExxonMobil showcased its Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT – an advanced wind turbine gear lubricant which is used for protecting wind turbine gearboxes operating under extreme conditions, such as extremely low or high temperatures and corrosive environments. This synthetic wind turbine gearbox oil is formulated to provide excellent protection against conventional wear modes such as scuffing, while providing a high level of resistance against micropitting fatigue.
“Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT wind turbine lubrication maximises equipment productivity by minimising unscheduled downtime and maintenance, extends gear and bearing life under high-stress operating conditions. Moreover, the wax-free nature of synthetic fluids and the low coefficient of traction provide excellent low temperature pumpability and very low starting and running torque,” the company claims.
“Wind industry is a growing market with a large number of new entrants tapping this segment. To successfully run operations today requires not only efficiency and productivity but also ensure safety by reducing risks in human to machine interface as well as control and reduce environmental impact. Mobil’s synthetic lubricants are designed to help in Advancing Productivity, which means Mobil lubrication solutions help mitigate potential employee risks arising from direct contact with equipment, helps in reducing carbon footprint, achieve the operational goals and enhance competitiveness by increasing efficiency, reliability and productivity. Our specially designed synthetic oils and greases provide excellent protection against wear, rust and corrosion adding to improved performance, longevity of equipment as well as wind turbine productivity,” said Glen Sharkowicz, Industrial Marketing Manager Asia Pacific at ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd.
Shankar Karnik, General Manager Industrial, ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt Ltd adds, “Our gear oils and greases are designed to ensure adequate and optimised performance of wind turbines, while preserving the life of the gear box and other critical components, extend oil drain intervals and reduce overall maintenance costs. We are committed to helping the wind industry in India reach higher levels of efficiency and productivity.”
