Air-free refilling of automatic lubrication systems

Reliable relubrication with air-free grease cartridges

New generation wind turbines are equipped with automatic lubrication systems. These contain grease reservoirs of various sizes that need to be refilled during scheduled maintenance every six months. For reliable operation, it is of the highest importance that no air is transferred to the automatic lubrication systems while refilling the reservoirs. Klüber Lubrication offers air-free bellow cartridges produced using an optimized process.

"With the new air-free bellow cartridges, Klüber Lubrication meets the increasing demand for efficient refilling solutions for automatic lubrication systems", says Thomas Jørgensen from Business Unit Wind Energy of Klüber Lubrication. "The new cartridge is a real innovation for users and demonstrates Klüber Lubrication’s commitment to customer needs."

These cartridges, available in 3 and 5 kg packages are compatible with the service relubrication pumps of latest turbine models as well as retro-fits. They are free of air, avoiding malfunction of the lubrication system.
