Cleaning while in operation

New cleaning grease for wind turbines reliably removes residues in rolling bearings

Hardened residues in rolling bearings are a frequent cause of elevated bearing temperatures calling for added maintenance activities. It is in particular with a view to generator and main bearings in wind turbines that Klüber Lubrication has developed Klübersynth BZ 68-400, a matching solution for this type of application. The new cleaning grease is specifically used to remove such residues and optimise any bearing grease changeover.

"Until recently, residues had to be removed from rolling bearings manually, which caused a lot of extra work," explains Thomas Wunder, Sales Development Manager GBT-Wind Energy at Klüber Lubrication. "Our newly developed Klübersynth BZ 68-400 is the first product enabling cleaning to be performed while the bearing is in operation. This underlines once again that Klüber Lubrications is highly committed to develop solutions for very specific challenges."

When developing Klübersynth BZ 68-400, particular care was taken to ensure it is compatible with other base oils for maximum versatility. Besides its good cleaning effect, Klübersynth BZ 68-400 also offers protection against wear and corrosion. This protects rolling bearings also during the cleaning process. Klübersynth BZ 68-400 helps extend the service lives of rolling bearings and significantly reduce maintenance and downtime.

Having been primarily developed for applications in wind turbines, Klübersynth BZ 68-400 can also be used for cleaning rolling bearings in many other industries.
