Wind power

Whether in hot, cold, dry, or “aggressive” saline environments – wherever wind power stations generate energy, we do everything to ensure that no energy is lost unnecessarily. We have developed specialty lubricants for this purpose which clearly contribute to reducing the wear on your equipment and thus significantly reduce your maintenance effort and expenditures. We offer low-temperature greases for arctic conditions, high-performance greases for long-term lubrication, or efficient specialty lubricants for pitch and yaw bearings – all for ideally smooth generation of energy with no loss of energy and with optimal frictional wear protection.


Special lubricant for pitch and yaw bearings (gear ring and bearing)

GLEITMO 585 K

GLEITMO 585 K is a well-proven, fully-synthetic special lubricant containing reactive white solid lubricants. This synergistic combination offers excellent protection against wear even under most critical operation conditions like vibrations and small oscillation movements under high load which are typical for pitch and yaw bearings of wind turbines. It is also used for gear lubrication of pitch and yaw bearings using lubrication pinions.

GLEITMO 585 K PLUS

GLEITMO 585 K PLUS has been developed in order to meet the requirements of novel lubrication systems. This lubricant is most suitable where progressive distributors are used. GLEITMO 585 K PLUS was developed on the basis of the original GLEITMO 585 K and the excellent wear-protection properties have been retained despite the adaptation of the product. The PLUS in the article name stands on the one hand for the added value gained and on the other for the use in Progressive LUbrication Systems.

Fully synthetic high-performance grease for pitch, yaw and rotor bearings

STABYL LX 460 SYN

STABYL LX 460 SYN is a fully synthetic high-performance grease which was especially developed for the use in wind turbines. Due to its wide operating temperature range, its high mechanical stability and its outstanding load carrying capacity, STABYL LX 460 SYN is excellently suitable for the lubrication of the main rotor bearings. Moreover, it can also be used as multifunctional grease in the very demanding lubricating areas of azimuth and pitch bearings because of its special properties. Therefore STABYL LX 460 SYN considerably reduces the necessary efforts for a safe grease supply in all these lubricating points.

  • Universal application in wind turbines, especially for pitch, yaw and rotor bearings
  • Extremely wide temperature range, from –40°C up to +140°C
