The challenges facing wind turbine transmissions are severe - high torque, temperature swings, severe corrosion, constant stopping and starting, and accessibility both in offshore applications and in bigger units.
The right oil for the right application Petro-Canada's HARNEX 320 Wind Turbine Gear Oil is a premium synthetic lubricant designed to provide exceptional anti-wear/EP and protection from water corrosion under the toughest conditions.
HARNEX is specially formulated for lubricating onshore and offshore wind turbine gearboxes for reduced downtime and less maintenance, especially critical for difficult to access gearboxes.
It's designed using polyalphaolefin (PAO) chemistry that delivers good oil film thickness over a broad temperature range. The high viscosity index and low traction coefficient of this oil combine to provide significant reduction in power consumption in many gear drives. Meeting and exceeding industry challenges Industry technology is constantly changing to meet ongoing maintenance challenges.
Filter pore sizes have shrunk to 5 microns in main oil circuits and 3 microns in bypass circuits to reduce debris damage. HARNEX, with its special formulation, performs well in conjunction with these filters, and passes the latest OEM filtration tests.
HARNEX meets the following industry specifications:
DIN 51517-3 (CLP 320)
ISO 12925-1 Type CKD
Features & Benefits
Protects against micropitting and scuffing of gear teeth and provides extended bearing life under extreme conditions. Withstands breakdown at high temperatures to increase time between drain intervals, saving you time and labour.
High quality synthetic base stocks reduce viscosity change, which is very critical in remote applications.
Resists rust and corrosion for smooth operation.
Passes the SKF Bearing filterability requirements.
