Formulated for wind turbine applications, SKF’s high-load, wide-temperature bearing grease, LGBB 2, provides consistent lubrication for the demanding operating conditions of blade and yaw bearings, which are subjected to high loads, temperatures varying from very low to medium (minus 40C to plus 120C) and very slow speeds, including oscillating movements and standing-still conditions. The often-static conditions in combination with vibrations can lead to false brinelling. The grease helps prevent cor ros ion resulting from this situation. It is based on a highly refined synthetic base oil and a complex lithium thickener, and is designed to withstand offshore turbine installation.
