When it comes to wind turbines, Mobil™-branded industrial lubricants don’t just make them run: they make them fly.
How? By helping you get the most out of your machines.
Designed to excel even in some of the most demanding conditions such as high heat, heavy load and water contamination - Mobil SHC branded synthetic lubricants and greases will help keep your wind turbines operating in top form. They can help reduce unscheduled downtime, which can lower maintenance costs and even extend oil life.
High performance benefits that accompany this grease are a wide application temperature range, excellent false brinelling protection, outstanding structural stability in the presence of water & excellent protection against rust, corrosion and wear.
The selection of a turbine oil that performs under the most demanding conditions of peak and base load applications has a direct impact on the reliability and profitability of a power generation operation.
Unplanned outages from lubrication failures result in costly downtime and possible equipment damage. However, it is difficult to evacuate accurately the performance of a turbine oil in-service from basic laboratory test results.
Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT is a high performance synthetic grease scientifically engineered to exceed the demanding requirements for severe wind turbine applications at extreme temperatures. The balanced performance profile of Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT makes to the compelling choice of grease for the lubrication of main, pitch and yaw bearings in wind turbines.

For lubrication of oil-pressurised gear boxes today's lubricants are formulated with a variety of synthetic and mineral base oils together with a vast number of additive technologies.
Different oils are not always compatible - this is a factor that must be identified in advance. If the oils are compatible, the used system oil can simply be drained and the system can then be refilled with fresh oil. However, if there are deposits present then further action may be needed.
Expert advice on how operators can optimise performance and reduce unscheduled down-time through lubricant selection and best practice.
Mobil SHC Grease 460WT is proving a compelling choice of synthetic grease for the lubrication of main, pitch and yaw bearings due to its excellent low and high temperature performance.
Advice as to how operators can optimise offshore wind turbine performance and reduce unscheduled downtime.
To optimise wind turbine performance and advanced lubrication, related services have been developed to help operators increase wind turbine availability and reduce unscheduled downtime.
Turbine availability is one of the key parameters of a successful wind farm operation as it directly increases productivity, which leads to higher profitability.
A wind turbine's availability may be improved by selecting the most appropriate synthetic lubricant for each application of a wind turbine, especially wind turbine gearboxes operating in challenging conditions
