Castrol Industrial Lubricant Subject Of Independent Testing


Castrol Industrial says an independent study recently conducted by Powertrib has proven that its Optigear Synthetic X 320 lubrication product prolongs wind turbine gearbox life.

For turbine gearboxes already exhibiting signs of wear, the trials also suggested that Optigear Synthetic X 320 could actively ‘smooth damaged surfaces through its advanced friction modifiers,’ Castrol Industrial says.

When used as specified, Castrol Industrial has calculated that the potential annual savings of switching to its Optigear Synthetic X 320 system could be up to $5,000 per wind turbine operated, taking into account associated reductions in the typical number of oil changes and changing parts (including labor).
