Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, will showcase three innovative gear oils for the wind power industry at the CanWEA 2009 trade show September 20-23 in Toronto, Canada. The lubricants are Klübersynth GEM 4 N, Klübersynth GH 6 and Klübersynth GEM 2.


Following extensive R&D work and a comprehensive performance test program, Klüber Lubrication has developed three synthetic high-performance, high-load gear oil products:

   • Klübersynth GEM 4 N (polyalphaolefin)

   • Klübersynth GH 6 (polyglycol)

   • Klübersynth GEM 2 (rapidly biodegradable ester)


Klübersynth gear oils meet the demanding requirements for gear performance, and offer excellent wear protection, resistance to micro-pitting, foam and residue formation. Compared with other standard gear oils, these products show good ageing resistance, high load-carrying capacity, and low friction values. Consequently, oil change intervals are increased, power loss is reduced, and the resulting yield increases over the operative life of the turbine


Klüber’s ADDED value program makes it easy for manufacturers and operators to simplify their lubrication requirements. For more information about Klüber's lubrication solutions for wind power applications, please visit booth 608 at CanWEA 2009 or the Web site at
