AMSOIL Industrial synthetic wind turbine lubricants are engineered to exceed turbine-manufacturer specifications. We understand the lubrication challenges of wind turbines operating in extreme environments and provide customized solutions that increase operational efficiency and reduce maintenance and downtime.
Micropitting wear due to lubricant contaminants ruins gears and increases maintenance and downtime costs.more info
Normal wear and low filterability of inferior products can result in additive depletion, decreasing the life of your oil and increasing maintenance costs.more info
Ester-based lubricants and mineral oils with anti-scuff additives have increased risk of water contamination, which results in increased friction and has a detrimental effect on bearings in a turbine gearbox.more info
Regular lubricant maintenance can be difficult but is vital to ensure the longevity of turbines operating at elevated heights in remote areas and under extreme conditions.more info
AMSOIL Industrial Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Oil is available in multiple viscosities and is used in more than 40% of megawatt-class wind turbine gearboxes in North America and in additional assets on every continent.

AMSOIL Industrial Innovations:
AMSOIL Industrial develops products that deliver. As a family-owned company that isn’t beholden to stockholder demands, we maintain the freedom and flexibility to make business decisions with quality and customer-care at the forefront.
AMSOIL Industrial was founded on the American ideals of entrepreneurship, innovation and hard work. Those qualities are baked into everything we do – from the service we provide to the products we manufacture.
Micropitting changes gear-tooth shape, which disrupts the accuracy of gears as they mesh. This can lead to vibration, noise, misalignment and eventually gear failure. The metal particles that break free from the gear tooth populate the oil with wear-causing debris that can lead to bearing, gear and seal wear. Eventually, you must schedule downtime to perform costly repairs.
AMSOIL Industrial synthetic lubricants help prevent micropitting wear for optimum gearbox efficiency and extended service life.
Additive depletion is frequently caused by water ingress or improper filtration. Additionally, some lubricant additives can interrupt the performance of other additives, so lubricants must be designed with perfectly balanced additive concentrations to prevent wear and corrosion.
AMSOIL Industrial synthetic lubricants are specifically engineered to resist moisture, improve filtration and prevent additive depletion in extreme-service wind turbine applications.
AMSOIL Industrial lubricants are proven to resist water. Our Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Oil demonstrated a low average water concentration of 92 ppm, providing excellent protection and maximum component life.
Wind turbines regularly operate under extreme conditions in high and low temperatures with heavily loaded bearings. Implementing regular lubrication maintenance will ensure your lubrication is in optimal condition to prevent water ingress and corrosion, mircopitting and scuffing. A trained AMSOIL wind expert can help direct your lubrication process.
AMSOIL Industrial safety- and rescue-trained wind energy engineers work on-site and up-tower to direct the lubrication process, including oil analysis and changeover. AMSOIL Industrial consultation services help operators maximize their operations and maintenance programs.
AMSOIL Industrial wind energy engineers rely on their firsthand knowledge of wind turbine gearbox lubrication to consult with operators and optimize their oil analysis programs. AMSOIL Industrial can recommend specific test methodologies to accurately identify gearbox condition and help interpret oil analysis reports from your lab of choice. Using AMSOIL Industrial consultation services helps operators identify the maintenance practices most likely to increase efficiency and profitability while reducing downtime.
Oil change procedures that fit your specific application requirements.
AMSOIL Industrial wrote the first Recommended Practice Wind Turbine Gear Lubricant Flushing Procedure for the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
AMSOIL Industrial works with equipment managers and owner-operators to develop and establish correct oil change procedures, whether our customers are looking at a 2-phase, 2+ phase, 3-phase or 4-phase oil change procedure.
