STLE Canton-Cleveland Meeting - April 2018

Grease Selection for Mainshaft Bearing in the Wind Turbines


Date: April 24, 2018 (Tuesday)

Location:  BRAVO Fairlawn, 3265 West Market Street, Fairlawn, OH - 44333

Speaker:   Kuldeep Mistry, ​The Timken Company


 Dr. Kuldeep Mistry has more than 10 years of experience in the field of lubrication. He completed graduate studies sponsored by ExxonMobil at University of Leeds, United Kingdom and worked at the Department of Energy operated National Laboratory for the period of 3 years. Since 2013, I have been at The Timken Company working as a lubrication lead within the organization and worked on developing (and troubleshooting) lubrication/solutions for several applications (automotive, industrial, wind, rail, heavy truck) within the company. Kuldeep enjoys the opportunity to lead and execute challenging projects along with cross-functional teams (sales engineers, service engineers, R&D engineers, application engineers, market management, communication team, and supply chain team members). Kuldeep has led several projects working with the supply chain management team and application engineering team to develop the grease/lubrication solution for new markets.

     Kuldeep is actively engaged in the tribology, greases and lubrication research community through journal publications, presentations and conference attendance. He has published several peer reviewed papers, has 3 patents, chaired STLE Canton section for two years and led the Canton section to win two consecutive Outstanding Section award (2016 and 2017). Kuldeep’s postdoctoral studies received R&D100 Award 2015: “Versatile Hard Carbon Microspheres Made from Plastic Waste”.


ABSTRACT:
      A comprehensive survey of the key performance characteristics for greases used in the mainshaft bearings of wind turbines is presented.  An investigation was completed on the most commonly used greases on the market for this application using a wide variety of relevant industry standardized tests.  Application relevant testing was also performed to directly evaluate the greases’ effect on bearing key operating characteristics.  The results were then compared to known market acceptance, field performance and bearing lubrication best practices to develop an ideal set of criteria for evaluating all current and future mainshaft bearing greases. ​
