Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.
Renewable energy is the future of the planet we live on. HUB Chemical has dedicated itself to this noble career.
Among the various renewable energy technologies, wind and sunlight is massively used to serve the human kind, Wind farms and PV power plants are mostly seen in many parts of the world. Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology is glooming in recent years and it makes 24 hours power generating using sunlight possible.
The performance of gear box oil is critical to a wind turbine, especially for bigger single turbines and offshore wind farms. The heavy duty and complicated salt air and climate has raised requirements on the gear box oil.
PV and CSP projects in certain areas where there is a huge temperature differential at day and night, the sun-tracking systems need proper lubrication as well as precise actuation under extreme low temperatures at the same time, which has put forward higher requirements for the hydraulic oils and greases.
For parabolic trough systems in CSP, 400íŠ heat transfer fluids is used widely to transfer heat collected from sunlight to generate steam and then power. Heat transfer medium with higher operation temperature is needed for better power generating efficiency but it’s still a scientific topic.
In CSP and nuclear power plants, turbine oils are also important to help the turbines work better and longer. Anti-radiation lubricants are also indispensable.
HUB is proud to provide high temperature heat transfer solutions to CSP, and full-round lubrication solutions to wind farms, CSP, PV and nuclear power plants.
