Protective coating and mechanical surface reconditioning for wind-turbine gearboxes and bearings.
Both chemically-active and chemically-inert sides. DuoLife is a revolutionary technological breakthrough at the nanometer scale. The formulation is a suspension of innovative dual-sided sheets, a few nanometers thick. DuoLife nano-sheets are designed with specific properties on opposing sides. The sticky side promotes attachment, while the slick side acts to reduce friction. During normal operation individual sheets deposit on steel gears and bearings producing a self-assembled protective coating.
DuoLife was developed to meet the rigorous demands gears and bearings must withstand in large-scale industrial equipment. The coating adheres while the machine operates to preserve steel surfaces with protection against wear and pitting damage while reducing friction and extending component lifetime. The self-assembling coating is optimized to deposit a particle-by-particle layer – providing a repair-like effect that restores, improves and preserves performance.
Two-part application. The first package, Component A, cures to form a primary base. Component B introduces a secondary top layer increasing mechanical efficiency. Each unit of industrial gearbox treatment is developed for sump reservoir ranges of 40- to 80-gallons.
Easy pour implementation. First, warm up equipment to operating temperature under normal conditions. Simply, shut down the machine, ADD Component A, and restart operation. Allow one hour of runtime, under normal conditions, for nano-sheet dispersion. Again, simply shut down the machine, ADD Component B, and restart operation. Coating formation occurs during operation producing full benefits in approximately four days.
Optimized wear reversal and protection. DuoLife repairs damage from existing wear, as well as, protects against future wear via self-assembling coating properties.
DuoLife is a different product by design. Traditional additives are developed to enhance the oil properties lubricant manufactures already optimize – viscosity, cleaning abilities, and thermal stability – leaving room for marginal improvements. DuoLife nano-sheets, catalytic by design, promote the formation of self-regulating, protective, ceramic oxide-carbide layers on metallic parts engaged in friction. Lubricants aim to slow down inevitable wear. DuoLife provides a coating that actually reverses the existing wear.
