  2. 2. Tribology of newly developed EAL versus water in hydropower turbine bearings

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Nayan Dhakal; [2019]
    Keywords : water-based lubrication; hydropower; turbine bearings; environmentally adaptive lubricants; modified water; viscosity modifiers; polyvinylpyrrolidone; poly sodium 4-styrenesulfonate ; UHMWPE; wear;

    Abstract : The increasing demand for more readily bio-degradable, renewable and non-toxic environmentally adaptive lubricants with a lower degree of bioaccumulation has escalated the investigation of water-based lubricants as the potential alternatives for conventional mineral-based oils. Water is an excellent environmentally adapted lubricant; however, it is a low viscous fluid and holds downsides of having corrosive nature and extremely low pressure-viscosity coefficient leading to insufficient load-carrying capacity.
