Hydro Power Industry Solutions  

Hydro Power Industry Solutions 

Improve reliability of pumps and turbines to reduce equipment downtime.

High-performance specialty lubricants, adhesives, sealants and silicone/fluorosilicone elastomers can enhance dependability of hydropower systems and reduce mean time between failures.

Deliver energy on demand with reliability solutions for Hydro Power

In hydropower generation, peak performance of pumps and turbines is critical for operational efficiency. Rising maintenance costs, reduced manpower and increasingly more stringent regulations on environmental impact make reliability a key requirement. Central lubrication systems that operate 24/7, remotely operated hydroelectric plants and lengthy times between inspections and service add to your challenges.

We can work with you to help ensure reliability of pumps and turbines to reduce equipment downtime. Potential solutions from Dow Corning ® to help you deliver energy on demand in Hydro Power include:

  • High-performance lubrication for turbines and turbine-control valves
  • Gearbox, compressor and pump bearing lubrication
  • Heat- and oil-resistant equipment seals and gaskets
  • Advanced lubricants for main journal bearings, generator bearings and gearboxes
  • Vibration-damping lubricants
