Abstract:

This work presents the friction and wear behaviour of two fully formulated (polyalphaolefin- and mineral-based) wind turbine gearbox oils separately additivated with two ionic liquids ([Choline][NTf2] and [BMP][NTf2]) at 5wt% concentration. A tribometer using a ball-on-plate reciprocating configuration is adopted for friction and wear experiments. Friction is measured during tests and the worn surface is measured and analysed by confocal microscopy, SEM, EDS and XPS. The friction and wear results show that both ionic liquids used as an additive have a slight friction modifier character but a strong wear reducing performance, with [BMP][NTf2] performing better than [Choline][NTf2]. In addition, EDS and XPS analysis demonstrated the temperature-related chemical interactions and their influence on tribological behaviour.
