Given the expensive nature of replacing critical components up-tower and the resulting loss of energy production, it is understandable that both wind turbine OEMs and operators are highly invested in reliability, efficiency, remote fluid condition monitoring, and ease of scheduled component maintenance. These are all essential elements of successful and profitable operations.
Only with efficient and effective filtration can components such as the gearbox and turbine bearings and lubricating fluids sustain years of trouble-free operation under these conditions, including:
- Wide variations in rotor loads, vibration and temperature
- Ingression of contaminants, either solid (dust), liquid (aerosols or rain), or gaseous (moist air)
- Limited access for unscheduled maintenance
All these factors contribute to increased levels or wear in the gearbox and bearings unless suitably protected using high performance, high efficiency filtration. Attendees to this webinar will learn how Pall filtration solutions help to increase operational life, reduce maintenance costs, and extend service intervals (MTBF).
