Prevent damage to expensive components
Extend maintenance intervals and reduce costs
Increase the reliability of systems
Wind power plants need special lubricants that work reliably, protect components and provide extended maintenance intervals.During operation, wind turbines are subject to a series of intense mechanical stresses caused by the rotational movement of the blades, and for this reason require the installation of an automatic lubrication system capable of providing the correct quantity of lubricant to the components.In general, the installation of an automatic lubrication system leads to an effective increase in reliability by reducing the risk of downtime caused by damage to the components.Thanks to many years of experience in the lubrication sector, FWS offers different solutions for automatic lubrication for the energy sector. Delivering a precise amount of lubricant to the right places and at the right time increases the life cycle of components, as well as extending maintenance intervals.
Perfect operation is due to a combination of several factors: lubrication, used oil analysis, status monitoring and predictive maintenance.
They are different. The most important are: the various bearings, gear boxes, gears and hydraulic systems. The main gear case is the part that requires the most lubricating oil.
The weather has changed significantly over time. Today we can estimate a minimum life cycle of seven years but the objective is to increase it.
There is no standard answer. It depends on the maintenance interval. The oil is checked periodically, and a decision is made based on the results.
