What different kinds of bearings are used in wind turbines?

A wide range of bearings perform different functions throughout a wind turbine. For instance:

What is the job of a coupling in a wind-turbine drivetrain?

Mechanical couplings connect shafts so one can transmit rotational power to the other while accommodating some misalignment that is almost always present.

Moventas designed Exceed with 20% more torque density, 10% less size and with 100% proven Moventas technology in response to the market challenge to lower the life cycle cost of wind power.

What features should you consider when choosing filters for a wind turbine?

In the wind industry, simple logistics places importance on a well-planned operations and maintenance strategy. The geographic location, weather conditions, and height of most wind turbines make even the most basic gearbox or hydraulic repairs a daunting and costly task. For that reason, filtration is critical in wind turbines. Gears and bearings ride on a

Why lubricant formulation beats additive top treating?

Quality components are integral to a high-performing wind farm, and ongoing care and maintenance of its parts is just as important. Turbines are exposed to some of the harshest conditions in the industrial world, such as extreme temperatures, vibration, and debris. In these conditions, proper equipment lubrication is essential. It can help protect system components,

How are blade materials and manufacturing changing to keep up with larger turbines?

The wind industry has set installation records over the last couple years. That trend may continue with global wind capacity predicted to double in the next five years, according to the Global Wind Energy Council. This growth trend is thanks, in part, to a developing offshore wind market and larger wind turbines with longer blades.
