A wide range of automatic lubrication products protect wind turbines while they operate. Accurate, reliable, and adjustable lubrication for each lube point keeps critical machinery in the nacelle running at peak performance for increased productivity, lower maintenance costs, and more efficient lubrication where and when it’s needed. Recent products from Graco Inc., Minneapolis, include several mono-block series progressive metering devices ideally suited for lubricating the wind turbine’s critical bearing points.
“Graco’s centralized lubrication equipment covers the broadest range of applications in the industry,” says the company’s Jon Knutson, in charge of industrial lubrication equipment. “Our line of pumps, metering devices, and controllers let customers select equipment that best fit their applications. The devices include simple, straight forward designs for smaller turbine installations, or more advanced lubrication equipment to protect the critical components on today’s large megawatt turbines.”
