Using data to extend main bearing life through predictive maintenance Recognizing the issue that main bearings, unlike the gearbox, do not have great attention paid to the lubrication, with no filt
The combined analysis of oil sampling with SCADA data showed that the wind turbine under analysis was operating with high gearbox bearings temperatures at a very low power level. During the operation of the turbine, zinc, molybdenum and phosphorus decreased by around 5%.

• Oil Safe lubricant transfer containers are critical to best-practice lubrication programs. Color-coded and fully sealing, these containers ensure the accurate delivery of clean lubricant from bulk storage to gearbox point of use every time.
Turbine Oil Analysis. TestOil offers a variety of Turbine Oil Analysis test packages that provide detailed analysis of the health of your turbine oil. Inherent in the power generation industry are distinct fluid challenges which ultimately decide the operational reliability of plant equipment.
The purpose of oil flushing is to clean the system in contact with the lubricant. Whether it involves a machine, storage container, lubricant line, hose or lubricant conditioning system, flushing is designed to eliminate or control contamination that can negatively affect the performance of the lubricant or machine.
Wind turbine gear oil conversion. Why upgrade your lubricant? When changing the oil in your wind turbine gearbox, there are a number of good reasons to upgrade to an ExxonMobil lubricant: • You want to extend your oil drain intervals to reduce the safety risks associated with maintenance • Total cost of ownership calculations reveal that
Improve Wind Turbine Reliability With Lubricant, Grease and Filter Debris Analysis. TestOil's wind turbine oil analysis program can provide important information about the condition of your lubricants and equipment.
There are many ways to define what constitutes an oil flush. Whether you are discussing oil flushing with contractors, equipment manufacturers or maintenance personnel, it is important to use the same terminology to prevent confusion. This article breaks down oil flushing into four distinct categories and includes when each action
The Takeaway. Keeping your gearbox lubricant clean and free of wear debris will help lengthen the cycle of changes. Filtering and oil analysis when used as part of a normal lubrication management program, will not only keep your lubricant clean, but tell the tale of wear within the equipment. Smart maintainers have already incorporated these strategies, but if you have not, it is never too late.
Maintenance staffs are typically lean and must be as efficient as possible to complete the recommended maintenance in the proper intervals. Streamlined gearbox flushing and oil analysis strategies can help maintenance professionals prolong the life of a wind-turbine gearbox, minimize unscheduled repairs, and simplify maintenance procedures.

Wind Turbine Bearing Failures A large wind turbine manufacturer was experiencing generator bearing failures in its wind turbines worldwide. Noria was hired to conduct a root cause analysis and determine if a change to a different lubricant was needed. Contaminant analysis, tribological studies and analytical ferrography were employed, and the ...
wind turbine gearbox (WTG). System The gearbox is the heart of the wind turbine, converting low speed from the rotor shaft to high speed on the generator side.
Grease Sampling and Analysis for Wind Turbines and other ... program, lubricant analysis is an effective complement to other diagnostic ... New tools have been developed for improved sampling techniques and grease analysis tests have been added to address concerns of sample trending as well as accommodating small sample sizes. ...
gear flushing unit, GFU Optimum Gear Flushing & Oil Filtration - in One System - for Wind Turbine Gearbox Test Benches . The CJC ® Gear Flushing Unit, GFU is designed for cleaning of flushing oil during the flushing procedure of new or refurbished gear boxes. It maintains the oil contamination level low continuous during the flushing process, reducing this period to a minimum.
A method and apparatus for cleaning a bearing, where first, a purging fluid with a high concentration of surfactant is pumped through the bearing in repeated cycles, after which the bearing is flushed, preferably with clean oil, before new grease is provided. The apparatus is compact and comprises preferably a safety valve for preventing overpressure damage to the bearing.
