Wind turbine condition monitoring
Oil debris sensors monitor bearing and gear wear in wind turbines, providing real-time condition monitoring
Extending bearing and gearbox life
Motors and gearboxes are used to convert wind energy into rotational energy to create power. Oil debris sensors monitor the wear status of these components, informing of issues before they result in failure and the inevitable interruption to operation.
Efficient management of remote assets
Detecting the earliest signs of gearbox and bearing wear using oil debris sensors allows intervention to be scheduled to suit maintenance programmes. This is particularly relevant for inaccessible and remote equipment such as wind turbines.
