Company Profile: Quaker Chemical
For the past eight decades this company has been producing industrial fluids and compounds used in virtually every imaginable manufacturing operation.
Innovative Drivetrain Design
As the heart of a wind turbine, the drivetrain must provide reliability, serviceability, and high efficiency. According to Winergy, the HybridDrive more than delivers.
The Winds of Innovation
The wind turbine industry has emerged as a driving force for the development of a new generation of high-performance industrial lubricants, as Shell explains.
Lubricating Wind Components
Shermco shares the secrets of lubrication route planning, application, sampling, testing, and analysis of rotating and static wind generation components.
Reliable Wireless RTU Systems
New standalone remote monitoring and control solutions enable an innovative class of wireless applications. Banner Engineering provides the details.
An Online Communications Solution
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) systems provide exceptional communications solutions for the wind industry, as NAES explains.
Extending Gear Oil Performance
With the next-generation Optigear Synthetic X 320, Castrol Industrial has developed a superior synthetic lubricant for wind turbines.
Lack of proper planning or poor scope definition during crane walks predictably results in schedule issues and unexpected costs. Here’s how to prepare your path.
Where an OEM scheduled maintenance plan takes only component life into account, a predictive program will include an assessment of the failure mode for each event.
Turbine technology is rapidly evolving to meet the stringent demands of grid stability, reliability, and economic extraction of wind energy from lower average wind speed sites.
Barge is a third viable form of transport for wind components, especially in strategically located wind farms near water access or for the import or export of components.
