Extending wind-turbine life
Published:  31 January, 2014

SKF has launched the SKF Condition Based Lubrication that enables remote and automatic lubrication of a wind turbine’s hard to access bearing system, eliminating the need for an on-site service engineer to perform extra manual lubrication.

SKF Condition Based Lubrication is an interface enabling a connection between the Condition Monitoring (SKF WindCon) and SKF or Lincoln Lubrication systems (SKF Windlub). Reacting to the problems detected by the CMS, SKF Condition Based Lubrication allows a lubrication pump to initiate additional lubrication cycles to the existing time-based cycle. A condition monitoring specialist can set the proper alarm settings to trigger additional lubrication cycles.
