  • Proper Maintenance of Hydraulic Swivels & Systems

    posted on Thursday, May 17, 2018

    Proper or no maintenance of hydraulic equipment can mean the difference between scrapping a machine at 20,000 hours or more instead of 5,000 hours. And because they often are located deep within the workings of machines, hydraulic swivels (also called rotating joints or rotating manifolds) usually receive little or no maintenance. A well-designed hydraulic swivel should not require much maintenance. However, if the swivel is mounted in a location where it is surrounded by hoses or tubing, short

  • How to extend slip-ring life in wind turbines

    posted on Sunday, April 29, 2018

    A healthy wind turbine is a productive turbine, one that can improve a wind owner's ROI. However, even the smallest components can impact a turbine's overall efficiency if damaged or overworked. Proper maintenance and design of turbine components are vital to keeping a wind farm running reliably, and avoiding unscheduled repairs or costly replacements.

  • How to Keep Your Turbine Spinning

    posted on Monday, March 5, 2018

    The design and manufacturing of a slip ring component is imperative to the overall function and efficiency of a wind turbine.When a slip ring fails, power and communication data cannot pass through to pitch mechanisms, and other controls in the hub and top box; this can cause a wind turbine to shut down. This is also why manufacturers have devoted a great deal of engineering and research to developing wind turbine slip rings that last longer, and require less maintenance.

  • Small Slip Rings are a Big Deal

    posted on Wednesday, September 27, 2017

    When most people think of wind turbines, bigger components like motors and blades immediately come to mind. Smaller components, on the other hand, are often overlooked. However, it's those small components that can make or break a system.
