  • Another Successful AWEA Conference

    posted on Tuesday, May 22, 2018

    Each year, AWEA attracts several large and small turbine manufacturers from around the world and is a great way to make connect with them all in one place. It's also a chance for UEA to showcase our new and existing product lines to potential customers. This is the 14th year that UEA has attended and exhibited at this conference, highlighting our wind turbine slip ring products for the ever-growing industry. This year we showcased a couple of new slip ring designs for both OEM's and the afterma

  • Setting a Higher Standard

    posted on Thursday, May 10, 2018

    United Equipment Accessories' name has become synonymous with quality slip rings for the wind industry. The charge to our Research and Development (R&D) staff is to always do better and perform at the next higher level. To that end we are always researching and testing for a higher level of brush performance in our slip rings. The sliding contacts that transfer power and data from the stationary to rotating member in pitch control systems need to last as long as possible.

  • 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.
