The wind power generation industry is growing a phenomenal rates all over the world.
A common challenge is how to minimize maintenance costs, maximize performance while improving the longevity of components.
Turbine manufacturers and wind farm operators in Europe, Asia and the Americas have adopted Triple R as a standard to eliminate the problems of solids and moisture contamination that effects wind turbine gearbox oil life and performance.
The AGMA/AWEA 6006-AXX standard, written by the American Gear Manufacturers Association, provides guidelines for operating and maintaining gearboxes for use in wind turbines, and a very important part of the standard is the cleanliness of the oil employed in the gearbox.
During and after assembly it is suggested that all components be free of any contaminant and that during operation the gearbox oil be maintained with filtration to remove solids, water and sludge.
The Triple R wind power series continuous oil purification by-pass oil cleaner will maintain oil at better than new oil cleanliness levels; Triple R America guarantees it.
