Oil Conversion in Wind Turbines
As one of the most critical components, the gearbox must operate under extreme stresses and operating conditions. Its critical parts, bearings and gears, must be protected by a lubrication fluid free of contamination and water.Only with the highest cleanliness can the gearbox sustain years of operation under some of the most demanding conditions anywhere. Although the equipment and lubricating oil
may be improved and designed to a maximum lifetime, the possibility of a need for oil conversion over the years can never be entirely eliminated.
Ocean Team has many years’ experience in oil conversion and flushing of geared and hydraulic blade-pitch and braking systems in onshore wind turbines. In wind turbines, gear oil can be changed in just a single lifting operation. With Ocean Team’s oil conversion and flushing system, the operation can be performed quickly and safely for personnel, wind turbine and the environment.
Ocean Team Behind new Hydraulic Oil Conversion System for offshore wind turbines.
Safe, efficient and time saving
The closed conversion system consists of just three main processes:
1) Used oil drainage
2) Gear flushing
All processes are controlled by the oil conversion system, ensuring optimum oil and gear cleaning in a quick, efficient and safe way with minimum risk of oil spillage to the environment. The system offers a perfect solution to a major practical problem in the growing market of offshore wind turbines while meeting all requirements and specifications on environmental protection. It’s another example of the ingenuity in Ocean Team when searching for better solutions to the benefit of our customers.3) New oil filtration and filling
