Lubrication Systems for Wind Turbines

Regardless of the wind turbine's design, several bearings and drives require lubrication. The proper centralized lubrication system simplifies service tasks, extends the service interval and protects from atmospheric conditions. Lincoln offers lubrication system solutions that are custom-tailored for applications on blade bearings, main bearing, yaw bearings and generators.


Quicklub Progressive Systems
Quicklub Systems have been designed to meet the toughest requirements of  lubrication of wind turbines with grease or adhesive lubricants. Typical applications in wind turbines are blade bearings, main bearings and generators.

Spray Lubrication: Lincoln HSA spray lubrication that uses compressed air provides an alternative to mechanical application methods.  See Quicklub Progressive Systems, below, for wind power plants.

Lubrication Systems
Regardless of the wind turbines design, several bearings and drives require lubrication. The proper centralized lubrication system simplifies service tasks, extends the service interval and protects from atmospheric conditions.

Expensive, unplanned repairs and downtime are avoided and the life span of the wind turbine is increased. Studies have shown that lubrication systems are amortized within 1.5 to 3 years.

Mechanical Gear Drive Lubrication
The new Lincoln lubrication pinion made from wear-resistant polyurethane, was specially developed for the lubrication of gear drives. The lubrication pinion applies a 100%, constantly renewed lubrication film to the tooth flank, thus reducing wear and providing corrosion protection of the gear drive.
