  • Diagnosing wear faults - High-throughput screening of wind-turbine gearbox samples using the LaserNet 230 and automatic sample processor (ASP).

    The major issue for premature failure in wind-turbine gearboxes is bearing failure, which leads to gearbox failure. A wind-turbine gearbox will not survive if the oil is not clean and especially if the hard ferrous particles are not removed from around the bearings. The LaserNet 230 particle counter and ferrous debris monitor has been shown to be an excellent analytical tool for end users to ...
