Description

SLEWING BEARINGS play a crucial role in the correct operation of wind turbines. They are used in the pitch and yaw positions within a wind turbine, and their main function is to keep the blades turning smoothly regardless of weather conditions. Wind turbines are usually located in places with complex orography favorable for power generation. However, uncertainty about the behavior of the wind means that they must be prepared to withstand extreme conditions. They must deal with any climate, withstand high loads and movements in different directions. For this reason, it is essential to use high quality SLEWINGS BEARINGS, such as those provided by ABS, which guarantee the reliability and performance of the wind turbine even in the most difficult environments, and which allow adequate versatility both for its current application and for other possible applications in the future.

Depending on your needs, ABS can design slewing bearings with the following properties:

  • High stiffness for rigid bearing application
  • High load carrying capacity
  • Low friction
  • Surface protection and corrosion resistance
  • Driving mechanism
  • Lubrication systems
  • Control devices
  • Sealing cassettes
  • Monitoring systems
