When a failure occurs in a wind turbine, maintenance tasks can be costly and take time to complete. But what if there was a way to proactively assess costs, risks, opportunities, and benefits to positively impact the levelized cost of energy (LCOE)?
SKF TMFT 36 is suitable for SKF Bearing series Interference fits on cylindrical shafts Most bearings are fitted to their shaft or housing with one component having an interference fit. For determining the correct fit, refer to the SKF General Catalogue, the SKF Maintenance Handbook or consult an SKF application engineer.
Today, maintenance managers face a difficult task: Although their staff may be very good, they have a large group of machines to look after and may not be able to follow precision maintenance practices.
Condition-based maintenance means that maintenance work is performed only when needed. This enables you to dramatically reduce maintenance expenditures. SKF can help increase profitability in wind farms or turbines through the Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) method, specifically adapted to your turbine needs.
