Electrical energy comes from motion, and conversely movement comes from energy. Sealing solutions for motors drive technologies and energy distribution.
Wind power facilities or motors produce torque. Gears strengthen it or increase the rotational speed.
Generators transform kinetic into electrical energy.
Solar plants leapfrog these sub steps and produce electricity directly from sunlight.
Distribution facilities ensure that the electricity arrives where it is needed.
Electric motors ultimately transform electricity back into kinetic energy.
In the end, gears ensure that conveyors, escalators and elevators operate with the required rotational speed and torque to reduce the friction and it is high efficiency.
For each of the described conversions, seals ensure reduced friction and high efficiency. In doing so, they defy adverse environmental conditions and aggressive media, and they offer the service life and reliability.
A sustainable approach to natural resources is becoming increasingly important and is emerging as a question of survival in the long run. The demand for renewable energy from wind power and solar technologies is already climbing. Efficient, reliable, cost-effective, resistant to environmental influences, and trouble-free during installation and maintenance: That's what wind power and solar systems are supposed to be. Decentralized energy production and a dense network expansion require reliable and low-maintenance facilities to transmit and distribute energy.
Wind turbines need protection against the elements, including extreme temperature fluctuation.
Hydraulic seals and accumulators:
- Diaphragm accumulators for control units or brake systems
- Bladder accumulators for control units or pitch drives
- Piston accumulators for pitch drives
- Hydraulic seals for pitch or for brake cylinders
