Polymeric Seals for Wind Turbines in Rigorous Conditions

Posted On January 22, 2016

Wind Turbine Seal Challenge

Because of the wide variation in where wind turbines are located, seals are expected to operate under temperatures between -40°F in the Artic to 140°F as a maximum standard operating temperature.  Wind turbines are exposed to UV and ozone, vibration, and high stresses.  Wind turbine parts are expected to last for twenty years – a considerable challenge for such rigorous conditions, but a challenge that is being met.  One area where these issues are being addressed is in the design and retrofitting of seals.
