    Repairing Wind Turbine Brakes

    Wind turbine brakes are critical for managing risk and protecting assets in the case of high wind speeds. The reliability and safety of a wind turbine rely heavily on the brake system. If the brake system is damaged, it's crucial they receive the correct repair service and are replaced with the appropriate component parts.

    Used to control and hold movements, wind turbine brakes receive heavy use and must, therefore, be cared for correctly to ensure reliable and efficient performances. Wind turbine operators understand the importance of selecting the correct service provider for maintaining and repairing wind turbine brakes.

    Visual Inspection

    ICP Wind performs a careful visual inspection of friction brake pads. It is critical to identify the minimum required thickness of friction material, as well as pad wear patterns, as this will allow the brake to generate full torque, avoiding slipping

    Replacement Friction Brake Pads

    ICP Wind specialise in established and cutting-edge friction applications for the renewable energy industry. Brakes are key at various locations on a wind turbine. Regardless of size, a turbine structure will require rotor brakes, yaw control brakes, and blade pitch control brakes - all with specific design considerations.

    A key component of any braking system is the friction brake pads. Brake pads are forced against a spinning rotor disc to slow and stop operations. Depending on application variables, the type of friction material can change. ICP Wind manufactures an extensive range of friction brake pads for all types of wind turbine brakes. High-quality friction materials will improve wear, reduce maintenance, manage risks and protect costs.

    ICP Wind has recently invested in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that has the capacity to manufacture all types of friction materials that exceed original equipment specifications. ICP Wind focuses on not just

    Carbex i-BRUSH

    The aftermath of the current pandemic will require businesses to operate in smarter, more remote ways. The Carbex i-BRUSH is a remote performance monitoring system with integrated sensors in the carbon brush. It allows maintenance staff to check brush conditions quickly and efficiently without the need for site visits.

    A plug and play system that monitors carbon brush performance at any time, in any place. Operating conditions are uploaded to the cloud and can be displayed on any smart device or PC. The Carbex i-BRUSH identifies remaining brush life in order for future maintenance to be planned to secure uptime. The system can be retrofitted to any existing installation and is suitable for onshore, as well as offshore applications. Further advantages can be seen below:

    The system monitors brush wear, temperature, humidity, voltage drop, and current distribution. When one of the monitored values deviates outside the giv
