Wind Energy Ertalyte PET-P Nacelle Yawing Slide Pad Challenge Ensure smooth and silent yawing of the wind turbine nacelle over long lifetime in all possible weather conditions. Yawing Slide Bearing System allows the Wind Turbine Nacelle to head perfectly into the wind which is required for optimum Energy Generation and to prevent blade fatigue. The system supports the full weight of the turbine Nacelle Rotor and wind forces exerted in any weather condition. The system is based on a yawing ring and a number of calipers which act as a large slew bearing. The calipers hold the slide pads in position while sliding over the yawing ring. Grease is usually applied in order to reduce noise and to prevent corrosion of the metal yawing ring. Our Recommendation Ertalyte Natural PET-P NEW Ertalyte SLP Blue PET-P Ertalyte TX PET-P Sliding Pads for Wind Turbines Key Requirements Low to very low wear to minimize need for replacement during lifetime Low stick-slip so low noise Medium friction to provide some part of required break torque High creep resistance No brittle break at concentrated load in case of tilting nacelle or extreme weather conditions Typical minimum lifetime 10 years Customer Benefits H igh reliability of the yawing system due to extensive proven performance and functional test data provided Cost savings up to 20 versus roller bearing concept Cost savings through longer time between service intervals MCAMconnect Why Ertalyte PET-P Tribological Properties - Wear Rate - Unlubricated 12 8 4 Ertalyte Natural PET-P Technical support during development of application and at material specification Distributed by 0.6 0.49 0.46 0.4 0.34 0.22 0.2 0 Ertalyte Natural PET-P Ertalyte SLP PET-P Ertalyte TX PET-P Competitor 1 PET-P Test conditions Pressure 12 Mpa 1740 PSI Sliding velocity 0.33 msec 65 ftmin Lubricated Castrol-Tribol Counter surface type 42CrMo4 EN10083 Counter surface roughness turned so grooves
