PLI Offers Controlled Lubrication For Wind Turbines

NAW Staff, Tuesday 31 October 2006 - 09:42:20



PLI LLC, a Racine, Wis.-headquartered provider of self-contained automatic lubricators for a variety of machinery, has introduced the new MEMOLUB 24VDC-EPS model lubricator.

According to the company, the 24VDC-EPS lubricator is designed for applications that operate with a 24-volt DC (direct current) power supply. It can be used in the pitch and yaw drives and in generators in wind turbines, and is reusable with available replacement lube cartridges.

The lubricator operates under its own program control to ensure proper lubrication during periods of equipment operation while avoiding over-lubrication when the equipment is off, the company says. When an external 24-volt DC voltage is supplied to the lubricator, the unit will cycle once and then follow one of the 52 output settings that a user pre-programs.

The MEMOLUB 24VDC-EPS is available in three sizes: the Standard (Model 120), the Mega (Model 240) and the Giga (Model 480).
