Freudenberg designs new radial shaft seal ring for main bearings in wind turbines

By Michelle Froese The global expansion of wind-power facilities is proceeding unabated. Based on figures from Global Wind Energy Council, nearly 487 GW of output from wind energy were in place at the end of 2016. At the start of the decade, the installed output wasn’t even half that amount. It is not just the number of facilities that has risen sharply – output has climbed as well, especially for wind turbines offshore.
For their new generation of radial shaft seal rings, Freudenberg’s engineers have developed an innovative and durable configured seal lip design to ensure component reliability.
But the longer rotor blades that they
