Developing solutions that will optimise turbine performance and reliability for OEMs, maintenance providers and wind farm operators.
Working in partnership with our customers, including original equipment manufacturers, maintenance companies, and wind farm operators, James Walker is helping to overcome some of the key challenges faced by the wind industry:
Since the very earliest days of modern wind power generation, we have been supplying custom sealing and bolting solutions to the wind industry. In parallel with developments in turbine design, we have continued to invest in production, testing, design, and materials technology. As a result, we have the capabilities to handle the largest diameter seals currently envisioned in turbine developments alongside an on-site joining methodology that allows effective, rapid seal replacement for those turbines now requiring life extension. Complementing our sealing capabilities we also provide bolting solutions that can reduce the maintenance time for bolt tightness checking by as much as 75%.
Ideally suited to large diameter wind turbine shaft and bearing sealing duties.
Accurately measure tension so that it can be correctly achieved, maintained and monitored.
Radial lip seal joining method for on-site joining without the requirement for equipment strip-down.
