Wind Turbine Gearbox Inspections Gearbox and Drivetrain Borescoping

High-end video borescopes

Wind turbine drivetrains are subjected to intense static and dynamic loads. These loads take their toll on the rotating elements such as your gearbox and main bearing. Not only are these components some of the highest cost components to replace when something goes wrong but they are also challenging to inspect.

We employ high-end video borescopes to perform our wind turbine gearbox inspections. Our experienced wind turbine gearbox inspectors ensure the best quality inspection and reporting. We also reference our observations against any findings from lubricant analysis and other condition monitoring systems.

Why Drivetrain Borescoping?

Reduce production downtime by avoiding unexpected failures

Identify gear or bearing damages and schedule proactive repairs

Minimise the risk of catastrophic failures and resulting secondary damages

Monitor the condition of your gearbox components

Detailed examination of internal rotating elements

As part of our inspection, we examine the gearbox seals for leaks and degradation along with inspection of the associated gear oil pumping, cooling and filtration systems.

When To Scope?

Other Services

Gearbox inspection is an essential part of things like end-of-warranty assessments and for ongoing periodic condition assessments. We understand that multiple monitoring systems working in parallel area key defensive strategy against the failure of main components. That is why we also offer our customers vibration monitoring services and machine lubricant sampling & examination.
