Time for Equifactor®? Maybe Past Time!

Here the text that came with the picture ,,, don’t know if it is true …

Here are some photos of what happens when bearings overheat
in the transmissions of these monster windmills.

To date no gear oil  has been invented to withstand the pressures produced within these transmissions.

Most recently, the government gave Dow-Corning a big  grant to work on it.

Previously, many others had tried and failed.

As they age there will be many  more bearing failures.

Hard to believe that every wind turbine will fail due to inadequate gear lubrication.

I had heard that many wind turbines are not getting proper maintenance.

Wonder what Equifactor® has to say about this?
