How to Calculate Torque From RPM

Posted on by Kurz Industrial Solutions

In the wind industry, moving parts are the hallmark of a well-oiled machine. Turbines should always have their blades rotating, which equates to electricity generation. These moving parts aren’t all made from a single material, however. Each part connects into the adjacent one. It’s necessary to use couplings throughout a turbine’s design. Elastomeric couplings are [read more…]

Wind Turbines and Heat: Striking a Balance During Operations

Posted on by Kurz Industrial Solutions

The graceful turns of a wind turbine aren’t often associated with heat or friction. They appear like birds on the horizon. From an engineer’s perspective, however, there’s always a concern about overheating. The blades rotate at incredible speeds, which are funneled into internal components that ultimately provide sustainable energy to local businesses and residents. It [read more…]
