The constant verifiability of products used is an important component for everyone involved. We continuously receive test results about our REWITEC® products, which analyse and confirm the effectiveness of the application in the wind power industry. The following application examples give a little insight.
Analysis of GE 1.5 SL wind turbine
The analysis of the main gearbox of a GE 1.5 SL wind turbine showed significant differences before and after treating the surface with REWITEC® products. The marks and traces were examined under a microscope with 200x resolution. The following results were clearly demonstrated.
The before / after comparison shows that the pitting damage on the gear flank has fully disappeared after treatment with REWITEC®.
The use of REWITEC® makes it clear that grey staining of the surfaces was removed significantly.

Less friction and temperature in tribological systems means:
- Less stress and wear for gearboxes and bearings
- Greater efficiency
- Less stress on the lubricants
- Greater reliability and availability for use
- Higher return
