Morgan Advanced Materials Rolls Out New Carbon Brushes For Wind Applications

Windsor, U.K.-based provider Morgan Advanced Materials has designed new carbon brushes for wind turbine applications that result in longer brush life and increased generator uptime.

According to Morgan Advanced Materials, its carbon brush technology offers maximum performance in low- or high-load conditions as well as in extreme temperatures. Additionally, the carbon brushes are tolerant to contamination, feature minimal slip ring wear and offer a low brush-to-brush wear differential.

Despite their relatively small size, carbon brushes and related assemblies are a critical component in a generator's overall efficiency and output, the company notes.
