Morgan Advanced Materials Electrical Carbon business has announced a number of new designs to its range of carbon brushes for wind turbines.

According to the company, leading-edge laboratory equipment, coupled with years of experience in carbon brush technology, has led Morgan to develop advanced materials to address the environmental extremes experienced by wind turbines, including scorching heat or corrosive sea salt.

The brushes are said to be engineered to deliver high performance in low-humidity atmospheres, and also feature low friction due to their superior film formation.

Morgan adds that its carbon brushes are ideal for wind turbine generators that are subjected to extremely harsh environments, along with other challenges, including sudden changes in wind speed, very low humidity, and the on/off cycling of the generator unit.
