PROLAN STOPS SALT WATER CORROSION ON WINDMILL POWER TURBINES

‘Wintech AS is a Danish company – one of the leading companies in Europe specializing in the repair and maintenance of small to medium sized wind turbines. ‘ Where the wind power really started to prosper and expand all over the world’. They have skills and knowledge to completely overhaul gearboxes, generators, hydraulic and electrical systems, which are the heart of these machines. The turbines are subject to corrosion from an extreme salt water environment . Wintech has solved the problem by using Prolan products – the Heavy Grade is sprayed on steel surfaces during maintenance and installation. Prolan is non-conductive to 70 Kv and can be safely used around the electrical components on the wind turbine systems. The Prolan grease is an excellent anti-seize enabling bolts to be undone years later.

‘Wintech’ have seen the huge difference Prolan has made expecially on wind turbines located offshore. For this reason all subcontracted installation teams are asked to use Prolan during re-installation of the wind turbines.

TOYOTA IN DENMARK CONVERT TO PROLAN

‘TOYOTA’ companies ‘Hanherred & Himmerland Biler’(cars) in ‘Denmark’ who have branches in ‘Aars’, ‘Brovst’ and ‘ Logstor’ continually strive to improve their performance, quality, staff and service, and therefore deliver these to the highest standards. This is now part of their everyday culture which has led ‘Toyota Denmark’ to achieve Environmental Certification DS/EN ISO 14001.

Denrex’s salesman ‘Niels Bilde’ demonstrated ‘Prolan’s’ performance to the team and subsequently they started testing. They quickly saw many of the advantages ‘Prolan’ had at the garage and very shortly after that recommended it to other branches. They found ‘ Prolan’ could be used for many tasks and issues – this reduced multiple stock holdings of other products.

PROLAN PERFORMS WELL ON STAINLESS STEEL TEA STAINING PROBLEMS

It’s ‘Stainless’ not ‘Non-Stain’

BY ADMINNZ ON SEPTEMBER 28, 2012

As Grahame Ansley, one of Anzor’s directors likes to say, stainless steel is ‘stainless’ not ‘non-stain’.Yes stainless steel is corrosion resistant, but depending on a range of factors – the grade, the environment, exposure to rainwater, the surface finish, etc; stainless steel products may be subject to ‘tea staining’ (surface rust) or rusting. Therefore they may require regular cleaning to reduce the risk of this happening.

Have a look at the photo below. It shows a stainless steel tube structure supporting a canopy. It is 3km from the coast, so not particularly close to the sea. You will see that the stainless tube directly below the canopy is obviously tea staining (see B) but the legs are not. Why? Because the canopy is sheltering the tube from rainwater, not allowing it to be washed. This means salt and pollutants build up, eventually damaging the chromium oxide layer that protects the stainless steel, and causing tea staining.

SUZUKI NZ RECOMMENDS PROLAN FOR ATVS FOR RUST AND CORROSION

Suzuki NZ recommend the use of PROLAN spray a lanolin protective coating that resists corrosion and rust. It resists being washed off, resists acids and alkali, the protection is long lasting and doesn’t need re-applying every service.

The new version – PROLAN ENDURO doesn’t leave a sticky residue and becomes dry to touch overnight. PROLAN lubricants help prevent electrolysis caused by dissimilar metals, great for spraying in brake calipers at Pre Delivery (Pads require removal) or before fitting new pads.

The lanolin grease is a longer lasting anti seize compound for drive shafts/pivots and doesn’t soften or damage rubber boots. In corrosive environments such as the dairy industry, products such as this save a lot of unnecessary repairs.

Please visit the PROLAN website www.prolan.co.nz for further information.

All PROLAN products are natural, safe to handle and easy to apply.
