GGB EP®15 - Brave the sun. The recently published article in the trade journal Kunststoffe presents the UV-resistant EP®15 plain bearings developed for Sun & Outdoor Applications

Energy

The article "Braving the Sun" describes the demanding operating conditions that components in solar power plants have to withstand. In addition to constant UV radiation, solar modules are usually exposed to harsh environmental conditions such as dust, sand and wind. In the case of tracking systems in photovoltaic plants, wear due to friction is an additional factor.

Reliability under extreme conditions

 

Self-lubricating EP®15 plain bearings are UV-resistant, lightweight and have a low coefficient of friction. They have been specially developed for use in photovoltaic plants with tracking systems. The absence of lubricants eliminates the need for regular maintenance intervals.
