Wind Energy

Headquartered among high winds along the Gulf Coast plus other locations throughout the United States, CFI provides solutions and long-term support to the wind energy industry.

Hydraulics In Wind Energy

The wind energy industry makes good use of hydraulics, specifically how well it merges power density and durability for the force needed to pitch turbine blades.

In addition to gearboxes, hydraulics is used for pitch control, cooling systems, and lubrication systems. In pitch control systems, the angle of the turbine blades is controlled by a system of hydraulic and electric motors, servos, and actuators to find the optimal pitch for the current wind.

The importance of cooling systems is shown by the fact that components in wind turbines, such as gearboxes, generators, converters, and power packs, become less effective as they heat up during use, making effective cooling important for efficient operation. CFI provides considerable wind energy experience including fluid cleanliness solutions, products, and we are your long-term support.

CFI distributes many high-quality motion control and fluid power products for the wind energy industry.


Messy Rubber Hoses to Pump & Plumbing Upgrade

Wind farms constantly battle hydraulic hose breakdown. To help with this, CFI mounted and hard‐plumbed a pump upgrade on the motor plate.

The Result? Less hydraulic systems failure.

Industry Case Study

CFI Designed & Built Rotary Actuator to Customer Specifications

The customer needed better control of the valve and wanted everything to be remotely automated. In addition, the customer needed a rotary actuator that would provide 1.5 million inch pounds of torque to rotate the valve.
