Morgan Advanced Materials’ Electrical Carbon business announces new designs and materials for its range of carbon brushes designed for wind turbine applications.

Morgan's brush grades are created to be environment-specific, developed to address the environmental extremes experienced by wind turbines, including scorching heat or corrosive sea salt. The brushes are also engineered for low-humidity atmospheres, a common environmental factor affecting many wind farms.

Morgan’s carbon brushes feature:

  • Low friction due to their film formation
  • Contamination tolerance
  • Minimal slip ring wear
  • 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. Morgan’s carbon brushes are designed 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.

Morgan’s carbon brushes are backed by application engineering, customer service and global reach to support demanding environments.
