As such, it is necessary to select the right accumulators for both hydraulic and lubrication applications.</p> <p> Wind turbine manufacturers typically speak of having availability levels in the range of 97% to 98%, but a 2008 study by British wind consultants Garrad Hassan found actual availability levels to be lower. In North America, turbines were averaging an availability of 94% to 95%.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/accumulators/air-and-oil-do-mix" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/accumulators/air-and-oil-do-mix#comments Accumulators Tue, 09 Apr 2013 20:23:00 +0000 20401 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
