Yaw Noise Reduction

Svendborg Brakes has turned its expertise on yaw brake noise and developed a solution that can be applied to the majority of installations, an Anti-Glazing Groove.

By cutting a specially-shaped groove into the brake disc it is possible to remove existing glazing and prevent it from occurring in the future. The groove does not increase brake pad wear significantly, but it does help to remove the build-up of powdered material in conjunction with a brush that is installed at the same time.

What is glazing?

  • It is a by-product of braking
  • It is a powdered mixture of removed pad and disc material
  • Glazing performes best at slow speed and constant pressures
  • It happens to all brakes - not only on wind turbines
