Wind power is a green new energy with abundant energy reserves and huge market prospects. Looking at the world, wind power is becoming an emerging energy that countries are scrambling to develop. In the context of green, low-carbon and digital transformation, my country is vigorously developing the wind power industry, and more and more wind farms are being built, and the problems of cleaning and maintenance of wind turbines have become increasingly prominent.
As an advanced technology, laser cleaning is considered to be a "subversive" of the traditional cleaning industry. It has the advantages of high cleanliness, high efficiency, non-contact, and green environmental protection. The cleaning objects include steel, aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, glass and Composite materials, etc., the application industry covers automobile manufacturing, metal molds, shipbuilding, rail transit, aerospace and cultural relics protection and other fields. In fact, in the field of wind power, laser cleaning also has excellent performance.
The wind turbine blade is one of the core components of the wind turbine, which mainly relies on the wind to drive the blade rotation to promote the generator to generate electricity. However, the surface of the blade will be covered with a large amount of dirt when it runs for a long time, which will increase the frictional resistance between the blade and the air when it rotates, and reduce the utilization rate of wind energy. At the same time, the surface of the blade is covered with a large amount of dirt, which is easy to cover up the defects on the surface of the blade, which is not conducive to the discovery of hidden dangers of the blade, resulting in the occurrence of safety accidents. For this reason, regularly cleaning the dirt on the surface of the fan blades is one of the most effective ways to improve the utilization rate of wind energy, ensure the revenue of the power plant, discover blade damage, and investigate potential safety hazards.
The traditional cleaning method of fan blades is to use artificial high-altitude operations, cleaning with brushes and cleaning fluids, which is not only inefficient, but also easy to corrode the organic paint surface with long-term use of chemicals, shortening the service life of blades, and artificial high-altitude operations, there is a huge safety. hidden danger.
Different from traditional artificial aerial work, laser cleaning is safer and more efficient. No additives are required during the operation, no waste water will be generated, and the environment will be polluted. The equipment performance is stable, the operation is smooth and smooth, and the operation is convenient.
At present, the wind power industry has become one of the national strategic emerging industries, and has achieved rapid development under the dual role of industrial policy guidance and market demand-driven. Laser cleaning is regarded as "the green cleaning technology with the most development potential in the 21st century". In the future, it will gradually replace the traditional cleaning process and become an indispensable technology for cleaning and maintenance in the industrial field.
