  • Patent number: 10359029
    Abstract: A connection piece for a pitch tube of a wind turbine in which the connection piece comprises a receiving portion into which the pitch tube is at least partially insertable. The connection piece is made from at least first and second parts. The first part comprises a first, at least partially annular sealing surface and the second part comprises a second, at least partially annular sealing surface. The first sealing surface and the second sealing surface, together with part of the surface of the pitch tube, form at least part of a surface that delimits a hollow space for receiving a seal, when the pitch tube is inserted into the receiving portion. At least one element varies the spacing distance between the first sealing surface and the second sealing surface.

  • Publication number: 20070049448
    Abstract: A planetary gear wheel construction with one or several planet wheels which are bearing-mounted on a planet carrier, which is provided in a rotating manner in a housing, and an oil lubrication which is formed of an oil supply via a ring-shaped channel in the housing formed of a ring-shaped groove and a distribution element turning along with the planet carrier which is held in said groove such that it can rotate, and which is provided with a passage to connect said oil channel to an oil channel in the planet carrier which opens at a planet wheel, wherein the distribution element is coupled to the planet carrier by means of a loose connection which makes it possible to transmit the rotational movement of the planet carrier to the distribution element, and in that the oil channel in the planet carrier is connected to the passage in the distribution element by means of a flexible or moving oil pipe.
