As the world transitions from fossil fuels to renewable energy, offshore wind power is leading the charge as a viable alternative. Generating continuous offshore wind power means that offshore wind turbines and the sensors and electrical components within them, must run seamlessly.
Engineers designing and OEMs producing offshore wind turbines, blades, sensors, and inner components choose ZAGO corrosion-resistant sealing fasteners for their unique ability to seal equipment without breakage, rusting or leakage – in harsh weather, salty oceanwater and air, extreme temperatures (hot & cold), torrential rains, hurricanes, tropical storms, snow and high winds repeatedly and over long periods of time.
ZAGO sealing fasteners are engineered with a custom groove underneath the head of the screw. When combined with a rubber O-ring and tightened, the O-ring squeezes outwardly to form a 360° leak-proof, air-tight seal. This impenetrable seal will not break or crack once the screw is torqued preventing seepage or leakage of contaminants, i.e., sand, water, moisture/humidity, dirt, from entering sensitive equipment and damaging it or leaking out and potentially harming our environment.
When it comes to protection, resilience and optimization of high-value, sophisticated equipment, ranging from power grids and solar panels to rechargeable batteries and minute sensors enabling smart technology, time and time again, engineers and OEMs choose ZAGO high-tech, sustainable sealing fasteners, switch boots and crystal seals.
