    Windmill The Windmill application is a very demanding one for the hydraulic pumps industry. Nearly half of the utility grade wind turbines currently in service depends on hydraulic pitch and yaw controls. Many of the others may incorporate the use of hydraulics for braking or utilize a forced lubrication system.
    Since maintenance costs are very high and turbines can be quite difficult to reach, they must run unattended for more than 5 years of continuous operations; thus, it is expected from all parts to run without maintenance , all year round, with a Medium Time Before Failure (MTBF) in excess of 100.000 hours. To this end, all parts and components manufacturers must guarantee a lifetime of more than 20 years in extremely harsh conditions.
    For the Windmill application Settima has faced the many challenges posed by these difficult parameters by developing a range of pumps particularly able to withstand the rigors of windmill installation, both on the ground and in open sea: the SMT SN pump, the SMT16B pump, and the 2VHL Continuum® pump.
    Settima pumps are of the highest quality: they can manage a viscosity of up to 100.000 cSt, all parts are sourced from first class certified suppliers, built with stainless steel fixing screws and hard anodic oxidation (MIL A-8625F and UNI 7796 compliant) to avoid corrosion damage. Additionally, a Magnetic Coupling assembly option can be provived for every Settima pump, ensuring that no leakage of fluid will ever happen, thus increasing the lifespan of the windmill and minimizing the chance of a failure.
