Understanding and maintaining an effective lubrication system
Follow these guidelines to improve gearing equipment life
For gearing equipment owners and operators, the ultimate goal is to achieve a return on their investment; this is done by both maximizing the output, reliability and efficiency of their machinery, and minimizing downtime and operating costs.
Continued reliability, successful operation and long life of power transmission equipment largely depend upon the constant supply of lubrication oil of proper quantity, quality and condition. The lifeline of the gearbox is its lubrication system, critical for supporting the drive under all modes of operation.
The purpose of a gearbox lubrication system is to provide an oil film at the contacting surfaces of all working components to reduce fric
