Course Description

Course Description for Maintenance & Troubleshooting of Gears & Gearboxes - ROADMAP TO RELIABILITY

Operation, Maintenance, Trouble shooting of Gearboxes. The training program starts with definition of words gear and pinion and concentrates mainly on gear fundamentals, maintenance and reliability. Further the common base tangent to pair of meshing gears is explained as path of contact and line of action and further the law of gearing or conjugate action of gears is demonstrated. Types of gear tooth forms are discussed and advantages of involute as gear tooth profile are explained. The module and pressure angle of gear is defined. Different types of gears and their advantage in particular type of application is discussed. Then manufacture of gears and quality required for particular application and equipment is discussed. Concept of addendum modification and balanced gear pair design is explained. In running of gears it is important to use correct type of lubricant. Lubrication and cooling of gears is discussed in details considering the type of gear tooth contact and difficulties in lubrication gears. Important considerations in maintenance of gears and gearboxes is discussed. Gearbox lubrication and maintenance schedules as well as gearbox trouble shooting is presented. Importance of selection of gearbox of for reliability centered maintenance is discussed. Selection of gearbox depends on Service factor considered.

What you will learn:
  • Proper installation and maintenance methods.
  • How to determine proper tensions.
  • Correct alignment procedures.
  • The importance of proper lubrication methods.
  • Proper bearing selection.
  • How to spot symptoms of failure.
  • How to select the appropriate remedy.
Course Benefits:
  • Increase operating efficiency.
  • Reduce wear and tear on equipment.
  • Reduce unscheduled downtime.
  • Minimizes losses in production.
Professionals need to know:
All gearboxes must receive periodic maintenance including an oil change. Oil should be checked regularly for contamination from dirt, debris, and other fluids such as water. The oil should also be changed periodically based on hours of operation and on oil temperature. Oil that operates at elevated temperatures (above 150° F), needs to be changed more often than oil that operates at 120° F. As the temperature increases up to 180° F the oil change frequency increases significantly. Between 180° and 200° F the recommended time between changes is reduced by 75%. Elevated temperatures accelerate the breakdown of the oil’s molecular structure thereby inhibiting its ability to form a protective film. If oil continuously operates above 200° F, a circulating lube oil system should be considered to cool the oil.
