We specialize in third-party gear engineering, design, installation, risk assessments, inspections, pinion alignments and maintenance audit and full FMEA audits on large scale power transmission equipment commonly used on trunnion and roller supported mill and kiln drives. We can perform gear ratings for current and assist in replacement gear sets, provide support for procurement, and provide complete gear and pinion installation.
We can clean a girth gear set in under 1 hour and inspect the same in under 9 hours; saving valuable downtime and increasing production revenue.
- We provide a complete non-destructive test of the integrity of the mill gear teeth in accordance with ASTM E2905, for macro-pitting, spalling, scuffing, and cracking.
- We can clean a girth gear set in under 1 hour and inspect the same in under 9 hours; saving valuable downtime and increasing production revenue.
- We also provide an onsite failure analysis as per AGMA 1010-F14 of the failure modes present, if any, their severity, and how these might impact the operational function of the mill.
- The final report provides a concise insight for the maintenance team and insurance industry on the level of exposure being presented by any operation relating to girth gear teeth.
- All of this completed in under 10 hours per mill gear.
