As the FEM analysis was carried out statically and ideally, the gear loading was considered uniformly, the dynamic and overload factors was considered one.
A gear loading test is performed for gears whose tooth surfaces are coated with steel red after steel red is dried, and the gear contact parts are shown in Figure 14, The transmission error of the gear is shown in Figure 15.
Blaine Harbor commercial fishing amenities include 3 web lockers, fenced outdoor storage and a sawtooth pier for nets and gear loading and vessel bulk fueling.
Described as a robust gear alignment and torque monitoring system that can be used with "in service" gear drives it comprises a continuous electronic monitoring system that checks gear alignment and also detects in service gear loading. Initial applications indicate the suitability of this approach for low speed, high torque applications with variable loading--conditions that are typical of many heavy process industry environments.
Chevron Moly grease and Ultra gear lubricants have also improved costs, proving their suitability on the high gear loading experienced on these machines.
All calender drive gearing should be double helical or herringbone, to insure even motion and eliminate end thrust due to gear loading. If the gearing has been removed from the calender, the gear seats and shaft bores should be measured, to determine clearances and roundness.
Consequently, these gears need to be modelled as part of the main mill analysis, in sufficient detail to establish the effect of the gear and gear loading on the mill structure.
