Misalignment of a gearbox 2016-10-21T12:49:21+00:00

Project Description

Misalignment of a gearbox

Problem description

  •  24′ Raymond was showing impacts in the time waveform consistent to a tooth problem
  • Also, in velocity spectrum many sidebands of ring gear speed around gear mesh indicating problems with this ring gear
  • This separator has had gearing problems 3 times in the last 2 years.

Time waveform indicating fault

  • Test point:  Ring gear
  • Analysis name:   Time waveform
  • Band name:  Overall
  • Comment:   Single impacting at once per revolution and then there were other impacts showing multiple tooth problems

Time waveform trend

  • Major step change indicates first tooth problem
  • Pictures show trends over 6 (upper) and 7 (lower) month

Vibration Signature

  • Increasing Time Waveform energy with once per revolution impacting and many gear mesh sideband frequencies of Ring Gear speed

Raymond mill – Ring gear failure

  • Misalignment of gearing gearbox
  • Found several broken teeth on ring gear possibly due to age and excessive wear in lower unit causing misalignment
