Browning Sludge Drive Solution

The environmental conditions associated with water treatment processing can be very corrosive and damaging to mechanical power transmission products. Not only are the external surfaces of these rotating products often corroded but water treatment plant employees are frequently burdened with water intrusion problems as well. This was the case with a mid-western USA municipality. Back-water and sludge formation had entered several of its gear reducers through the output seals. This resulted in lubrication failure, bearing failures, and corrosion. 

Browning® Solution

Four application-specific DESIGN modifications were introduced into two of the failed gear reducers during product rebuild. Those included (1) installation of non-shielded output bearings (2) Increased oil level (3) Addition of an oil dipstick and (4) Installation of a V-ring element at each output shaft extension. Combined, these modifications provided better lubrication to the bearings and seals, allowed for easier maintenance, and discouraged water intrusion.  

Estimated Benefit

This DESIGN solution has been successful. Both rebuilt gear reducers have been in service for over 18 months with no reports of water intrusion. Water treatment is just one of several industries where Perceptiv has extensive experience and can design solutions for unique drive problems.
