Gearbox failure

Description

A competitor's shaft-mounted reducer was leaking oil due to limestone dust contamination. A check of the internal bearings showed premature failure.

Solution

TorqTaper® Plus 307SMTP25

Result

The plant superintendant liked the rotating flinger seal offered on the TorqTaper Plus reducer. The end user stated that the Barrier Seal System with the double-lip seal and v-ring was a great idea for aggregate.
