Gearbox

Gearbox and transmission failures can be extremely costly. Transmissions and gearboxes are interconnecting with other internal and external components of your machinery. Therefore, a defective gearbox will considerably slow down operations or stop production. Similarly, a defective truck or bus transmission or differential may cause irreparable damage to your equipment.

Complex gearboxes can have hundreds of interconnected gears and shafts rotating at high speed, which makes them constantly exposed to friction and heat.

The purpose of lubricating oil is to fill the gaps and avoid friction and wear in-between gears. A regular gearbox oil analysis and condition monitoring program is recommended for the following reasons:

In this context, testing your gearbox oil will allow early detection of potential problems before they impact other components and become critical to the equipment as a whole.
