Gearbox Temperature Reduction
A major paper manufacturer was experiencingunacceptable wear and out-of-cycle maintenance issues with a gearbox. The issue was root-caused to critical temperatures in the gearbox during continuous operation.
The manufacturer was seeking a solution to lower gearbox temperatures by >10% without installing external cooling equipment.
Comparison testing of two gearboxes (Radicon and Cleveland) with and without DICRONITE® dry lubrication was conducted.
