Clutches & Gear boxes  

Course Purposes

This course focuses the supporting elements of a gearbox that allow gears and bearings to do their jobs most effi ciently. Learn about seals, lubrication, lubricants, housings, breathers, and other details that go into designing gearbox systems.

Course Objectives:

 By the end of this course the participant will be able to know
  • Types of housing construction
  •   Drawing practices for housings and related components
  •   Housing elements (covers, inspection ports, sump, mounting, etc.)
  •   Bearing mounting, retention and sealing
  •   Selection and role of gearbox accessories, such as breathers, fi lters, screens, sight gages and other level indication devices
  •   Appropriate lubricant selection
  •   Application of the lubricant to the rotating elements
  •   Selection criteria concerning the basic lubricant chemistry. Since the best design is only as good as its implementation, drawing practices and tolerancing will also be addressed from the designer’s perspective. Learn about translating the general design from the design “Bible” to the individual component drawings.

Course Contents

  •  (A general overview on types of gearboxes)
Gearbox Function and Layout 
  • An exploration of the gearbox in the power transmission environment. Discover the best location of the gearbox for various uses; preparation of detailed design layout of gearboxes; and review detailed drawings to get to know all the various parts within a gearbox.
Gearbox Style 
  • An overview of the various components within gearboxes: open gearbox, arrangement, type of gearing, type of support, lubrication, enclosed gearbox arrangement, and types of gearing will be explored. 
  • An introduction to the wide variety of choice in lubrication for gearboxes. Learn thresholds of each type, methods of applications; and maintenance of cleanliness of lubricant. Instructor will provide details on gearbox breathers, oil level indicators, heat exchangers, operation monitoring instrumentation, health monitoring and instrumentation, oil analysis, and vibration sensors. 
Gearbox Housing, Cover and Sump Design 
  • A lesson in setting up your drawings for various parts of the gearbox. Separate drawings should be prepared for machining, casting, weldment, and other techniques used to produce the fi nal product. Drawings should always utilize Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). Additional discussion on housing types, shaft seals, lip seals, packing, split seals, pressure lubrication of gear meshes and bearings, cast oil passages integral with housing and inspection ports. 
Gearbox Marking/Identifi cation 
  • A list of the various nameplates and markings used when completing gearboxes. 
Gearbox Accessories
  •  There are small parts that have small roles that are still important in the ultimate functionality of a gearbox. A discussion of breathers, caps, vibration monitoring, lube sample ports and drain ports is included here. 
Provisions for Preservation
  •  Once all the hard work is complete - you need to learn how to package your gearbox to transport and complete
