Turbine reducer considerations

- Jan 03, 2019-

1. The worm gear reducer must not hammer the casing of the reducer to avoid damage; check whether the installation foundation, seals and drive shaft are normal. For normal use, the maximum temperature of the lubricant should be less than 85 °C. If the oil temperature rises abnormally, and abnormal noise or other phenomena occur, it is necessary to stop the inspection immediately and remove the fault before continuing to use it.

2. The first time or the new worm gear is replaced, the oil is changed after 150-400 hours of operation, and the worm gear reducer cycle is less than or equal to 4000 hours after the oil change. The oil filling amount shall be in accordance with the requirements of the table. Oils of different grades are forbidden to be mixed. Oils with the same grade and different viscosity are allowed to be mixed.

3. Regularly check the amount and quality of the oil, retain enough oil, and replace the oil mixed with impurities or deterioration in time. The operating temperature of the reducer is -40 to +40 °C. When the ambient temperature is below 0 °C, the lubricant must be heated above 0 °C or a low freezing point lubricant before starting.
