Many gear speed reducers in the Power Generating Industry suffer from premature failure of gears and / or shaft support bearings. This paper and presentation describes proven strategies for failure avoidance. It gives cost justification calculations and shows case histories dealing with gearboxes in the Southern United States and other parts of the world. Implementation of these strategies has rapidly demonstrated its cost-effectiveness. Actual installation details are highlighted.
