Your choice of gearing can have a significant impact on energy usage. Gearing is a common method of speed reduction and torque multiplication. During this process, gearing consumes a certain percentage of power.
Substantial energy and operating cost savings are gained by using highly efficient gearing. 8 to 35% efficiency gains are possible by upgrading to a more efficient, or more properly sized gearbox and energy matched gear components (helical, cyclodial, bevel or planetary).
Contact Applied® at 1-877-279-2799 to discuss the gearing that is best for your application.
A wastewater treatment plant contacted Applied® to replace 10 motors and gearbox units on their primary tank. The plant’s existing gearing was only 34% efficient, therefore presented a great opportunity to increase efficiency and lower energy consumption. Applied® proposed gearing replacements that were 95% efficient. We were also able to specify lower horsepower motors to further reduce energy costs. The customer disclosed a first year energy savings of $5,794.
