Power Industry Gearboxes
The Power Industry is a highly mechanised industry for power generation as well as for power transmission. There are various types of power generation such as gas turbine electric power generation, thermal power electricity plants, hydropower electricity plants among others. There are many varieties of gearboxes used in different types of power plants.
Bevel gears are used to change the axis of rotational motion, while parallel shaft gears help to operate machines at high speed. Planetary gears are used in high-speed turbo systems, helical gears help in minimizing noise and power losses.
Spur gearboxes help in transporting power from idler gears to wheels. Some other gears used in the Power Industry are spiral bevel, worm gear etc.
