Inspection and repair on BUSS G-160 gearbox

  • BUSS gearbox
  • G-160
  • Input=___ rpm / ____ KW
  • NL

Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox BUSS G-160.


This client from The Netherlands came to us with this BUSS G-160. We inspected the gearbox and performed a repair. After a succesful testrun we shipped the gearbox back to the client.

Already in 2014 a specialist from GBS came to the conclusion that this noise came from a loose bearing after observation of oxidation product in the bore of the pos. This conclusion is supported by the observation of oxidation product at the location of this bearing during this inspection. However, the tap can also be a combination of the loose bearing and any excessive play in the pivot bearing.

We advise:
- A comprehensive inspection by removing the upper division
- Let the I-care engineer set an automatic alarm which can warn in time if the amplitude of the tick increases
- Perform a vibration measurement and visual inspection every six months
