Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox FLENDER 118F - 13,5.

This client from The Netherlands came to us with this FLENDER 118F - 13,5. We inspected the gearbox and performed a repair. After a succesful testrun we shipped the gearbox back to the client.

Here is an overview of the work performed on the gearbox for the drive extruder. The gearbox was already completely overhauled by GBS in 2012. During a recent visual inspection, steel particles were found in the filter. The customer has therefore decided to expand the gearbox during a planned stop and have GBS inspected in the workshop. Furthermore, no other complaints were reported to the gearbox in advance. All seals were preventively renewed, bearings only in case of doubt.

The cause of the metal particles in the oil has been found and remedied.

It is recommended to:

- Take oil samples every six months and have them analyzed
- Carry out a visual inspection on the gearbox annually
