Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox THYSSENKRUPP KDN 400.

This client from The Netherlands came to us with this THYSSENKRUPP KDN 400. We inspected the gearbox and performed a repair. After a succesful testrun we shipped the gearbox back to the client.

This describes the findings of the inspection of the gearbox of the plate belt. The client commissioned GBS to carry out a visual inspection.

The state of the gearbox is rated as good. No significant damage has been found. The wear images of the various parts are fine.

- The observed foamy substance is probably the result of saponification of the oil, this is a chemical reaction of water with oil. The presence of water in the oil is probably caused by poor ventilation in combination with a low operating temperature.


- It is recommended to change the oil and remove the foamy substance, and to check the air filter.
- It is recommended to perform a visual inspection every year.
