PT 500.15 Damage to Gears Kit Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
PT 500.15 - A product from the GUNT 2E range
Technical Description

  The PT 500.15 accessory set-up is used to simulate typical damage to gears and study its effects on vibration behaviour. Various gear sets with tooth damage are supplied for this purpose. Undamaged gear sets are provided for comparative purposes. The difference between spur toothed and helical gearing can also be demonstrated. The influence of the centre distance and backlash can be studied using adjustable bearing plates. The type of lubrication has a significant influence on the vibration signal, so grease or gear oil can be used for lubrication.

  The housing, with holes to accommodate sensors, is used for vibration experiments. The transparent housing cover allows the gear to be observed in operation without taking vibration measurements.
  The PT 500.05 brake and load unit will be required to subject the gear unit to load.
  The accessory set-up is mounted on the base plate of the machinery diagnostic base system PT 500.
  To measure and evaluate the experiment, the computerised vibration analyser PT 500.04 is required. It includes all the necessary sensors, a measurement amplifier and analysis software to record the vibration phenomena.
