Gearboxes are employed as speed reducers in cooling towers to lower the rotational speed of the incoming motor to the departing fan. Cooling towers with considerable heat-rejection capacity are required by companies that operate high-capacity manufacturing plants, such as those in the chemical process and power industries.
Without gearbox technology, cooling tower motors would be too big to manage the fan’s torque directly. It would be impossible to transport something so enormous and heavy. Instead, the gearbox’s speed decrease functions as a torque multiplier, allowing the motor to be kept small and the mechanical system to be more cost effective.
Gearbox operation and service are a source of frustration for cooling tower operators and maintenance professionals. Key characteristics reduce maintenance requirements and lengthen the life of the machine.
S. G Cooling Tower Gearbox
The cooling tower fan’s performance is improved by the speed reduction provided by our gearboxes. As the diameter of the fan grows, the fan speed must drop to maintain acceptable sound and vibration levels while also ensuring the fan’s structural integrity. In terms of the motor and fan, incorrect gearbox sizing can cause excessive vibration, loud operation, and tower structural damage.
The fan in big cooling tower applications usually runs at a speed of 100 to 200 rpm. To obtain the appropriate fan speed, the most typical motor speed is 1800 rpm, which requires the average gearbox to reduce motor speed by nine to 18 times. The precise mix of gearbox ratio, fan-blade design, and fan-pitch influences the cooling tower‘s specific performance and energy efficiency in a given application.
