rigs & drillships – gearbox
Gearboxes consist of complex gears and bearings with small tolerances that are subjected to strong forces when converting the engine’s thrust to slower revolutions of the propeller. If the reduction gearbox is not working, then the rig or drill ship is not moving, so it’s critical to keep a high reliability of reduction gearboxes.
If oil in the lubrication systems of gears and bearings in the gearbox is not kept free from particles, oxidation residues and water, they may fail due to particles in oil from abrasive and fatigue wear, and eventually this can lead to gearbox or bearings breakdown. Repairing or servicing a gearbox is very costly.
