AGMA 1010-F14 Gear Inspections
Reliability Testing Services performs AGMA 1010-F14 gear inspections to help clients identify precursors to or causes of gear failure. Gears can express signs of wear and damage in different ways as a result of different root causes. AGMA 1010-F14 outlines several gear failure modes, which RTS uses as a baseline for gear inspections. We assess equipment for numerous industries, including girth gears for mills and rotary kilns. Our experts can identify signs of damage early to prevent major gear failure.
Gear Inspection Methods
RTS finds the most efficient and cost-effective solutions to each of our clients’ unique needs. We have several testing and inspection technologies at our disposal, such as oil analysis. We can conduct oil analyses on gear lubricant: a crucial element of gear health. The presence of debris particles in an oil sample could suggest surface degradation or corrosion, depending on the type of particles present. Choosing the correct oil as a lubricant is another key factor in equipment health. RTS can determine what your gear lubricant indicates about your equipment’s condition.
Infrared (IR) thermography is another key tool for diagnosing gear issues. IR thermography is a noninvasive tool for examining thermal patterns in real-time. Areas with elevated temperatures could be symptomatic of underlying gear problems. IR thermography can identify alignment issues or cross-check oil analysis results. RTS also offers balancing and alignment services for instances where testing reveals an issue.
Reliability Testing Services offers predictive maintenance programs that utilize multiple technologies for a more comprehensive analysis of the equipment. We can create a custom program from scratch or supplement your existing program with our services for any desired length of time. We prioritize efficiency, effectiveness, and cost savings when designing inspection programs for our clients.
Additional Inspection Methods
If the scope of an AGMA 1010-F14 inspection extends beyond the capabilities of our predictive maintenance technologies, we can offer additional ATS services, such as failure analysis or nondestructive testing (NDT). Our diverse team of experts can find the best solution to each client’s individual needs. Services such as magnetic particle, ultrasonic, and eddy current testing can analyze gears for surface and subsurface flaws. We make sure clients get the data they need regarding their equipment’s health.
Dedication to High-Quality Service
Reliability Testing Services completes every project with honesty and integrity. Our clients’ safety and efficiency take priority, so we work to minimize unexpected downtime and breakdowns by closely analyzing our clients’ assets. We deliver detailed, accurate reporting in a timely manner, keeping our customers up to date on their equipment’s status.
