VERTICAL SPUR GEAR SYSTEMS FOR KAPLAN OPEN-FLUME TURBINES
This gear concept is especially engineered to fully meet the tough requirements of vertical water turbines. For instance, the turbine shaft is bored hollow so that the rotor blades can be adjusted from above by way of the gear system. The bell is of massive design with suitable fins and is welded directly to the housing. As a result, the weight of the generator is accommodated securely and the risk of critical vibration is minimized. A special wear-free seal system on the input shaft side prevents any lubricant from escaping from the gear system.
POWER RATING: 100 kW to 7,500 kW
OUTPUT SPEED: 750 to 1,000 rpm
RATIO: 2.5 to 7 (single-stage), 5.5 to 18 (two-stage)
The series designed by Eisenbeiss especially for low pressure turbines meets all requirements in terms of space requirements, installation and optimised gear ratios. Naturally, this series also takes into account all the common hydropower malfunction scenarios such as short circuit, power failure and emergency stops. Compared to other products and solutions, Eisenbeiss gear systems deliver higher profits because they deliver the highest efficiency.
