POWERFUL MARINE REDUCTION GEARS FITTED WITH ROLLING BEARINGS

The firm "Eisenwereke Reintjes" of West Germany has enlarged its manufacturing program by the new gears series "VA". These large-size gears for higher power ranges are fitted exclusively with rolling bearings instead of the conventional plain bearings. Design fundamentals of the bearing mounting, and bearing mounting of the large marine gears "VA", as well as oil lubrication of gearwheels and bearings are discussed. The gears are designed for a power range of 4400 to 7350 kw (6.000 to 10.000 hp) and are intended predominantly for freighters with single propulsion and occasionally double propulsion plants. Order from NSFI as No. 16677.
