A Gear Box is a contained series of gears designed to transmit speed and torque in a purposeful direction. By nature a rotating power source to another device by changed speed, torque and / or direction.
InterTest Inc. has over 40 years of experience involving Remote Visual Inspection ( RVI) in the gearbox manufacturing industry. From the smallest vehicle transmission units, and wind turbines thru the largest rolling mills in steel plants and heavy industry. Applications such as conditioning monitoring of individual gears, bearings, and other Gear Box components at Intertest Inc. we have the solutions you need.
Typically gearbox inspections are carried out by industry-trained mechanics and technicians. A remote visual inspection of internal gearbox components using a Videoscope can provide all the same indicators of wear or defects as one would see with the naked eye but can be performed without dismantling equipment. Most Gear Boxes have removable plus to insert a Videoscope for inspection. The maneuverability of the articulating section of today’s video borescopes allows controlled access in tight spaces. Image quality is well in the HD range allowing the Technician to view the bearing with signs of discoloration due to overheating.
