the Allen Gears Epicyclic Efficiency BENEFITS
*based upon a 6,500 kW Power, 14,571/1500rpm,AGMA 4210.06 gearbox.Allen Gears calculated values
The efficiency of a gearbox can have a considerable impact on the overall power plant
output for a gas or steam turbine driven generating set.
Assuming the gearbox is operating continuously, it can be clearly demonstrated that an
Allen Epicyclic Gearbox is more efficient than the equivalent power Parallel Shaft Unit
and provides significant productivity improvement.
All figures based on Allen Gears’ calculations.
By comparing the performance figures of your parallel shaft gearbox with those of a
similar sized Allen Gears Epicyclic gearbox you can see the benefits for yourself.
Just type the details of your parallel shaft gearbox into the spaces provided and also
those of the Allen Epicyclic and then press the ‘calculate’ button to see just how much
better off you could be with an Allen Gears Epicyclic gearbox.
