Subjective OTR inspections on gear couplings should include Noise, Visual, Temperature, grease leaking, guards and keyway.  Noise could be caused by:

  • Misalignment
  • Imbalance
  • Loose Bolts
  • Lack of Lubricant
  • Chipped Teeth

Listen for abnormal noise.  Wearing/broken coupling may have a high-pitched squeak or rattle.

Do your operators or new Condition Monitoring Technicians need to know the fundamentals of care and inspections?
