SAG Mill Gearbox

Hercus were engaged by a customer in the mining and mineral processing industry to identify a bearing issue in a SAG Mill Gearbox. 

Oil samples showed signs of metal in the gearbox so it was pulled out of action.

We stripped the gearbox and found a heavily worn roller bearing that had been put under excessive side load causing it to wear prematurely.
