drive shaft / gear
BHS parallel shaft gear units convert torque in turbo drive trains. Three gear unit series cover a power range from 500 kW to 85 000 kW. Gear ratios are available from 1:1 to 20:1.
We adapt our parallel shaft gear units to meet your needs. The BHS parallel shaft gear unit is optimally designed to meet your requirements with respect to gear toothing, housing dimensions, materials, and bearing technology. This ideal fine-tuning and the robust design result in a long lifetime of several decades, typically more than 200 000 operational hours.
BHS parallel shaft gear unit efficiency can reach levels of up to 99.3 percent. The result is high system productivity, especially at gear ratios less than 6:1.
Our customers have been placing their trust in BHS parallel shaft gear units since 1950. More than
7 000 gear units of this type are in use reliably around the world, mostly under very harsh conditions. This happens very often in combination with a BHS rotor turning gear unit and one, two or more BHS diaphragm couplings.
Beside this Voith offers also other types of turbo gear units.
