Specifying the correct mounting position

We visited site recently to look at a gearbox failure on a tough outdoor grout mixing application...

This rather poorly looking Motovario bevel helical gearbox is being used on an outdoor grout mixing application. It had lasted around 12 months, before a major failure. On investigation, the original unit was supplied lubricated for a standard horizontal position. When operating as it is in the photo (What we call B6 position) the unit requires almost double the lubricant. It did well to last a year!

If you ever need assistance with a gearbox selection, application advice or technical support on a geared motor product, give our friendly and experienced team a call on 01924 411 921 or alternatively request a site visit from one of our Area Sales Managers
