Low Speed Gearboxes
There is not a low speed industrial gearbox application for which Philadelphia Gear has not designed and manufactured a solution. Throughout its storied history the company has made some of the highest torque gear drives ever conceived. From its revolutionary design work on vertical roller mill pulverizer gearboxes, to double reduction cooling tower drives used in harsh or corrosive environments, to load sharing conveyor drives, if you have the need, we have the answer.
No one understands the critical nature of this equipment better than Philadelphia Gear. That’s why our extraordinary record of operating for millions of hours, combined with low maintenance costs and high availability rates, is second to none.
From the outset, Philadelphia Gear worked as the Original Equipment Manufacturer designer of record for many of the finest OEMs in the world including: ABB, B&W, Combustion Engineering, Cooper, Dresser, Elliott, Foster Wheeler, GE, Praxair, Rolls-Royce, Solar, as well as many government agencies including the Army Corps of Engineers, NASA, and the US Navy and Coast Guard, among many others.
No Time for Downtime
A recent survey of industrial plant maintenance managers revealed that 85% identified gear drives as being “very critical” to their operations. It is precisely that criticality that we understand best. Philadelphia Gear is a team of highly focused specialists, dedicated to helping the end- users of gear drives get the most out of their mission critical equipment.
