RENK MAAG Turbo Gears

In April 2007, the RENK MAAG

GmbH took over the turbo gear G
series from MAAG Gear AG. Turbo
gears have been manufactured by
MAAG for more than 90 years. The
rst turbo gears were designed with
straight teeth with a circumference
velocity of the teeth of more than
60 m/s. Already at that time the
teeth of pinion and wheel were case
hardened and ground. Later the
single helical teeth and the double
helical teeth were introduced, which
have proven their reliability till now.
The turbo gear technology has
continuously been improved and
rened in the past years. Nowadays
the G series is continued by RENK-
MAAG GmbH to the same extent
and can be regarded as completion
of the SG, GB, GN, GS series types.
The most modern technologies and
the latest knowledge gained in the The photograph shows a GD 72.5 HET applied for a power transmission of 75 MW with 99.2%

These gears are specically designed for power
generation and com-pressor drive markets. Power
loss is 50% lower than with a conventional gear. The
efciency of a GD-80, 90 kW gear unit is 99.4%.

Explanation of type designation:

For the turbo gears of G series
the following was introduced: G-80 Standard gear unit type with slide bearing and base centre
distance of 800 mm.
Fully automatic, computer The actual centre distance is determined on the basis of the
supported rating and design operating data.
Optimisation of centre distance
and face width GX-80 Standard gear unit type with slide bearing and thrust collar
Casing made of steel, welded and a base centredistance of 800 mm.
(increased axial rigidity) The actual centre distance is determined on the basis of the

bearing for tooth contact pat- The actual centre distance is determined on the basis of the
tern operating data.
4-lobe support for easy
alignment GD-80 HET Standard gear unit type with slide bearing and double
helical teeth and a base distance of 800 mm, with vacuum
technology to achieve extremely high efciency.
The actual centre distance is determined on the basis of the
operating data.

The single helical teeth of G series may also be designed with thrust collar.
Upon customers request the proven SG, GN, GS and GB turbo gears will
also be supplied in the future. Deliveries of spare parts for turbo gears of
former types supplied and still to be supplied will be guaranteed.
