APMS (Australian Production Line Maintenance Services) offers mill gearbox repair services. They are currently in the process of rebuilding/rationing a Flender gearbox for a 2700Kw Ball Mill Drive.
The mill gearbox unit had been purchased from a Western Australian mining operation and transported to SA for a new mining operation.
The engineering team decided that for milling efficiency the Flender gearbox needed rationing from 8:1 reduction to 9:1 reduction, and as part of the repair service a complete set of bearings, seals and spacers are to be fitted.
As part of this repair, APMS will also be upgrading the oil lube pump and filtration so that the rebuilt mill gearbox life would be extended.
More information on the range of repair services available can be obtained from APMS.
