We are third party mechanical engineers that specialize in gear-driven rotating equipment. We provide gear engineering, design, installation, risk assessments, inspections, pinion alignments, and maintenance audit and full FMEA audits. We can perform gear ratings for current and replacement gear sets, provide support for procurement, and provide complete gear and pinion installation. We offer third party QA/QC support for all critical mill components, girth gears, pinions, shells, heads, trunnions.
Our Predictive Maintenance Program on large girth gears is second to none. We have compiled 13 yrs of data of gear failure modes in an electronic format. We provides an onsite failure analysis of the failure modes present, if any, their severity, and how these might impact the operational function of the mill.
Mil, Gear Inspections:
On the inspection side, we can clean a mill gear in under 1 hour and fully inspect it in under 9 hours, reducing inspection downtime. The final electronic report provides a concise insight for the maintenance team and insurance industry on the level of exposure being presented by any operation relating to girth gear teeth.
Operation and Maintenance:
Global PAM implements an RCM approach to maintenance, and audits of existing maintenance plans. Our field service includes mill gear installation oversight; Pinion installation oversight and Pinion alignments to the mill gear.
