Description of Problem

A Michigan-based steel mill installed a new gear reducer on a roughing mill due to damage to the previous reducer. The mill was concerned that transient and steady-state torsional loads transmitted through the previous gear reducer may have exceeded its design limits. Transient torque spikes can last only a few milliseconds but can cause damage to equipment downstream and occur too quickly to be detected measuring only motor current.

 

Description of Solution

In order to prevent damage to the new reducer, the mill utilized Perceptiv solutions to install torque sensors on the spindles of two mill stands. Using a custom data acquisition system, transient torque data was continuously recorded, monitored, and analyzed by the Perceptiv team as the mill operated. The initial diagnostic test confirmed the mill was operating within the design limits of the new gear reducer. The customer then requested the Perceptiv team to continue monitoring peak torque and waveform data and provide weekly reports to help identify any transient torque events.
