HYDAC Guardian Angel gearbox condition monitoring system

Wednesday, 01 July, 2020 | Supplied by: HYDAC International



HYDAC in close collaboration with SEW-Eurodrive Australia has designed a gearbox maintenance solution called ‘The Guardian Angel’.

This solution is an all-in-one turnkey solution, offering condition monitoring, conditioning and isolation of the gearbox. This total isolation means that the gearbox stays free from any ingress of water, dust, moisture, etc.

The aim was to achieve extending the lifetime of the gearbox oil by a factor of 300%, as well as doubling the gearbox oil change interval time, as well as giving access to remote condition monitoring of the gearbox for critical drives.

This solution offers full condition monitoring, including oil condition, water ingress, change in dielectric constant and change of electrical conductivity.

Full conditioning is also offered, involving a totally active lubrication system with a closed-loop high viscosity screw pump, fine filtration and high efficient air blast cooler. Full isolation means zero external contaminants, which is achieved through total isolation by means of breather bag technology.

As a result, the oil in the gearbox is maintained cool, dry, clean and at the required viscosity, with the aim of maintaining optimal lubrication capabilities. The turnkey solution alerts the end user of any anomalies of the system and advises the operator of any required actions. It helps the gearbox’s OEM in its predictive maintenance program, with no surprise downtime and reduction in service costs. This is a solution ready for the future with the possible integration of ferrous particle sensors, vibration sensors and cloud-based capabilities.
