A Gearbox Old Enough to Drink


A gearbox almost old enough to be legally able to drink… Is that even possible?

STOBER’s aftermarket service department recently received a unit in for analysis that was 20 years old. The unit was in a heavy washdown area inside a beverage facility in the Midwest region of the US.

The input had started leaking after two entire decades of operation. Upon inspection, our team determined that the unit’s gears were still precise, and the seals and shaft had minimal wear. How can this be? By using only the best components, STOBER’s gearboxes are the toughest in the world. Our units can withstand even the harshest environments, with an average mean time to failure of 9.1 years in washdown applications.

The customer was immensely satisfied with the quality and durability of the unit. A replacement box was ordered and quickly shipped back to the customer.
