Adaptive Inner Housing
The BHS AeroMaXX can be installed in a new gear unit or provided as a simple upgrade. The technology consists of an inner housing for the gear set, which fits in the gear unit housing. This is a purely passive mechanical solution and does not need any additional units.
The BHS AeroMaXX technology will increase the efficiency of your system while reducing your oil requirement.
Simple Visual Inspection of Gears
After installation of the inner housing, a visual inspection of the gears is still possible at any time.
This means that you can visually inspect the gears as quickly as usual without removing the upper section of the gear unit or the inner housing.
Apart from the inner housing, the BHS AeroMaXX technology consists of the optimized Voith BHS EcoMax bearings for the high-speed shaft.
The new BHS EcoMax allows you to reach a significant increase in efficiency, with a simultaneous decrease in oil consumption of 30%. Thus the operating conditions of the bearing and the associated product reliability remain unchanged.
Reduced Oil Consumption for Cooling
With the new BHS AeroMaXX technology, the overall oil consumption is reduced by more than 30%. Around 90% of the used oil effectively dissipates the generated heat over the surface of the windage inner housing. This oil is introduced to the front of the steel housing via oil nozzles and drains off. Losses from turbulence are reduced to a minimum.
