      Power distribution gear units are primarily used in situations that exceed the technical limits of what other gear units can handle. As a complex and particularly powerful gear unit, they unite the simple, robust construction of a parallel shaft with the power branching options offered by planetary gear units. This allows them to leverage their advantages in applications that require high rotational speeds and high power. Examples of this include machine trains with gas turbine-driven turbo compressors.

      Technical features

        Voith power distribution gear units convert torque in turbo drive trains at transmitted powers up to
        170 MW or at speeds of up to 100,000 rpm. Even under the harshest conditions, they achieve over 250,000 operating hours. The gear unit efficiency in these high-end applications reaches levels of up to 98 percent.
