      For high rotational speeds and high power

        Power distribution gear units are primarily used in situations that exceed the technical limits of what other gear units can handle. An example of this includes machine drivetrains with gas turbine-driven turbo compressors requiring high rotational speeds and power. As a complex and powerful gear unit, they unite the simple, robust construction of a parallel shaft with the power branching options offered by planetary gear units.

        Technical features

          Transmitting power of up to 170 MW or at speeds of up to 80,000 rpm, our Voith power distribution gear units convert torque in turbo-drive trains. Even under the harshest conditions, they achieve over 250,000 operating hours with up to 98 percent gear unit efficiency.
