According to conventional calculations based on DIN 3990 standard, values of safety factors against tooth breakage for all investigated gearings were calculated.
The graphical method is the same in principle for all planetary gearing problems but varies somewhat in the procedure to be followed depending upon whether the mechanism consists (a) of spur gears having the same circular pitch; (b) of spur gears having different circular pitches; or (c) of bevel gears.
The double-helical gearing is said to eliminate axial loads on the bearings of both the shafts, which means that the rotor bearings are not subject to wear, which is not the case in conventional gear pumps, according to the company.
For several decades, worm gearing has been used in steel mills, machine tools, conveyors, and similar heavy equipment.
However, the rise of electric vehicles is emerging as a challenge for the spur gear market due to the less requirement of gearing.
The core of the Berstorff gear pump is a pair of gear shafts with double helical gearing (figure 1), to prevent axial forces from acting on the bearings of both shafts.
