Our products find application in aviation and aerospace industry. We manufacture hydraulic systems for the largest producers of aircrafts, elements working on test rigs, e.g. for testing jet engines and pumps.
PONAR Wadowice has completed a project of a gear testing rig for one of the largest producers in the world. The tests included examination of gears already put into production as well as prototype gear, where the housing was made of a solid material (cast) and new coating on cog wheels where applied.
The test rig designed by PONAR consists of three main elements: a drive system, a lubrication system, and a heat exchange system.
The drive system, responsible for simulating work of a gear under constant load, at various rotation of the drive engine within the scope of 3000-6000 rev./min, consists of the following:
The lubrication system for providing proper lubrication of the gear in certain conditions
(i.e. 150 +/-5 degrees Celsius, 4-6 bar, 7-10 dm3/min) consists of:
Cooling system responsible for cooling oil in the lubrication system by means of plate heat exchangers at the drain. The system was built from the following elements:
