Processing sugar is seasonal work, requiring high
output mill drives to run at high loads once the cane has been harvested.
Philadelphia Gear technical experts are available to make sure these
drives are running at maximum capacity when the busy processing
season comes around. And if there should be a gearing problem during
processing, Philadelphia Gear engineers work with plant staff in
a timely fashion to determine the best and fastest way to solve
the problem - whether it be a repair, upgrade, or drive replacement.
Gearboxes ranging from 400 to 1800 HP are used to
power the machinery that grinds raw sugar cane. With a remarkable
record of successful rebuilds and replacements of these products,
Philadelphia Gear is recognized globally as the leading expert in
power transmission equipment for the sugar industry. Since the sugar
cane harvesting and processing season only lasts a few months, operators
can use the other half for maintenance and refurbishing. Philadelphia
Gear's regional service and manufacturing facilities
make shipping of these huge pieces of equipment easier and faster
for the operator.
