• High Speed Gearboxes

  • High speed gearbox applications are demanding. It is only with the utmost dedication to design and manufacturing best practices that the kind of speeds that are required by the power generation, gas and oil exploration, refining, and pipeline/pumping industries, among others, can be achieved.

    To further complicate matters, these units are often placed in some of the harshest operating environments in the world. Whether your application is offshore in the North Sea or the Gulf of Mexico, or land-based on the frozen north slope of Alaska or the sun-baked Sahara desert, Torkdrive high-speed drives have an unparalleled record of long-term reliability.


    • High rigidity housing and highly stable bearing enable low noise operation.
    • Application-based, optimized design results in an increased load capacity.
    • Simplified housing design makes for simple maintenance and reliability.
    • Customizable to meet your needs.

  • The features you need, the benefits you'll see

    We've always built our transmissions with one goal in mind: always provide the highest possible uptime.

    Housing - Rugged design adds strength and stiffness to help maintain precise alignment of gears and bearings. Custom cast or fabricated housings are available.

    •Bearings - Split, steel-backed, babbitt-lined precision journal bearings with thrust faces designed to carry axial loads.

    Shaft - Machined from heat-treated high-quality alloy steel. Oversized to keep gears aligned and prevent overloading.

    Gears - Designed, manufactured and assembled using state-of-the-art technology; solid hardened or carburized steel forgings; precision hobbed and ground for precision and exceptional finish.

    Pinion - Integrated with shaft, precision hobbed and ground, in carburized or fully hardened versions depending on specification.

    Seals - Aluminum labyrinth seals prevent shaft leakage at extreme temperatures.

    Efficiency - Over 98% operating at full capacity.

    Dynamic Balance - Ensures smooth operation of all rotating elements at high speed.

    API / Instrumentation – Built to API standards as needed, with a variety of instrumentation options to meet any application requirement.
