Into-Mesh Lubrication of Spur Gears - Part I
The article "Into-Mesh Lubrication of Spur Gears - Part I" appeared in the May/June 1989 issue of Gear Technology.
Several methods of oil jet lubrication of gears are practiced by the gear industry. These include the oil jet directed into the mesh, out of the mesh and radially directed into the gear teeth. In most cases an exact analysis is not used to determine the optimum condition such as, jet nozzle location, direction and oil jet velocity, for best cooling. As a result many gear sets are operating without optimum oil jet lubrication and cooling.
