Gear Corrosion During the Manufacturing Process
September 1, 2009
No matter how well gears are designed and manufactured, gear corrosion can occur that may easily result in catastrophic failure. Since corrosion is a sporadic and rare event and often difficult to observe in the root fillet region or in finely pitched gears with normal visual inspection, it may easily go undetected. This paper
presents the results of an incident
that occurred in a gear manufacturing
facility several years ago that resulted in pitting corrosion and intergranular attack (IGA).
