Turbo planetary gearboxesEnergy, oil and petrochemical industry
Turbo planetary gearboxes are manufactured as type A and B in eight sizes. Type A features a rotating planetary carrier, and the output shaft and drive shaft rotate in the same direction. Type B has a fixed planetary carrier and the output shaft and drive shaft rotate in opposing directions. Both types can be used to increase and reduce speed. These single-stage turbo planetary gearboxes are commonly found in drive units of radial compressors, generators, turbines and pumps.
