There is no established threshold or limit for gear vibration based condition indicators (CI) that indicates when a gear is in need of maintenance. The best we can do is set CI thresholds statistically, based on some small probability of false alarm. Further, to the best of our knowledge, there is no single CI that is sensitive to every failure mode of a… CONTINUE READING
