Marley® Geareducer®: M Series

Lower Maintenance Costs
Marley® M Series Geareducers® require fewer oil changes compared to others that require oil changes multiple times each year.

Long Life Bearings are Standard
All Marley bearings have 100,000 hours minimum L10A service life.

Thicker Housings
Marley M Series housings are 40% thicker.

Cooler Operating Temperatures
Marley Geareducers have 25% greater surface area than other manufacturers, along with 3x larger oil passageways to ensure maximum service life.***

Integral Pinion Shaft
Marley Geareducers have a single piece spiral bevel gear head integrated with the pinion shaft for maximum strength, while other manufucturers will use multiple piece pinion arrangements.

Premium Oil Seal
Marley M Series utilize a premium Inpro seal on input shaft to eliminate grooving and promote long life.

Premium Shims
Marley M Series use steel shims at all necessary casting connection points to maintain gear settings as the unit ages.

Lower Installation Costs
Marley does not require external vent lines, while others do.

Superior Reliability
Marley M Series are designed to be simple, without the need for oil pumps, filters, or other options that add complexity, additional maintenance and potential for failure.

Marley Geareducers have a single piece spiral bevel gear head integrated with the pinion shaft for maximum strength INTEGRAL PINION Amarillo 1712 has a keyed gear for connection to the pinion shaft, resulting in multiple components and increased stress concentrations
Marley M Series utilize a premium Inpro seal on input shaft to eliminate grooving and promote long life OIL SEAL Amarillo standard lip type seals wear against the input shaft which can cause grooving over time that may require complete shaft replacement
Marley M Series use steel shims at all necessary casting connection points to maintain gear settings as the unit ages SHIMS Amarillo uses plastic shims that are more susceptible to fatigue and may lead to gear setting changes over time, which can impact sound, vibration, wear, and life of unit
Oil should be replaced every 3,000 hours OIL CHANGES   Original oil should be replaced after just 500 hours or 4 weeks of operation. Afterwards, intervals of 2 or 3 months may be required for a very moist atmosphere*, resulting in up to $1,419 more in annual oil change costs
Geareducers do not require an external vent line VENT LINE   An external vent line is required in “wet towers”*
*Per Operation and Maintenance Instructions for Amarillo Cooling Tower Drives OMC 1/11
