Notes on usage

Heavily loaded dome bricks and coupling pieces, spindle nuts moved under load, highly stressed, fast-running worm crown gears and screw crowns. Highly stressed valves and pump bodies, stators, impellers and paddle wheels for pumps and water turbines. Load characteristics for worm gears during continuous operation depending on the conduction velocity =1.5 to 8 MPa, for intermittent loads p=20 to 25 MPa.
