Gear units for mixing and agitation applications
Published: 19 June 2020 - Rachael Morling
Used in many applications across the world, NORD’s MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units offer high output torques from 15 to 250kNm. These, the company explains, ensure reliable operation in industries using mixing and agitation processes even under extreme conditions. In addition, the FEM-optimised and compact design enables operation under ultimate external loads.
For agitator applications, the gear units can be equipped with a compact SAFOMI (Sealless Adapter For Mixers) IEC adapter. This combines the functions of a standard IEC adapter and an oil expansion tank in a single component.
SAFOMI is available for parallel gear units and in sizes 7- 11, so for maximum output torques from 25 to 75kNm. It is equipped with an integrated oil expansion volume. According to the company, the change to a SAFOMI-IEC adapter instead of the standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive increases operational reliability and lowers maintenance costs.
