Gear units for grain and bulk solids handling

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

MaxxDrive industrial gear units provide high output torque from 132,000 to 2,200,000 lb-in. The gear units are suitable for use in heavy-duty applications, such as bucket elevators, agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums or crushers. MaxxDrive is available as a parallel shaft or helical bevel and comes in 11 sizes. For high-speed applications, such as continuous industrial conveying and bulk material handling, the MaxxDrive XT (photo) delivers maximum thermal and mechanical load capacities. This latest addition to the MaxxDrive series offers the grain industry a symmetrical designed gearbox for mirror image installations, which drastically reduces spare parts costs and downtime, says the manufacturer. MaxxDrive XT comes in seven sizes and provides a torque range of 130,000 to 660,000 lb-in. — NORD Gear Corp., Waunakee, Wis.
