Lightweight Hygienic Helical Bevel Gear Units from NORD Drivesystems
Clean drive solutions for food technology, conveyors, and beyond
For hygienically demanding applications, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS supplies Aluminum Two-Stage Helical Bevel Gear Units in five sizes with a maximum torque of 660 Nm that are easy to clean. The design is optimized, amongst others, for use in the food industry and complies with international guidelines and standards such as EHEDG, ANSI / BISSC, and ANSI / NSF. If required, the gear units can be fitted with double shaft seals.
The washdown design is based on smooth inclined surfaces, transitions with large radii without dead spaces, and requires no assembly covers. Cleaning liquids wash off easily and completely from the surfaces, which also remain considerably cooler than those of conventional drives thanks to the special construction.
The two-stage gear units are suitable for applications in conveying and lifting equipment, warehouse systems and the food and beverage industry:
- No flaking
- Lightweight housing with high strength
- Cool surfaces
- Corrosion-resistant due to aluminium
- Easy to clean
- Environmentally friendly through minimised lubricant volume
NORD’s two-stage gear units can be ordered as open or closed frame versions with hollow or solid shafts. The rigid construction ensures optimum integration in existing systems and is easy to fit and remove.
