Screw Conveyor Shaft Mount Gearbox from IronHorse.
IronHorse Shaft Mount Gearboxes (speed reducers) from AutomationDirect feature shafts and gears manufactured from the highest grade steel, case hardened and precision ground to AGMA standards for long lasting durability.
The gearbox shafts have reinforced double lip seals to protect against contamination and prevent oil from escaping; premium ball and tapered roller bearings provide smooth operation and lower noise. Extended gear centers ensure tooth contact and provide consistent operation. Bore type is tapered and bushing kits to fit most shaft sizes are sold separately. Housings are 100% cast iron to provide industrial grade protection for the life of the unit. These shaft mount gearboxes are available in 9:1, 15:1 and 25:1 gear ratios and in frame sizes from 2 to 5.
Shaft mount gearboxes dimensional drop-in for all major motor makes and are used for reducing output speed, increasing torque, changing drive direction, and/or running two loads from one motor in applications such as belt conveyors, screw conveyors, or material handling. Available optional accessories include tapered bushing kits, screw conveyor flanges, screw conveyor drive shafts, belt guards, motor mounts, additional torque arms and backstop assemblies.
AutomationDirect now carries a line of IronHorse Shaft Mount Gearboxes or “speed reducers” featuring shafts and gears manufactured from the highest-grade steel, case hardened and precision ground to AGMA standards for long lasting durability. Optional accessories include tapered bushing kits, screw conveyor flanges, screw conveyor drive shafts, belt guards, motor mounts, backstops and more. Screw conveyors are used in a variety of applications where moving bulk material horizontally or vertically is required. Applications where screw conveyors are utilized are: aggregate and cement agriculture, grain, mining, water, wastewater and more. Screw conveyor accessories can be added to AutomationDirects IronHorse shaft mounted gearboxes in order to be used in screw conveyor applications. The screw conveyor gearbox mounts on the trough end of a screw conveyor. AutomationDirect offers a variety of gear ratios and sizes of gear boxes as well as screw conveyor flanges and drive shafts. Simply add a screw conveyor flange and drive shaft to the properly sized gearbox to couple up to CEMA style conveyor mounts. The screw conveyor flange includes mounting hardware – in this case 4 bolts and washers. For this example we are using a size 2 gearbox PN: SMR2-25 and corresponding screw conveyor flange PN: SMR2-CF and screw conveyor drive shaft PN: SMR2-SDS-24. A motor mount like part number SMR2-MM will be required as well as pulleys and belts in order to drive the gearbox. Don’t forget, AutomationDirect does offer a belt guard to be used in this application as well as electric motors to drive the gearbox. Our Ironhorse Shaft mounted Gearboxes can be mounted horizontally or vertically as shown making integration for screw conveyor applications simple.
