Shaft mount reducers are enclosed helical gear reducers with a hollow result. They are mounted directly on the insight shaft of the driven machine and are supported by the shaft and torque arm set up or motor mount framework. This eliminates the need for additional parts to transmit torque from the reducer to the gear. The elements of a shaft install reducer include:
• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high velocity shaft
• an optional backstop
The Browning® shaft attach reducer, also referred to as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective method of traveling machinery. The shaft install design eliminates the need for support structures that are required in conventional foot installed reducer assemblies. It also eliminates the need for chain, sprockets, couplings and bedplates. In addition, the design minimizes alignment problems.
The compact design of the shaft mounted reducer helps save space. In addition, it allows the unit to be installed at 360 degrees around the shaft and at the end of the conveyor. Additionally, the reducer is quite efficient at approximately 98.5% efficiency per decrease stage. Common industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage handling, grain and wastewater treatment.
