Gearboxes now available in food safe versions
New from Drive Lines is a food safe version of the innovative and popular PowerGear spiral bevel gearbox manufactured by MS Graessner GmbH. It has a gear housing coated with Duralloy-TDC (thin dense chrome), a material which Zurich-based test bureau Labor Veritas has verified as safe for use with food technology equipment.
Duralloy TDC is an extremely hard, crack-free, precise, very thin and ultra-pure metallic chromium layer. It offers a high corrosion resistance, and in particular provides effective protection against friction and vibration related corrosion. It also offers outstanding chemical resistance, making it particularly useful in food industry applications that are subject to vigorous washdown.
These latest PowerGear units also make use of stainless steel shafts that resist corrosion and are lubricated for life with food grade oil. The result is that users developing equipment for hygienic applications can take full advantage of the PowerGear range, which combines a highly compact design with numerous sizes and flexible configurations.
The PowerGear range of high performance bevel gearboxes is characterised by high torques at high speeds from a compact, lightweight package. Output torques of up to 7,000Nm are available.
