Shaft attach reducers are enclosed helical equipment reducers with a hollow output. They are mounted on the input shaft of the powered machine and are supported by the shaft and torque arm set up or motor mount body. This eliminates the necessity for additional components to transmit torque from the reducer to the gear. The components of a shaft install reducer include:
• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high speed shaft
• an optional backstop
The Browning® shaft mount reducer, also referred to as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective method of generating machinery. The shaft mount design eliminates the need for support structures that are required in conventional foot mounted reducer assemblies. In addition, it eliminates the necessity 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 mounted at 360 degrees around the shaft and by the end of the conveyor. Additionally, the reducer is very efficient at approximately 98.5% efficiency per decrease stage. Usual industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage managing, grain and wastewater treatment.
