Varvel recently published a new product catalog for the FRP680 gearbox, which is specially designed to drive the ground-level linear feeding systems used in poultry farming.The poultry sector is an extremely profitable area of business for Varvel, who have invested heavily in the development of this gearbox to maximize potential for use.

The FRP680 gearbox is designed to drive the helical screw conveyors that deliver feed to the feeders themselves. The gearbox is available in three different versions: an integrated version with a 160 mm input flange and a square output flange; a second integrated version with a 200 mm input flange and square output flange; and a universal version for coupling to custom input and output flanges. Each version is available in different variants, with a flexible input coupling or IEC hole. The gearbox is designed for use with motors from 0.25 kW to 1.5 kW in power.

The new documentation, published in six different languages, contains all relevant technical characteristics, performance data, dimensions and output shaft codes for couplings.

Varvel has also released new editions of the operation and maintenance manuals for gearboxes used in conditions regulated by ATEX standards, i.e. for applications in atmospheres at risk of fire or explosion. The large amount of information provided allows users to work safely and in full conformity to European directives.
