GEAPS Exposition Preview: Nord Gear
February 8, 2019—
Nord's MaxxDrive industrial gear unit line is just one of the grain handling solutions you'll see at the GEAPS Exchange Expo, March 9-12, 2019.
No matter what your role is in the grain industry, visit Booth #2133 during the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) Exposition, March 9-12 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Nord Gear Corporation experts will be providing an exclusive look at new products, motors, conveyors and drive components for the grain industry.
Hani Almoghrabi, Nord’s large industrial drives product manager, will be discussing the newly released MaxxDrive XT, which delivers a full package for bulk material handling. The optimized housing geometry allowing maximum thermal ratings among many other features and benefits will be discussed by Almoghrabi during the show.
Nord’s booth will also feature the Grain Endurance Package (GEP), a cost-effective bundle of product features designed specifically for grain processors. Included in the GEP is a Quadrilip sealing system, a keyless hollow shaft connection, safety cover, Donaldson T.R.A.P. breather, quick disconnects, and an oil sample port. Together the components assure long-lasting performance even in the harshest grain processing environments.
Additional product highlights include Nord’s MaxxDrive series of industrial gear units, ideal for heavy duty applications, are available as parallel helical gear units or bevel gear units. With torque ratings of 132,000 to 2,200,000 lb-in and horsepower ratings of 50 to 2,000 hp, Nord provides optimal application versatility. Other benefits include a keyed and press-fit gear mounting system for maximum power transmission, leak-proof lubrication regardless of shaft orientation, a symmetrical housing design that provides for mirror image installations, various temperature management options, and a design that’s been proven through extensive finite element analysis validation.
Nord’s line of compact, helical bevel gear motors are available with cast iron or aluminum alloy Unicase housings, a wide range of flange offerings, up to 250 hp and 440,000 lb-in of torque. They’re ideal for mixers, conveyor belts, mills, and other demanding applications where long service life and flexible mounting.
Nord's Screw Conveyor Package offers a compact design that simplifies installation and maintenance of any conveyor. Its Quadrilip sealing system boasts primary and secondary Viton seals, a dust lip around the output shaft, and a grease-packed felt seal for additional protection against contaminants. As with any Nord drive unit, a number of mounting orientations are available (six, in this case, as well as the option to tilt the unit at an angle), and its modular design provides tremendous flexibility in the field. This means fewer parts, greater efficiency, lower costs, and less hassle.
These are just a few of the many solutions you’ll see at the Nord Booth #2133, each offering the flexibility and ease-of-use, which is important to those serving the grain industry.
