A new range of shaft-mounted gear units with high load carrying capacities, increased efficiency, quiet running and reliability has been launched by Renold Gears. The new F series units are dimensionally interchangeable with most leading European makes and accept standard IEC motors ensuring fast and low-cost replacement. They also feature an oil-tight gear head to keep motor replacement free from oil spills.
The F Series range is suitable for most industrial applications with torque capacities up to 16,500Nm – providing low cost per Nm – power up to 110kW, and ratios from 5:1 to 100:1 in double reduction, and up to 5,600:1 in combined form.
They can be supplied as double, triple, quadruple and quintuple reduction units in flange or shaft mounted execution. They are available motorised, motor ready or as a reducer with a keyed input shaft. Units in the new range have cast iron casings with an epoxy-polyester powder-coated finish for strength and durability. They are suitable for a wide range of industrial applications including mining, cement and aggregates production, and most conveying requirements, especially where heavy loads may be involved.
