FLOTAX® shaft-mounted gear-units are designed to make your life easier : they are to be fitted directly onto the machine shaft!
They can include the complete drive (motor, V-Belt drive, protection hoods, ...) and can be equipped with various options (Backstops, Dust-proff breathers, ...)
They can be used in, virtually, any position.
The can be ATEX II 2G T4 or ATEX II 2D 120°C certified.
Designed to last
Space-saving due to direct mounting on the driven machine shaft.
Cost-saving as the use of couplings (and alignment) are eliminated and no foundations are required.
Practical due to the easy adjustment of the V-belt tension by means of the torque arm.
Helical gears: as carburised, hardened and ground.
- for gear unit types FC 116 to FC 324 : one-piece housing in special aluminium-alloy,
- for gear unit types FC 414 to FC 822 : grey pearlitic cast iron.
The housings are designed for optimal strength, stiffness and oil tightness.
Shafts and Bearings are adequately proportioned to allow overhung loads generated by the V-belt drive.
Lubrication of gears by splash from the oil bath. The bearings are greased for life.
Sealing ensured by double lip oil seals, running on plunge-ground surface.
8 gear-unit szes from 450 Nm to 7650 Nm.
Output speeds from 12,5 to 125 min-1 with 4-pole motor (50 Hz).
Wide range of V-belt drives.
