NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Develop “Powerful Combination”
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed what they call a "powerful combination for use in mixing and agitation processes".
The new MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units with the new SAFOMI-IEC adapter is specifically developed for mixers to improve operational reliability and reduce the need for the replacement of wearing parts. In combination with the NORDAC FLEX SK 200E frequency inverter for the power range up to 22 kW, a flexible unit with low maintenance is offered.
MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units, an integral part of the NORD portfolio for ten years, offer high output torques from 15 to 282 kNm and ensure smooth operation even under demanding conditions. The FEM-optimised and compact design enables operation under ultimate external loads. For agitation applications, a combination with the SAFOMI IEC adapter (SAFOMI = Sealless Adapter For Mixers) is recommended, in which an oil expansion chamber is directly integrated.
SAFOMI is available for MAXXDRIVE ® parallel gear units in sizes 7 to 11 and covers maximum output torques from 25 to 75 kNm. The SAFOMI is compact and simply deisgned with an integrated oil equalization volume, which means that there is no need for oil tanks and hoses or the shaft sealing ring between the gear unit and the IEC cylinder, which is prone to leakage and wear.
Using the SAFOMI-IEC adapter instead of the standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive increases operational reliability and lowers maintenance costs, claim the company. Not only is the oil level and thus the required oil volume lower, but thanks to fewer attached components the installation space is also reduced.
For the reduction of wearing parts and attached components, NORD recommends a combination of MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear unit, SAFOMI-IEC adapter, a drive motor and NORDAC FLEX SK 200E. The frequency inverter can be flexibly installed and features a high output range as well as a wide choice of optional functions and accessories. The SK 200E can be directly mounted on the motor without a control cabinet.
With more than 4,000 employees, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed, produced and sold drive technology for over 50 years, and is one of the leading global full-service providers in the industry. In addition to standard drives, NORD delivers application-specific concepts and solutions for special requirements such as energy-saving drives or explosion-protected systems.
