SEW-EURODRIVE to launch X Series Agitator range at AIMEX

The new application gear units for agitators will be showcased by SEW-EURODRIVE at the upcoming Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in September.

SEW-EURODRIVE’s X Series Agitator range is purpose built for agitating and mixing within the mining and minerals processing industries, especially in applications that require high bending moments combined with high levels of torque.

In addition to the torque that has to be transmitted, high radial or axial forces are often brought to bear on the output shaft. With a flexible product concept, SEW-EURODRIVE offers a standardised solution with load-specific bearing and output shaft combinations.

Designed to perform in extreme conditions such as high ambient temperatures or ATEX environments, the new X Series Agitator gear units are available with different options based on the load criteria.

For light loads:

SEW-EURODRIVE offers a model with a universal housing for helical gear units and bevel helical gear units performing in a 6.8 – 475 kNm torque range. Available as 2- to 4-stage helical gear units and bevel helical gear units, the solution is based on the combination of a universal housing with reinforced bearing design.

For medium and heavy loads:

SEW-EURODRIVE offers two models in a 22 – 90 kNm torque range, featuring a roller bearing design with increased bearing distances. All drives are suitable for use in ATEX environments and can be combined with the standard options of ‘drywell’ seal, pressure lubrication/oil bath lubrication, rigid flange coupling, fan cooling, and foot- or flange-mounting.

Available as a 3-stage helical gear unit, the solution has an increased thermal rating thanks to the use of an optimised vertical housing with cooling fins and axial fans.

SEW-EURODRIVE’s new X Series Agitator range will be showcased at the AIMEX on Stand 1311, Sydney Showgrounds, 1-4 September, 2015.
