Material Handling & Storage

Flange Adapter streamlines material handling conveyors.

Direct-mount, worm gear speed reducer, Model CFA700 replaces heavy chain drive on material handling conveyors and is interchangeable with standard 2- and 4-bolt mounted bearings. Adapter attaches to existing side rails, so conveyor redesign is not required. Rubber mounting pads and bushing limit vibration and noise, while PosiVent® Pressure Equalization System eliminates need for...

Speed Reducers feature washdown coating.

Suited for speed reducers, Stainless Bost-Kleen(TM) utilizes Bisphenol-F type epoxy, which offers chemical, pressure, and thermal resistance to prevent wear and cracking caused by caustic chemicals and high-pressure washdowns as well as scratches that may occur from contact during installation and operation. Coating is USDA and FDA accepted, BISCC certified, and available on all speed reducers.

Mechanical Power Transmission

Speed Reducers offer optional pressure equalization system.

Available as an option on all Series 700 speed reducers, PosiVent(TM) keeps water, washdown solution, and other airborne contaminants out of gearboxes in food processing and material handling applications. In aggressive production environments, PosiVent system replaces traditional vent plugs that can allow contaminants to enter gearbox during cool-down. Built with single seam, system can be...
