Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. NORD Gear Corporation experts will be providing an exclusive look at new products, motors, conveyors and drive components for the grain industry.

NORD’s MAXXDRIVE industrial gear unit line is just one of the grain handling solutions you’ll see at the GEAPS Exchange Expo, March 9-12, 2019

Shining in the Spotlight

Highlighting NORD’s products as a featured presenter at the GEAPS Expo Ideas Exchange will be, Hani Almoghrabi, NORD’s Large Industrial Drives Product Manager. Almoghrabi will be discussing the newly released MAXXDRIVE® XT, which delivers a full package for bulk material handling. The optimized housing geometry allowing maximum thermal ratings among many other outstanding features and benefits will be discussed by Almoghrabi making this a presenter you will not want to miss.

Among the many remarkable products on display at NORD’s booth will be the Grain Endurance Package (GEP), a cost-effective bundle of product features designed specifically for grain processors. Included in the GEP is a QUADRILIPTM sealing system, a keyless hollow shaft connection, safety cover, Donaldson T.R.A.P. breather, quick disconnects, and an oil sample port. Together the components assure long-lasting performance even in the harshest grain processing environments. Here are a few products sure to grab your attention at the NORD booth:

Maximize your output with MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units

NORD’s MAXXDRIVE series of industrial gear units, ideal for heavy duty applications, are available as parallel helical gear units or bevel gear units. With torque ratings of 132,000 to 2,200,000 lb-in and horsepower ratings of 50 to 2,000 HP, NORD provides optimal application versatility. Other benefits include a keyed and press-fit gear mounting system for maximum power transmission, leak-proof lubrication regardless of shaft orientation, a symmetrical housing design that provides for mirror image installations, various temperature management options, and a design that’s been proven through extensive finite element analysis validation.

Get torqued: Need a high torque gear motor that can operate in virtually any industrial environment? NORD’s line of compact, helical bevel gear motors are available with cast iron or aluminum alloy UNICASE housings, a wide range of flange offerings, up to 250 HP and 440,000 lb-in of torque. They’re ideal for mixers, conveyor belts, mills, and other demanding applications where long service life and flexible mounting options are required.

No more belts: Anyone responsible for conveyor maintenance would be happy to get rid of the belts and pulleys used by traditional systems. NORD has the answer with their Screw Conveyor Package, which offers a compact design that simplifies installation and maintenance of any conveyor. Its QUADRILIP sealing system boasts primary and secondary Viton seals, a dust lip around the output shaft, and a grease-packed felt seal for additional protection against contaminants. As with any NORD drive unit, a number of mounting orientations are available (six, in this case, as well as the option to tilt the unit at an angle), and its modular design provides tremendous flexibility in the field. This means fewer parts, greater efficiency, lower costs, and less hassle.

These are just a few of the many solutions you’ll see at the NORD booth 2133, each offering the flexibility and ease-of-use, which is important to those serving the grain industry. Make sure NORD’s is on your agenda to learn ways to manage your equipment more efficiently, cost-effectively and safely.
