Shaft install reducers are enclosed helical equipment reducers with a hollow output. They are mounted on the insight shaft of the driven machine and are backed by the shaft and torque arm arrangement or motor mount body. This eliminates the need for additional parts to transmit torque from the reducer to the equipment. The components of a shaft mount reducer include:
• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high rate shaft
• an optional backstop
The Browning® shaft mount reducer, generally known as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective method of traveling machinery. The shaft install design eliminates the necessity for support structures that are necessary in conventional foot mounted reducer assemblies. It also eliminates the necessity for chain, sprockets, couplings and bedplates. Furthermore, the look minimizes alignment problems.
The compact design of the shaft mounted reducer helps save space. It also allows the machine to be installed at 360 degrees around the shaft and by the end of the conveyor. Additionally, the reducer is very efficient at approximately 98.5% efficiency per decrease stage. Usual industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage handling, grain and wastewater treatment.
