Shaft install reducers are enclosed helical equipment reducers with a hollow output. They are mounted on the input shaft of the driven machine and are backed by the shaft and torque arm arrangement or motor mount frame. This eliminates the necessity for additional elements to transmit torque from the reducer to the equipment. The elements of a shaft attach reducer include:
• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high velocity shaft
• an optional backstop
The Browning® shaft attach reducer, generally known as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective method of generating machinery. The shaft mount design eliminates the necessity for support structures that are necessary in conventional foot mounted reducer assemblies. In addition, it eliminates the need for chain, sprockets, couplings and bedplates. In addition, the design minimizes alignment problems.
The compact design of the shaft mounted reducer helps save space. It also allows the machine to be mounted 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 reduction stage. Normal industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage managing, grain and wastewater treatment.
