Solution Spotlight: New Speed Reducer Takes On Your Toughest Jobs
Marilyn | March 1, 2008
Baldor has introduced the new Dodge MagnaGear XTR, an extra-tough speed reducer that has been engineered to offer maximum reliability and superior performance in especially challenging, high-torque applications. According to the manufacturer, the MagnaGear XTR is ideal for bulk material handling in dirty, dusty, harsh environments. That means mining, aggregate, cement, wood products and grain industries, where these robust new products are well suited for a wide range of applications, including conveyors, bucket elevators, crushers/breakers, feeders and mills.
Putting proven technology to work
Engineered with proven planetary and helical gear technology, the new MagnaGear XTR line covers a full range of horsepowers, up to 2000 HP. Designed as a global product, the reducers are offered with parallel shaft or right-angle configurations, a solid or hollow shaft output and will initially offer torque capacities up to 920,000 lb-in. Incorporating a modular design that allows for multiple mounting configurations, they can be used with a variety of soft-start mechanisms.
Developed to meet or exceed AGMA and international standards, heavyduty, cast iron units feature carburized, hardened and precision-ground gearing. Tandem HBNR lip seals are standard for extra protection. All bearings exceed AGMA standards for L10 life. All components are power matched for optimum performance at a lower installed cost.
A complete line of engineered accessories are available for MagnaGear XTR, including internal lift-off style backstops, cooling systems, rigid couplings, torque arms, swing base mounts, tunnel housings and baseplate. MT
