“EP series” inline helical gear reducers feature a HP selection of ¼-100 HP, 37-147 mm box sizes, 2:1-120:1 speed ratios and a cast iron casing for unquestioned strength and reliability. Offered in a number of NEMA C-face quill style motor insight flange configurations, the “EP” series allows users to quickly locate off-the-shelf NEMA motors instead of custom gear motors with special first pinion gears. EP’s bolt hole pattern, base to center line elevation, result shaft diameter and usable shaft size match the “R” group of the inline market head making plant retrofitting a breeze.

The precision planetary gear units of the EP series with floor helical gearing and preloaded double taper roller bearings make certain low-noise synchronism because of their immense load holding capacity and rigidity even under high load circumstances. The one-piece world carrier and the built-in needle roller bearings allow the transmission of high torques. The excess shaft sealing band ensures maximum safety against dust and splash water relative to protection class IP65.

EP Gear’s 800 Series contains a focused selection of compact, durable helical equipment drives that provide long-lifestyle performance and simplified maintenance. A broad selection of reduction ratios match a straight broader range of specifications, while a number of insight shaft configurations maximize versatility. In addition, the amount of products that enhance this series of equipment drives make it an ideal choice for today’s commercial distributor.
The 800 Series provides a functional interchange for ep and other European manufacturers’ helical gear drives,rendering it uniquely practical for substitute applications.
Four basic sizes 1/6 – 10 HP
Over 40 different ratios 1.5:1 – 71:1 double-reduction ratios 36:1 – 250:1 triple-reduction ratios
Non-flanged and NEMA c-face input styles
Base-mount and output flange-mount models available
Output-shaft diameters from 3/4″ to at least one 1 5/8″
The typical NEMA C-face design will accept any standard NEMA engine, which makes it exceptionally versatile.
Ratios up to 70:1 in just two levels means increased effectiveness and reduced case size.
Accessible oil seals simplify program product maintenance.
All units can be double sealed upon both input and result to withstand the rigors of also the most demanding applications.
800 Series drives come pre-filled with synthetic lubrication for your unique mounting position.
Sizes 3 and 4 are lubricated for life which promotes trouble-free procedure.
Washdown duty systems in white-colored or stainless steel epoxy coatings make these gear drives perfect for the most severe Washdown.
Right angle bevel speed reducers decrease speed and increase torque from the driver end to the driven end in a drive system. They have a beveled gear that allows the reducer to rotate in both directions and operate with low sound and vibration. They are typically crafted from durable, corrosion-resistant materials like stainless steel.
Features

The exclusive utilization of the involute helicoid thread form on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies and long service life on draglines and shovels. The hardened,ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a simple, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. Because of this, the worm gears use in and improve with extented service while other gears are wearing out.
