Bredel pumps use heavy-duty bearings within the pump rotor, eliminating overhung load
, while the ultra-compact, high-torque gearing aligns directly to the pump housing and is fully protected by an innovative buffer zone.
Denver, CO, July 27, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Gates Corporation, a global, diversified manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, offers a new white paper, “How Belt Drives Impact Overhung Load
.” The educational piece explains what overhung load
(OHL) is, how it is calculated and the negative impact it has on shafts and bearings.
* Reversible, totally enclosed non ventilated permanent split capacitor AC motors and integral gear reducers, featuring all-position face mounting with a 50 lb (22.7 kg.) overhung load
Available in more than 60 different configurations, the Super Clutch can be used in a PTO version with either a keyed output shaft or flange mount for pulleys in overhung load
applications or as a clutch disconnect using Marco's multiple output pump drive gear units.
The Model 1100 Zero-Max overhung load
adapter (OHLA), designed to eliminate premature hydraulic motor or pump bearing failure due to overhung radial and/or axial loads on motors or pump shafts, provides a solid, permanent mounting surface while sealing out dirt and contamination in harsh environments.
Whether the root cause was misalignment, improper belting, poor maintenance or an application-specific issue, such as high overhung load
, the end result is the same: bearing failure at the most inopportune moment.
PD x RPM Where: OHL = Overhung load
, lb HP = Horsepower Fc = Load connection factor (sprocket or synchronous belt = 1.0; machined pinion and gear = 1.25; V-belt = 1.5; flat belt = 2.5) PD = Pitch diameter, in.
The Plymouth, Minn.-based, Zero-Max offers a heavy-duty Model 1100 Overhung Load
Adapter (OHLA) for SAE "D" pump and motor applications that require reliable load support.
Internal ball bearings and needle bearings on the output shaft provide substantial overhung load
durability and quiet operation.
While it provides substantial misalignment capabilities comparable to that of elastomeric or spring-type couplings, it does so with rigid, backlash-free operation with zero overhung load
. A visual alignment tool is included to ensure proper installation.
Zero-Max has introduced the new Model 1100 heavy-duty Overhung Load
Adapter (OHLA) for use with SAE D pump and motor applications that require load support.
