Motor - Industry standard, off-the-shelf. NEMA electric or air motors are supplied with all ACUMIX Model AQ, AQG, AQX, AQD & Model AQW mixers ensuring maximum reliability and ease of replacement.
Drive - Low Speed Gear (reduced) driven designs are available to achieve a range of speeds to accommodate and adapt to the required process conditions. Gearbox designed to achieve a minimum of 100,000 hours (11.41 years) L10 bearing life. If you don't know your exact mixer service statistical bearing life it doesn't how well your gears are constructed as once your bearings fail your gearing is useless. All gear drives are designed with a minimum AGMA service factor of 1.5 (moderate shock) based upon the prior more stringent gear standards ensuring your equipment will last like the equipment it replaced. A minimum of 96% gear efficiency (burries inefficient worm gear designs) with no gear ratio exceeding a 7:1 reduction. Supplied with either commercial grade or food grade lubricants upon request.
