Nord Drivesystems has developed a powerful combination for use in mixing and agitating technology: The Maxxdrive industrial gear units with the new Safomi-IEC adapter specially developed for mixers improve operational reliability and reduce the need for wear parts. In combination with the Nordac Flex SK 200E frequency inverter for the power range up to 22 kW, a flexible and low-maintenance unit is offered.

The Maxxdrive industrial gear units, which have been in the Nord portfolio for more than ten years, offer high output torques from 15 to 282 kNm and ensure smooth operation even under demanding operating conditions. Their FEM-optimised, compact design enables operation under the highest external loads. For agitator applications, the combination with the Safomi-IEC-Adapter (Safomi = Sealless Adapter For Mixers) is recommended, where an oil expansion tank is directly integrated.

Safomi is available for Maxxdrive spur gearboxes in sizes 7 to 11, i.e. for maximum output torques of 25 to 75 kNm. The adapter not only has a compact and simple design and an integrated oil compensation volume, which means that oil reservoirs and hoses as well as the leakage- and wear-prone shaft seal between the gearbox and IEC cylinder can be dispensed with. It instead of the standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive leads to higher operational reliability and less maintenance. Not only is the oil level and thus the required oil volume lower - thanks to the lack of add-on parts, the installation space is also reduced.

Higher operational reliability with less effort

For additional reduction of wear and attachment parts, NORD recommends the combination of Maxxdrive industrial gear unit, Safomi-IEC adapter, a drive motor and Nordac Flex SK 200E. The frequency inverter is flexible to install and has a high range of performance, a wide range of functions and a wide range of accessories. It can be mounted directly on the motor without a control cabinet.
