WAUNKEE, WISCONSIN, US — NORD, which provides drive systems solutions for the grain industry, will have several of its solutions on display during GEAPS Exchange 2021, Aug. 6-9 in Columbus, Ohio, US.

NORD will be showcasing these specialized products at this year’s show:

MAXXDRIVE & MAXXDRIVE XT Industrial Gear Units that are used wherever high torques are required. These units have high power density and torque, rugged UNICASE housings, and offer high axial and radial load capacities. This makes MAXXDRIVE the ideal solution for the grain industry as it can easily withstand the harsh conditions of conveyor belt use.

MAXXDRIVE units are also built for long service life, offer several mounting positions, and cater to the needs of various installation requirements. With their high performance and flexibility, they are perfect for use in heavy duty applications, such as bucket elevators, agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums, or crushers.

Also available with the MAXXDRIVE units is the Grain Endurance Package. This package combines several additional protective measures that further ensure long life for the units. Features include a drying agent filter, oil inspection glass, oil sample point, quick fit filter trolley connection, and oil drain cock.

Key advantages include high output torque up to 2,495,900 pounds per inch; 11 case sizes; availability as parallel shaft, helical bevel, or right-angle units; no separating joints in housing; and reduced spare parts costs and downtime.

The NORD Screw Conveyor Package (SCP) is designed with the grain industry in mind and offers a compact, cost-effective alternative to traditional screw conveyor drives. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. This minimizes parts inventory and eliminates belted input systems for easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.

NORD electric motors are highly efficient, extremely robust, and can be combined with gear units to provide maximum application flexibility and performance. These motors operate reliably over many years with very high efficiency of up to 95%, reducing operating costs and environmental impact.

NORD produces all motors in-house according to stringent standards and can quickly deliver them worldwide.

In certain applications, standard motors cannot be used because the ambient conditions are too harsh, extremely heavy loads must be moved, or there is an explosion hazard. For these cases, NORD also provides explosion protected motors with a power range from 0.16 to 40 HP.

These explosion-protected versions are available as options for use in dust and gas atmospheres and are certified according to ATEX, IECEx, and HazLoc.
