In applications where bending moment does not dominate the design of the agitators, gearboxes are selected to withstand the Torque, Bending and Thrust requirements of the agitator. In these installations, agitators are provided with robust, machined, mounting bases. These bases are machined top and bottom to ensure accurate alignment of the gearbox with the base – and the base with the mounting structure. Gearbox cracking and bearing failure can often be attributed to poor gearbox mounting and alignment.
The AFROMIX mounting base design eliminates these problems.
