Flender on gear units: Flender gear units represent large range of developed conveyor belt gear units. With three designs, a total of 46 construction sizes and a wide variety of standard construction types, the company has a solution for any drive requirement.
If environmental conditions permit, it makes sense to cost-effectively put together a drive system from the standard portfolio. The appropriate Flender gear units for this are compact, have a high power density and are available in 25 construction sizes. The modular system with its large selection of gear units, motors, bell housings, swing bases and addon parts means that there is something available for every requirement.
For special temperature requirements Flender gear units with optimised housing surface, fans and fan hoods and, if needed, further cooling options are used. They guarantee outstanding heat management and are available in 13 sizes.
Not every mine offers enough space for complicated measuring, alignment and fitting work. Moreover, the need for specialist personnel with the necessary know-how to carry out assembly work represents a challenge to many a mine operator.
The patented self-aligning system is here, as a drive system, the perfect complete solution in the power range up to 550 kW. It is available in eight sizes and, with axial fan, fan hood and the patented ‘Clever-Cooling System’ as an intelligent air-flow guidance system ensures optimised heat dissipation. It offers flexibility for the start-up, both for the space conditions and the location or the assembly effort. No special know-how is needed for conversion or demounting, because the drive unit needs no aligning.
The motor and the gear unit are firmly linked together via a flange. High production quality also ensures the necessary accuracy for connection to the bell housing. By eliminating measuring and alignment errors during initial assembly and installation fault-free operation is ensured.
The self-aligning system may be used as a right or left-hand version without the need for conversion. Fitters are therefore also free to choose which side of the conveyor belt the system is to be fitted on at the site. Qualities that operators of underground mines especially appreciate.
The drive fits very compactly, is transported to the site as a fixed unit, is in- stalled there very easily and ensures maximum availability of your plant.
