NORD has specially developed the SAFOMI-IEC adapter (SAFOMI = Sealless Adapter For Mixers) for agitators. It has a compact and simple design, as well as an integrated oil expansion volume. Oil tanks and hoses as well as the radial shaft seal that is subject to leakage and wear between gear unit and IEC cylinder are not required. Using the SAFOMI-IEC adapter instead of the standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive increases operational reliability and lowers maintenance costs. Not only is the oil level and thus the required oil volume lower, but thanks to fewer attached components the installation space is also reduced.
SAFOMI is available for MAXXDRIVE ®parallel gear units in sizes 7 to 11 and covers maximum output torques from 25 to 75 kNm. The compact combination of MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units, SAFOMI-IEC adapter and drive motor is the best choice for mixer and agitator applications to reduce wearing parts and attached components. MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units have been part of the NORD product range for more than ten years and have proven themselves in countless applications throughout the world. They offer high output torques from 15 to 250 kNm and ensure smooth operation even under demanding conditions.
If you would like to experience the SAFOMI-IEC adapter live, come to the ANUGA FOODTEC 2022 in Cologne. From 26 to 29 April, NORD will present the advantages of this technical innovation at the internationally leading trade fair for the food and beverage industry. NORD can be found in Hall 7.1, stand A030.
