SCP series Screw Conveyor Gearbox

NORD Drivesystems’ “SCP” series Screw Conveyor
Design gearbox saves costs on installation and
maintenance on screw conveyors.

NORD Drivesystems Au have recently released an innovative range of Helical gearbox and geared motors designed especially to fit screw conveyors to the Australian market. NORD’s “ SCP ” products offer a high efficiency of mechanical power transmission, together with a space saving compact design, and reduced costs of installation. Inclusion of the NORD IE2 high efficiency electric motor close coupled to the gearbox further enhances the high efficiency and compact design. The NORD SCP design eliminates the less efficient and more expensive v-belt drive as traditionally utilized in the screw conveyor industry. This not only reduces the installation costs and time, but also eliminates all costs associated with v-belt maintenance and replacement.

SCP Screw Conveyor Package

The NORD SCP range is particularly suited to U-trough screw conveyors. The standard design features a specially designed flange and shaft to meet CEMA screw conveyor specifications The gearbox on the left features NORD’s IEC electric motor adaptor.

The NORD SCP range comprises of a purpose manufactured output flange housing, that connects the standard NORD Parallel shaft geared motor series externally to the end of a CEMA ( Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association ) specification screw conveyer. The output shaft is tapered and features three holes to also match the CEMA specification. These features also not only facilitate easy mounting and removal, but reduce bearing loads. The NORD SCP products’ external mounting allows quick removal from the screw conveyor, further reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
