Technical innovation in mixing and agitation processes

MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units are ideally suitable for use in large mixers. With the SAFOMI adapter, NORD is presenting a technical innovation in this application area: a flange with an integrated oil expansion tank, increasing operational reliability and requiring fewer wearing parts.

NORD MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units ensure reliable operation in industries using mixing and agitation processes even under extreme conditions. For agitator applications, the MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units can now also be equipped with a SAFOMI IEC adapter. SAFOMI is the abbreviation for Sealless Adapter For Mixers. This special IEC adapter combines the functions of a standard IEC adapter and an oil expansion tank in a single component. SAFOMI is available for parallel gear units and in the sizes 7 to 11, i.e. for 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 the number of wearing and attachment parts. The SAFOMI-IEC adapter has a compact and simple design, and is equipped with 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. The change to a SAFOMI-IEC adapter instead of the standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive increases operational reliability and lowers maintenance costs. The oil level as well as the required oil volume is lower and thanks to fewer attached components, the installation space is also reduced.
