Regal to Show Power Transmission Products at AGG1

PTP HIEFF 400Regal Power Transmission Solutions will introduce its new Durst modular hydraulic pump drive in Booth 1230 at AGG1, along with exhibits and demonstrations of shaker screen and Sealmaster bearings, as well as grit-duty gear reducers from Browning, Hub City and Foote-Jones.

The booth will feature an operating gear drive submerged in sand to demonstrate Regal equipment durability, as well as the capabilities of the company's wireless machinery health-monitoring system. Visitors can also use an “Interactive Plant” touchscreen to pull up details on Regal product solutions shown in aggregate and paving operations.

Durst's new hydraulic pump drive uses a patented modular design featuring pump pads and spline adapters that allow rapid build of units to fit almost any input shaft or SAE pump connection. Clever engineering allows a single gear case to fit different bell housings on the driven side. Engineered with modular internal gears and exceptional parts consolidation, the pump's design enables rapid assembly and shipment from build centers throughout the U.S. The compact unit begins with a cast iron housing, AGMA Class 10 spur gearing, heavy-duty ball bearings and a one-piece gear and shaft design for long, rugged service. The pump's patented pad design ensures a continuous flow of oil through the bearing to provide constant wet-spline operation even at startup. Durst, along with Hub City and Foote-Jones, is also structured for rapid development of "one off" modified-standard units and invites inquiries for non-cataloged drives, as well as full custom units.

Hub City's PowerTorque shaft-mount reducers will be displayed in cutaway to highlight the carburized and ground, AGMA-11 gears that provide exceptionally high torque density in a compact package, with up to 98.5 percent efficiency per stage. These versatile units are ideal value-priced drop-in replacements for applications such as bucket elevators and bulk conveyors. A wide range of accessories includes conversion kits for screw conveyor applications. Warranted for 18 months, they feature metal-reinforced double-lip seals riding on precision-ground shafts to deliver long service life. Ready for off-the-shelf delivery, PowerTorque reducers are available in 10 sizes up to 200-hp rating, with output speeds to 200 rpm.

Forty-eight-hour shipment is available on the most popular sizes and ratios of Foote-Jones Line-O-Power helical concentric-shaft reducers. A cutaway display at AGG1 highlights the rugged housings, high-capacity bearings, ground/skived gears and large diameter shafts. Double-, triple- and quadruple-reduction units are available in 10 sizes up to 1550 hp input and 429,300 in.-lb. output. Surface-hardened helical gearing is rated to AGMA standards, and tapered roller bearings on all shafts provide anticipated bearing life in excess of AGMA standards. Models available in the Fast-Foote 48-hour delivery program include double and triple reduction units rated for up to 200-hp continuous input.

Browning's multi-patented TorqTaper Plus helical shaft-mount reducers allow easy installation from front or rear for compact installations with short shaft lengths. A patented three-layer barrier seal is key to the reducer's industry leading three-year warranty. Available for up to 500-hp input, the TorqTaper reducer features carburized, ground AGMA-12 gearing and tapered roller bearings on all shafts, providing high torque densities that allow downsizing in many applications. Larger diameter shafts also allow high overhung loads.

Regal's Rollway business will display its spherical roller bearing for shaker screen applications at AGG1. These units are specially designed for high performance and long life in screening equipment to compensate for the high temperatures and thermal differentials created by the application's high speeds, accelerations and eccentric loads. Radial clearances are increased to between C3 and C4, with reduced tolerances for the bore, outside diameter and internal clearance. A high-quality alternative to more costly products, Rollway shaker screen bearings meet industry standards with a robust design that starts with 100-percent forged rings and superfinished races for long life in adverse, marginal-lubrication conditions. The thick-section, two-piece brass cage is centrifugally cast and machined, guided on the outer race for precision and stability during harsh use.

Sealmaster Paver Bearings will demonstrate why they are industry standard for OEM builders of asphalt equipment. Engineered with various combinations of front and rear double-lip contact seals that withstand temperatures up to 400 F, Sealmaster Paver bearings can further protect interior components with optional front and rear rotating seals, as well as optional shields. The high-temperature components and three layers of protection enable the bearings to effectively shield the interior components and resist the heat and erosion of asphalt. Ductile or cast iron housings are available in eight mounting configurations. The wide inner race promotes stability on the shaft and the wide outer ring provides improved misalignment capability within the housing. A unique land riding brass retainer minimizes wear on both ball and retainer, while maximizing stability. Sealmaster Paver Bearings are factory replacement for the most common brands of asphalt handling machinery.

Sealmaster Mounted Gold ball bearings, USRB mounted spherical roller and RPB mounted tapered roller bearings are engineered with unique and patented features for superior sealing to retain grease and exclude contaminants in harsh environments. The Gold Line of mounted ball bearings utilize the industry's widest outer race and a heavy duty labyrinth seal, allowing for the unique land riding ball retainer and space for the dimple and lock pin to stabilize the insert. This maintains a direct line of lubrication into the bearing cavity. The locking pin and dimple system prevents outer race rotation and allows a full ± 2 degrees misalignment. Sealmaster USRB performance mounted spherical roller bearings feature black oxide treated bearing steel races with optimized geometry for load capacity, misalignment and speed capabilities. The USRB is available in both setscrew locking and adapter mounting system. The felt seal with flinger provides a good balance between contaminant entry, grease retention and friction. RPB Series tapered roller bearings feature rugged split cast-iron housings and cartridge inserts. The inserts are field replaceable to simplify maintenance and maximize uptime. The bearing cartridge is designed to compensate for ± 3 degrees static misalignment. Patented felt lined seals, mounted between the races, act like a filter, and a rotating flinger helps repel contamination buildup on the seals. A positive lubrication system allows direct grease flow into the bearing.
