Grove Gear stainless steel products are designed to meet the stringent requirements in food processing, packaging and beverage industries. Featuring a smooth surface finish for easy-to-clean, sanitary operation, the products include worm, helical-worm and helical-bevel gear reducers and ratio multipliers. The worm reducers are offered in six sizes with ratings to 17 hp. Single and double reduction units are available with ratios from 5:1 to 3,600:1. Double-lip, Viton seals protect the units against harsh environments. In addition to helical gearing for system efficiency, the ratio multiplier features ratings to 4.7 hp and ratios from 2:1 to 7.5:1. It can be used as a standalone, single-reduction inline reducer or as a bolt-on to the input of a C-face gear reducer to multiply overall ratio reduction. Lubed for life, the units can be combined with a Leeson Washguard all-stainless motor to create a complete power transmission package.
