Boston Gear has introduced the stainless steel 700 series worm gear speed reducer for caustic washdown applications in the food and beverage industry. The housings, motor flange and carrier are made from 316 stainless steel to endure harsh washdown conditions, while the integral input worm and shaft are made from high-strength, case-hardened alloy steel for long-lasting performance. The rounded housing design, plastic hardware covers and two-piece mounting base prevent particle accumulation or fluid pooling on or under the unit. Extended wear life is provided by the large internal oil reservoir, which is filled with H1 food-grade lubricant and sealed for life. Boston Gear
