Seals Prolong Reducer Life
The Dodge Maxum XTR concentric reducer comes in a compact ductile iron housing and features a superior sealing system, long-life bearings, and is interchangeable with industry-preferred dimensions, the company says. The carburized and ground gearing meets AGMA Q11 quality standards, as well as the AGMA 2301 cleanliness specification. A standard premium tandem-seal system with HNBR oil seals is protected by an excluder-lip auxiliary seal on all shafts. These seals reportedly deliver high-temperature protection and minimize shaft wear, while preventing ingress of contaminants. The reducers are available in nine case sizes, with torque ratings from 29,500 in-lbs to 579,000 in-lbs.
