Nord keeps the grain industry moving with safe, reliable, and efficient solutions to power bucket elevators, conveyors, feeders, slide gates, and more.
Nord offers flexible drive solutions for the grain industry, including bucket elevators, screw, drag, and belt conveyors. These solutions are engineered to provide high load capacities with high output torques, quiet operation, and long service life. NORD’s modular design also makes these products versatile and highly configurable, meeting your exact requirements to achieve optimal system efficiency. Nord will be showcasing a variety of its solutions for the grain industry at GEAPS Exchange Online, February 23rd – 25th. As the annual conference of the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS), the Exchange is the premier event for the grain handling and processing industry.
Register to learn from experts at Nord and how Nord’s high-efficiency gearmotors are powering bucket elevators, drag conveyors, screw conveyors, feeders, slide gates, and other grain applications.
Featured products include:
- MAXXDRIVE – MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units provide high output torque from 132,000 lb-in to 2,200,000 lb-in and are perfect for use in heavy duty applications, such as bucket elevators, agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums, or crushers. MAXXDRIVE is available as a parallel shaft or helical bevel and comes in 11 sizes.
- MAXXDRIVE XT – The newest addition to MAXXDRIVE series, MAXXDRIVE XT delivers maximum thermal and mechanical load capacities for high-speed applications, such as continuous industrial conveying and bulk material handling. It offers the grain industry asymmetrical designed gearbox for mirror image installations, which drastically reduces spare parts costs and downtime. MAXXDRIVE XT comes in seven sizes and provides a torque range of 130,000 lb-in to 660,000 lb-in.
- Screw Conveyor Package – Available for both CLINCHER parallel shaft and helical bevel gear units, the Nord screw conveyor package offers a cost-effective drive solution in a powerful, compact footprint. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gear motor or NEMA C-face input design eliminate the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. This minimizes parts inventory and eliminates belted input systems to provide easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance, and up to 97% gear efficiency.
- 90.1 Helical Bevel Gear Units – Featuring cast iron UNICASE housing, infinite life gearing, and high permissible radial forces. Nord’s 90.1 helical bevel gear units are efficient, versatile units that are adaptable to countless applications. Footed, flanged, foot/flange and CEMA standard screw conveyor mounting 1/2 designs are all available as well as both solid and hollow shaft designs. The 90.1 helical bevel gear units are available in 11 sizes and have a torque range of 1,593 lb-in to 442,500 lb-in.
Nord manufactures a wide selection of gearboxes, electric motors, and drive electronics in various sizes and configurations for companies in intralogistics, food and beverage, airport baggage handling, grain and bulk materials, and other demanding markets. The modular design offers unlimited versatility with more than 20,000,000 combinations of totally unique gear motors and speed reducers available – inline or right-angle, mounted by foot or flange, featuring solid or hollow shafts – to give customers complete freedom to specify a drive solution that’s perfect for the job.
