Gearboxes provide 90 degree shaft direction change

03/09/2012

The W100 multi-turn bevel gearbox has been introduced by Rotork Gears for applications where the input to a gearbox needs to change direction by 90 degrees to allow manual operation. Many such applications involve underground installations and the fully sealed IP68 watertight construction of the W100 is designed with this in mind.

The stainless steel input shaft operates alloy steel bevel gears within an O-ring sealed cast iron gear case secured with stainless steel bolts and fastenings. Two versions of the gearbox are available. The first can be attached to any gearbox that has an ISO F10 or MSS FA10 input flange, whilst the second is specifically designed for use with Rotork AB and IW range quarter-turn gearboxes.

With a rated torque output of 152 Nm (1345 lbf.in), W100 gearboxes are suitable for an ambient temperature range of -40ºC to +120ºC.
