  • Stainless Steel HERA gear drives have recently been tested and are have passed the tests for IP69K ratings. The Ingress Protection (IP) rating system is an internationally recognized scale that relates to proven protection against environmental factors such as liquids and solids.

    Ingress protection ratings can be identified by the letters IP, followed by two numbers. These numbers define the amount of protection a digital scale has against specified elements and its ability to resist foreign matter that could otherwise get inside the product and cause it to fail.

    The first number refers to the amount of protection a scale or indicator enclosure has against solid matter (such as dust particles), while the second number defines the level of protection against liquids. The larger each digit is, the greater the protection.

    6: Dust tight. No Ingress of dust.

    9k:  Protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature spray downs.

HUBLOC® Advantages

HubLoc® Keyless Bushing System – A positive fret-free shaft connection

 

Versatile - Robust - Available in both Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel

 

When installing a shaft mounted stainless steel speed reducer on a stainless steel shaft, there is always the concern of those two components fret-welding together in a relatively short time span.  Hub City’s two newest stainless steel speed reducers, HERA®and Helical Bevel, are both available with the HubLoc® Keyless bushing system.  The HubLoc® system creates a keyless, backlash-free mechanical interference fit that eliminates the micro-movement that causes fretting and cold welding.  It is a self-centering design that achieves optimum concentricity and eliminates oscillation in shaft mounted applications.  This bushing system includes HubCap™ protective covers are made from metal-detectable plastic to support customer HACCP programs.   Tamper resistant HubCap™ protective covers are easily installed by hand and require a hand tool for removal. No additional hardware is needed.

 

The design of this bushing system allows for a broad range of bore sizes in a single model by providing a positive dual clamping connection with a minimum sleeve wall thickness.
