The Sharpe E-series worm gear drive meets low leadroom requirements without sacrificing performance. Standard C-face motor mounting is designed for simple trouble-free installation, with positive registers for repeatable alignment. Efficient "high pressure angle" gearing provides extremely quiet operation and high shock-load capacity. The hallow quill gearbox design uses an oversized tapered roller bearing for long overhung shafts, and requires no flange coupling for assembly. Heat and shock loading is isolated between the motor and gearbox.
The E-series mixers are available in top and side entering designs, with mountings ranging from simple open-tank plate mounts to complex mechanical seal systems. Sizes range from fractional to 75 horsepower. Drive housing is corrosion resistant cast iron. Wetted parts are 316 stainless steel standard. Carbon steel, exotic alloys, or coatings are also available when required.
