Gearing up for a successful drive solution

When asked about the features defining suitable gear reducers for the mining industry, Lee Quigley, Head Product Management and Global Sourcing, points out the ease of installation and the ability to resist contamination.

In 2015, BSC joined hands with bulk material handling solution provider, ABB, to launch a bulk material handling program, which would consult companies on how to upgrade and improve their existing conveyor belts using the latest ABB solution on offer: The Dodge Motorised Torque Arm II, better known as
the MTAII.

“These drives are designed exclusively for belt conveyor applications and are primarily used in the cement and quarry, grain-handling, and power plant industries,” says Lee. “They have the capacity to be mounted on any standard AC motors and the patented Dodge twin-tapering bushing system allows for easy mounting and dismounting.”

The MTAII is available in single drive assembly, dual drive assembly or screw conveyor drive assembly. Each one is built using heavy-duty tapered roller bearings and case carburised gears throughout.
