NORD DRIVESYSTEMS (Waunakee, WI) designs, engineers and manufactures scalable drive solutions for all segments of the wastewater treatment industry. Their specialized solutions include corrosion protection, class IP66 or IP69K protection, overload protection, optimized sealing systems, as well as biodegradable and synthetic oil to withstand the fluctuating ambient conditions, humidity and outdoor environments. All of NORD’s gear units are engineered for reliability, versatility, quiet operation and long service life. Specifically:
- UNICASE helical inline gear units have a compact design that allows them to easily fit where installation space is limited, such as with pump applications. These gear units provide flexible configurations with closely stepped ratios, versatile foot or flange mounting, and performance value up to 215 HP.
- CLINCHER parallel shaft gear units provide reliable operation in a compact, robust design. These gear units feature various VL bearing options such as reinforced drive shaft bearings for maximum radial and axial load capacity.
- For grit collectors, screening, and clarification systems, NORD’s helical bevel gear units are an ideal choice. These units are available with foot, flange, or shaft mounting and feature various shaft options – making them adaptable to a wide variety of applications and environments.
- NORD’s solutions for heavy duty applications such as surface aerators, sedimentation tanks, sludge thickeners and agitators include MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units. These drives are designed to handle the toughest loads and produce up to 2,495,900 lb-in of torque. They effectively withstand extreme environments, fluctuating ambient conditions, and an optimized temperature management system that cools the system, increasing the life of lubricants.
