Shaft attach reducers are enclosed helical equipment reducers with a hollow result. They are mounted on the insight shaft of the powered machine and are supported by the shaft and torque arm set up or motor mount framework. This eliminates the need for additional elements to transmit torque from the reducer to the gear. The components of a shaft install reducer include:

• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high quickness shaft
• an optional backstop

The Browning® shaft mount reducer, also referred to as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective approach to driving machinery. The shaft install design eliminates the necessity for support structures that are required in conventional foot mounted reducer assemblies. It also eliminates the necessity for chain, sprockets, couplings and bedplates. Furthermore, the look minimizes alignment problems.

The compact design of the shaft mounted reducer helps save space. In addition, it allows the machine to be mounted at 360 degrees around the shaft and by the end of the conveyor. Additionally, the reducer is quite efficient at approximately 98.5% efficiency per decrease stage. Common industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage handling, grain and wastewater treatment.
