Gearboxes for Quarrying and Aggregates

Supplying Gearboxes for quarrying and aggregate processing means you must understand the applications. Getting the right product can save time of money in unexpected downtime.

Some applications include:

  • Conveyors
  • Skip Hoists
  • Screens
  • Tunnel Boring
  • Trommels

Quarrying/Aggregate sites are some of the most arduous and harsh locations for power transmission products. Dust, high shock loads, aggressive environments and hard operating conditions all work against keeping the operations going. 

We understand that the drives used must be durable, reliable, robust and efficient and that the solutions must be fit for purpose and adaptable to all environments, from dry/dusty applications to wet/slurry conditions. This industry works on efficiency and being constantly available to supply their customers 24/7 at short notice.  As such, down time is not an option. 

Common challenges to power transmission drives are thermal efficiency, mounting options and sealing arrangements. We have solutions for all these challenges including a multitude of sealing options, cooling systems, base plate mounted complete conveyor drives and drywells for mixing solutions.
