Power Tips: The Ultimate Stainless Steel Gear Reducer for Harsh Washdowns


The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has affected gear reducer choices for many companies that have food duty and other severe washdown applications. Your choice of gear reducer can impact your compliance during FSMA inspections, which is why it’s very important to invest in a high quality gear reducer that can withstand stringent cleaning and sanitation regimens.

STOBER’s KSS gear reducer is a perfect solution. The KSS is a right angle, helical bevel gear unit that has cast stainless steel. It also features a one-piece housing, so you don’t have to worry about oil leaking from your reducer.

The KSS requires no maintenance and is lubricated for life with Mobil SHC CIBUS 220 food grade oil. It has undergone extensive qualification testing and is IP69K Certified to withstand extreme high pressure washdowns and prevent dust and water ingress. All of these things combine to create an ideal solution that will save you significant amounts of money over time. Additionally, the KSS comes with a 3-year warranty.

STOBER also offers an aftermarket KSS Renewal Program which gives you a second lifetime at half the cost of a new reducer. Our team will refurbish your unit and send it back to you with new bearings, gears, seals, and oil, all with an additional 2-year warranty.
