The Ultimate Stainless Steel Gear Reducer for Harsh Washdown
The Food Safety and Modernization Act has ushered in a new era for sanitation in food processing environments. Stringent cleaning and sanitation regiments means you need a gear reducer that can last. In today’s episode of STOBER’s Power Tips, I’ll talk about STOBER’s high value stainless steel gear reducer and how it can handle extreme environments.
Why STOBER created a right-angle helical bevel gear unit called the KSS?
STOBER offers a right-angle helical bevel gear unit called the KSS. The KSS is made from cast stainless steel, electropolished, and then precision machined to maximize product durability. The housing is 1 piece, meaning there are no seams for oil leaks. Harborage points are eliminated, so bacteria will not grow on the reducer surfaces.
The KSS offers high quality input seals
Seals make a huge difference. STOBER uses high quality Freudenberg input seals along with a special input seal maximized for long-life. These seals can withstand harsh washdown and prevent ingress from the motor. The KSS also uses stainless steel oil plugs, which feature neodymium magnets that pull any metal particles out of the oil and hold them.
You can trust the KSS gear unit
Our KSS has undergone extensive qualification testing, including IP69K Certification. This translates to a gear reducer that thrives in the absolute worst washdown and sanitation regiments. Additionally, the KSS comes with a 3-year warranty.
STOBER’s refurbishment program extends your reducer
Gear reducers typically have a life cycle of 8-10 years and might need to be refurbished after years of production. STOBER offers an aftermarket refurbishment program to give you a second lifetime at ½ the cost of a new reducer. When you make the choice to use our KSS refurbishment program, you get your unit back with all new bearings, gears, seals, and ExxonMobil food duty CIBUS 220-H1 lubricant, all backed by an additional 2-year warranty.
