“EP series” inline helical gear reducers feature a HP selection of ¼-100 HP, 37-147 mm box sizes, 2:1-120:1 speed ratios and a cast iron housing for unquestioned strength and reliability. Offered in a number of NEMA C-face quill style motor input flange configurations, the “EP” series enables users to quickly locate off-the-shelf NEMA motors instead of custom equipment motors with special first pinion gears. EP’s bolt hole pattern, foundation to center line elevation, output shaft diameter and usable shaft size match the “R” series of the inline market innovator producing plant retrofitting a breeze.

The precision planetary equipment units of the EP series with floor helical gearing and preloaded dual taper roller bearings ensure low-noise synchronism due to their immense load transporting capacity and rigidity even under high load conditions. The one-piece world carrier and the integrated needle roller bearings allow the transmission of high torques. The excess shaft sealing ring ensures maximum safety against dirt and splash water relative to protection class IP65.

EP Gear’s 800 Series contains a focused collection of compact, durable helical gear drives that provide long-life performance and simplified maintenance. A wide range of reduction ratios match an even broader range of specifications, while a variety of input shaft configurations maximize flexibility. In addition, the amount of products that complement this series of equipment drives make it a perfect choice for today’s commercial distributor.
The 800 Series provides a functional interchange for ep and other European manufacturers’ helical gear drives,making it uniquely practical for substitute applications.
Four basic sizes 1/6 – 10 HP
Over 40 different ratios 1.5:1 – 71:1 double-reduction ratios 36:1 – 250:1 triple-reduction ratios
Non-flanged and NEMA c-face input styles
Base-mount and result flange-mount models available
Output-shaft diameters from 3/4″ to at least one 1 5/8″
The standard NEMA C-face design will accept any standard NEMA engine, which makes it exceptionally versatile.
Ratios up to 70:1 in just two levels means increased efficiency and reduced case size.
Available oil seals simplify regimen product maintenance.
All units can be double sealed upon both input and result to withstand the rigors of actually the most demanding applications.
800 Series drives come pre-filled with synthetic lubrication for your specific mounting position.
Sizes 3 and 4 are lubricated for life which promotes trouble-free operation.
Washdown duty systems in white or stainless steel epoxy coatings make these gear drives perfect for the most serious Washdown.
Right angle bevel speed reducers decrease speed and increase torque from the driver end to the driven result in a drive system. They have a beveled gear that allows the reducer to rotate in both directions and operate with low sound and vibration. They are typically made out of durable, corrosion-resistant components like stainless steel.
Wide range of accessories and non-standard designs
Single piece casing with high structural stiffness
Easy and functional shaft-mounting design
Minimum maintenance requirements
High, reliable and tested performance
Ideal for the heaviest duties

The exclusive use of the involute helicoid thread form on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies and lengthy service life on draglines and shovels. The hardened,floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a clean, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. Because of this, the worm gears put on in and improve with extented service while various other gears are wearing out.

Hollow & solid output shafts
Vertical & horizontal mountings
Fan cooled (standard)
Motor mounts
Cast iron or steel housings available
