Shaft Mounted Speed Reducers (SMSR) Gearboxes - All Fenner® Classic Shaft Mounted Speed Reducers (SMSR) are now eligible for a new lease of life thanks to the ´Service Exchange´ programme from ERIKS UK. Classic shaft mounted gearboxes that are reaching the end of their service life can be exchanged for a replacement unit of the same model and dimensions, but fully refurbished with completely new internal components. New shafts and gears are manufactured in the same factory as the originals, but mounted on the latest technology bearings and protected by new generation seals.
The Fenner® Classic Shaft Mounted Speed Reducer has for many years proved the workhorse of many industry sectors driving conveyors, agitators and other machines in arduous applications. ERIKS UK will now exchange those original SMSRs in the new ´Service Exchange´ programme and guarantee the replacement unit for two years when purchased on it´s own, or three years if purchased with an inverter drive or softstart.
Rebuilt to the same high standards as the original using brand new genuine Fenner internal components, the Service Exchange SMSR units also benefit from the latest generation bearings and seal arrangements ensuring the replacement gearboxes provide first class performance and a long service life just like the original. Gear contact patterns, end floats and backlash figures are all identical to the original.
ERIKS UK will also accept all other makes of shaft mounted gearbox into the Service Exchange programme, replacing the original make with the equivalent torque rated Fenner Classic SMSR allowing customers to upgrade to the reducer that set the standard. The Fenner Classic SMSR service exchange units are available in all sizes and ratios direct from stock guaranteeing the minimum in down time with no modifications needed.
Ordering a Service Exchange unit could not be easier; customers need only call ERIKS UK on 0845 006 6000 24hr and quote the part number stamped on the existing gearbox or state the size and ratio required. ERIKS UK will deliver a Service Exchange unit and collect the old unit when convenient which will be taken back and rebuilt before being returned to stock. All replacement units receive new ID plates for clear identification and are supplied ´as new´.
All new Fenner® gearboxes including the Classic Service Exchange units are available with the new improved Fenner Taper-Grip™ mounting system. The Fenner Taper-Grip™ mounting system allows each gearbox to be fitted with the minimum of fuss by sliding it along the shaft to the required position and then simply tightening it´s collar bolts to assert a huge clamping force to keep the unit firmly in place. Removal then requires the bolts to be loosened and the collar tapped in towards the gearbox, the unit is then free to remove, avoiding any seizure due to fretting corrosion, the single most common problem faced when removing any shaft mounted device after a long period of service.
In addition to complete units, ERIKS UK also offers a range of specialist options including a full range of spare parts, special designs and sealing kits for aggressive atmospheres.
The Fenner® SMSR units form part of ERIKS UK´s comprehensive range of power transmission products and services available from over 170 local branches nationwide. ERIKS UK can be contacted directly on 0845 006 6000 or on the net at www.ERIKS.co.uk
