Bison Gear's Von Weise Drop-In Replacement gearmotors offer up to 800 in-lbs of continuous torque output, making them suitable for equipment that requires heavy duty torque and power. The one-half horsepower (373 watt), single-phase AC gearmotors are manufactured in three standard models available off-the-shelf.
The different models have gear ratios of 19:1, 28:1 and 56:1 with corresponding output speeds of 92, 62 and 31 rpm; they offer continuous torque ratings of 287, 400 and 800 in-lbs, respectively. Other features include split phase, open drip-proof AC motors and integral gear reducers with foot-mounting and lifetime grease lubrication.
"For their size, these are high torque, single-phase AC gearmotors with a rugged 400 pound overhung load capability," says Gary Dorough, Bison Gear regional sales manager. "That makes them ideal in such high torque applications as electromechanical pool covers and bleachers, compactors, can crushers, conveyors, commercial garage door operators and a wide variety of poultry and other agricultural equipment. The torque and power capability of this package are also greater than what most competitors offer in a comparable size gearmotor."
