Gear reducers contain cylindrical gear reducer and conical gear reducer. The cylindrical gear reducer is widely used in dry powder mixer. The conical gear reducer has the input shaft and output shaft perpendicular to each other, so it’s more suitable for the situation that the motor output shaft is vertical with the input shaft of dry powder mixer.
The main characteristics of the gear reducer is high efficiency, durable work, simple maintenance. According to the gear stages of gear reducer, it can be divided into single stage, two stages, three stages and even multi-stages gear reducer. The gear reducer can be installed by the methods of vertical installation and horizontal installation.
In order to increase efficiency, generally, we can use single stage gear reducer when the transmission ratio is less than 8. But when the reduction ratio is more than 8, two stages or multi-stagesis the best choice.
