Hercules has produced a family of products that includes their innovative Gear Reducers; Gear Motors; Mounts; Aerator, Agitator & Mixer Drives, and Custom Gearing. At the heart of the Hercules system is a new slightly offset parallel shaft reducer design, previously used only in much larger sizes — Hercules Syncrogear. “This design is what makes Hercules unique.” It enables them to rearrange the gears in a new triangular configuration for higher space efficiency — to straddle mount gears and pinions for minimum deflection.
Hercules Family Reducer Configurations
Hercules Syncrogear Reducer – Standard
Hercules products are available in fractional through 1000HP ratings. You can select from a complete line of gear drives ranging from 200 through 850,000 inch pounds of output torque.
Suitable gear ratios of 1-1 to 9420-1 are available in single, double, triple and quadruple reductions to provide standard speeds from .18 to 2000 final RPM. They complete the Hercules family of geared reduction units, both motorized and non-motorized. Vertical and horizontal assemblies.
And because the Hercules module is so versatile, single, double, triple and quadruple reduction units are available in same gear housing. This feature enables the Hercules network of distributors to offer a complete line of products with faster delivery, added flexibility in speeds and ratings, plus reduced inventories.
Hercules Agitator Mixer Drives
Hercules pioneered the development of vertical gear products for mechanical aerators in the petro-chemical and water pollution control equipment department. With the addition of new models from the Hercules family, they now offer a complete range of vertical gear products from 3 to 400 HP; 1,000-600,000 inch pounds of torque, which will meet rigorous applications demanded by the waste water treatment industry.
