NORD has developed the SAFOMI-IEC adapter (SAFOMI = Sealless Adapter For Mixers) specifically for agitators. It has a compact and simple design, as well as an integrated oil expansion volume. Oil tanks and hoses as well as the radial shaft seal that is subject to leakage and wear between gear unit and IEC cylinder are not required. 

The SAFOMI-IEC adapter replaces a standard IEC adapter on the agitator drive, resulting in increased operational reliability and reduced maintenance. Compared to the standard application, not only is the required oil volume lower, but the installation space is also reduced thanks to the absence of attached components.

Reducing wear

NORD offers the SAFOMI for MAXXDRIVE® parallel gear units in the sizes 7 to 11 and thus for maximum output torques from 25 to 75 kNm. The compact combination of SAFOMI-IEC adapter, MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear unit and a drive motor is the ideal choice for mixer and agitator applications and largely eliminates the need for wear-prone and attached components. 

MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units have been a part of the NORD product range for more than ten years and have since proven themselves in countless applications. They offer high output torques from 15 to 250 kNm and ensure smooth operation even under demanding operating conditions.
