Regal Announces Line Extension of the Hub City<sup>®</sup> Stainless Steel HERA<sup>®</sup> High Efficiency Right Angle Gear Drive
BELOIT, Wis., Sept. 23, 2020 — Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, today announced a line extension of the Hub City® SS (stainless steel) HERA® High Efficiency Right Angle Gear Drive.
Regal has added two new sizes to the IP69K certified SS version of this helical-hypodial gear drive to this product suite with the stainless steel 55 and 75, taking the torque range to 8,500 in-lbs. Worm gear drives are generally not as efficient as helical gears and become less efficient the higher the ratio. The SS HERA Gear Drive is 90% efficient, regardless of ratio.
“The line extension of the SS Hub City HERA Gear Drive is designed to be a no- hassle replacement of major brands of worm speed reducers and also provides a highly efficient right angle gear solution for new applications,” said Mike Suter, vice president, marketing, Regal. “SS HERA offers four models that can replace up to a dozen sizes of worm reducers. This interchangeability can help with inventory consolidation.”
The SS HERA, with polished 316 stainless steel housings, is IP69K-certified to withstand sustained high-temperature, high-pressure washdown. It is also HACCP-compatible and BISSC-certified.
The SS HERA can be bundled with LEESON® Stainless WASHGUARD® all-stainless motors. It is available with the HubLoc® keyless bushing system and new stainless steel HubCap™ bolt-on split covers.
Regal offers online tools and apps for both iPhone and Android users to assist with SS HERA selection. Users may select the right product using physical parameters and by entering a competitive worm gear model number. The product search and 3D configurator are user-friendly, quick to navigate, and provide native CAD files.
