Details of equipment:

Several types of conveyors for the recycling industry: Chain belt, Sorting belts, and Slider belts

Details of original drive:

The original gear drive used was the Shinko worm gear reducer in 40:1 ratios.

Details of Dorris replacement drive:

By changing to the Dorris in 40:1 ratios they were able to use the same ratios as before and get higher torque outputs from a smaller sized reducer.

How has the Dorris drive performed, enhanced, simplified, condensed, etc. the customer’s overall drive package?

The 40:1 ratios allow the OEM to use smaller belt ratios to obtain the actual speed output they require.
