plaromaster® MR: The leading variable-speed gearbox – not only regarding explosion protection

The plaromaster® MR are the world’s leading variable-speed gearboxes in the explosion-proof area according to ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU. They use the principle of elasto-hydrodynamic power transmission and are infinitely adjustable from and to zero speed, even with the highest starting or breakaway torques. They can be operated manually by means of a hand wheel. Due to the characteristics of the system, they cannot slip through – complex and costly ATEX external monitoring is not necessary.

The decisive advantages

  • Highest output torque from zero speed
  • Variable-speed gearbox cannot slip through
  • The ATEX variable-speed drive most interesting in price for explosion-proof zones 1 and 21, as combination with motor “explosion-proof” is sufficient – motor with flameproof enclosure not necessary
  • Expensive and complex external ATEX control for zones 1 and 21 not necessary
  • Design conform to GMP, FDA and USDA-H1 standards
  • Can also be supplied as silicone-free drive unit
  • Applicable for low temperatures (special execution)
The outstanding technology
  • Torque-proportional power transmission results in high service life and reliability. No friction at all inside gearbox, torque transmission thanks to the “elastohydrodynamic effect”.
The special properties
  • Variable-speed gearbox with speed adjustment to speed zero, i.e. adjustable from output speed n2 = zero as well as down to output speed n2 = zero speed, adjustable at rest, linear setting characteristic, low-noise and low-vibration running of the variable-speed gearboxes
Product overview
