Double Reduction Speed Reducer Selection Procedure


To properly select a speed reducer, the following application information must be known:

Input RPM (Ratio)
Output Torque
Input Horsepower
Service Factor

Non-Motorized Speed Reducer
1. Determine service factor from table below.
2. Determine design horsepower.
Design Horsepower = Application Load x Service Factor
3. Select a speed reducer size that satisfies output RPM, service class and/or output torque requirements.
4. Check overhung load capacity.

Motorized Speed Reducer
1. Determine service class from table below.
2. Select a reducer size that satisfies output RPM, service class and/or output torque requirements.
3. Check overhung load capacity.

Service Factor Table

For complete AGMA Service Factors and Load Classifications,
see Engineering Section, Pages 349 and 350.

 

Double Reduction Selection Tables
Capacity selection tables on Pages 77-81 list catalog numbers
and ratios of both reducers and gearmotors. Output RPM,
output torque and horsepower are all based on 1750 RPM
input. For motorized reducer selection, select the desired
output RPM and refer to the gearmotor ratings column. For
non-motorized reducers, refer to the reducer gear capacity
columns. For the desired HP, torque and service factor that
satisfies your requirements, a 700 Series basic reducer
number will be indicated. For complete catalog part number,
descriptions and options, refer to Page 70.

Overhung Load
If the output shaft of a speed reducer is connected to the
driven machine by other than a flexible coupling, an overhung
load is imposed on the shaft. This load may be calculated as
follows:
OHL = 2TK
     D
OHL = Overhung Load (LB.)
    T = Shaft Torque (LB.IN.)
    D = PD of Sprocket, Pinion or Pulley (IN.)
   K = Load Connection Factor

Load Connection Factor
Sprocket or Timing Belt ……………………………………………… 1.00
Pinion and Gear Drive ……………………………………………….. 1.25
Pulley and V-Belt Drive ………………………………………………. 1.50
Pulley and Flat Belt Drive ……………………………………………. 2.50

An overhung load greater than permissible load value may be
reduced to an acceptable value by the use of a sprocket, pinion
or pulley or a larger PD. Relocation of the load closer to the
center of reducer will also increase OHL capacity.

Permissible overhung loads and output shaft thrust loads are
listed for each reducer in the tables on Pages 30-33.

Maximum Input Speeds
W713, W718, W721, W726 ……………………………………… 4500 RPM
W730 through W760 ……………………………………………….. 3600 RPM

NOTE : Horsepower ratings for 1750 RPM should NOT be
exceeded when operating at higher input speeds.
