The right gear for your application
Alkitronic torque multipliers for plate heat exchangers are available with two different gear systems. Depending on the side from where your heat exchanger is accessible, we offer a solution to fit you. The radial gearing (R) with high performance worm drive is suitable for lateral bolting and requires a bit more space, while gear and multiplier form one unit.
The tangential gearing (SG) with highly efficient spur gear is the ideal solution for frontal tightening, when space is restricted. The advantage lies in the fact that the multiplier can also be used for other applications independently of the gear.
