DieQua recently exhibited at the Iron and Steel Technology show in Pittsburgh, PA. Highlighted were their unique water-cooled speed reducers for high heat environments as well as other speed reducers and gearmotors.
This exhibition sponsored by AIST, or the Association for Iron and Steel Technology, had as it‚â€™s mission: Advancing the technical development, production, processing and application of iron and steel.
WATT Drive has been supplying gear motors to the European Steel Industry for many years. One of the most popular models has been their unique water-cooled parallel shaft drive for use near high heat sources. Although each application requires separate flow rate analysis for proper heat dissipation, the design concept is similar from project to project.
Also exhibited was another design with a heat shield and standard products for other steel Industry applications. Because of the continuous nature of steel making, very reliable gear drives are a necessity. WATT Drive‚â€™s heavy duty construction and protection options are ideal for holding up to these conditions.
