The Dodge bulk materials-handling team utilises an expansive portfolio of Dodge mechanical and Baldor-Reliance electrical products, Passport online selection, and decades of conveyor engineering expertise. These capabilities allow customers to partner with one manufacturer that can offer complete, packaged proposals for quick delivery of factory-assembled packages that increase reliability, improve productivity, and help you operate safely.
Dodge’s bulk materials-handling conveyor design experience, combined with an industry-leading mechanical product portfolio, allows for every Dodge component to be specifically designed, manufactured, and assembled into a complete Dodge package, ensuring maximum reliability during operation. Larger bearings than the competition results in longer mean-time-between-repairs. Dodge heavy-duty gearboxes utilise AGMA bearing specifications, requiring a minimum unadjusted L10 bearing rating of 5 000 hours for all bearings in the gearbox, which is at least double the rating of most competitive designs.
Dodge reducers and mounted bearings feature patented shaft attachment designs (twin tapered bushings and Imperial/ISN) that provide faster installation and removal, while minimising vibration and eliminating fretting corrosion as seen with competitive designs. Dodge reducers and mounted bearings contain industry-leading seal technology that includes multiple layers of seal protection and advanced materials (HNBR) that ensure maximum protection against contaminants.
