LOTUS CHEMMIXERS X8/X8A Series

The X8/X8A series agitators are the workhorses of our product line.

The X8A configuration is a hollow quill design with independent bearing support similar to the Lightnin Series 80 gearbox. The advantage to the hollow quill is the ability to handle extreme loads on the shaft/impeller while the independent bearing isolates the loads away from the gearbox.

 

The standard X8 configuration is similar to the Lightnin Series 70 and the Chemineer HT.

  • X8/X8A gearboxes can be configured as a hollow quill design with an independent bearing (similar to the Series 80 by Lightnin) or with a stub shaft or stub shaft configuration like the Lightnin Series 70/ Chemineer HT.

  • Both configurations are right angle drives which is ideal for low head room constraints

  • Drywell design prevents leakage of lubrication oil

  • Splash lubrication allows for cooler operations and fewer required oil changes

  • Available in standard models from speeds of 37.5 to 250 rpm and up to 500 HP

  • The X8/X8A gearboxes utilize hardened helical and spiral bevel gear sets.

  • For easy maintenance, the gears are easily accessed through a large change gear cover.

  • All of our gearboxes include a view port . Unlike competition’s “sight glass” which is typically 1/2” dia. for oil level observation we supply a view port to see what is taking place in your gearbox.

  • Tapered roller bearings with L-10 service rating higher than 100,000 hours

  • Standard high quality finish of a coating of catalyzed polyurethane finish for indoor and outdoor installations.

 

LOTUS X10 Vertical Drive Mixers

X10 gearboxes are highly efficient parallel shaft gear drives. Their design allows for extreme flexibility for modification of mounting, seal types, shaft connections, and gear ratios, all of which can be done with the standard gearbox.

 

  • X10 mixers can be supplied with a single, double or triple reduction.

  • Dry design prevents leakage of lubrication oil

  • Splash lubrication allows for cooler operations and fewer required oil changes

  • Available in standard models from speeds of 16 to 750 rpm and up to 300 HP

  • Able to be used with shaft diameters up to 8”

  • All high quality cast iron housing.
