GKC classic series worm gearboxes with GHA anti-bacterial coating

The “G.H.A.” (Golden Hard Anodizing) treatment is the latest and most innovative technology applicable to aluminum-based alloys surfaces. This is an anodic oxidation process enriched with silver ions which gives the treated surface exceptional antibacterial, anti-corrosion, anti-wear and thermal conductivity properties.
The anodic oxidation generates a protective layer of ceramic type, very hard, refractory to heat and unremovable.

Moreover, by means of a patented process, the typical porosities of the anodic oxide crystals are galvanically sealed with silver ions.

The high hardness of the anodic oxide and the uniform distribution of the silver ions guarantee chemical-physical properties of extreme interest for applications in the food, pharmaceutical and marine fields. The GHA gearbox line is an exclusive Tramec patent.

GHA gearboxes VS stainless steel gearboxes / with other treatments

Thanks to the special properties conferred by the patented treatment to which they are subjected, gearboxes  and motors of the GHA series are an excellent alternative to those exclusively made in stainless steel or treated with other processes(i.e. nickel plating or special paintings).

Advantages

  • External surface actively antibacterial vs. inert surfaces, which do not prevent bacterial proliferation
  • 1/3 lighter than stainless steel
  • Over 13 times higher thermal conductivity (204 W / m ° C) compared to stainless steel (15 W / m ° C)
  • Cheaper than the corresponding stainless steel version
  • Nickel free
  • Non-magnetic motors, capable of withstanding high voltages
  • Safe and aseptic
  •  

Features

  • Excellent antibacterial properties
  • Standard corrosion resistance (250 hours in salt spray NSS)
  • IE1 energy class and IP55 protection
  • V. 230/400/50 – B5 or B14
  • Standard housings in die-cast aluminum alloy with GHA treatment
  • Finned external profile
  • Good thermal dissipation
  • Stainless steel nuts and bolts
  • Nylon fan cover
  •  

Applications

  • food production
  • chemical-pharmaceutical
  • marine applications
