The Hytrol Speed Reducer is also known as a gear reducer or gearbox and fits many Hytrol conveyor models. This speed reducer is available in two sizes: 4AC for up to 1 hp motors and 5AC for 1-1/2 and 2 hp motors. Other options are ratio, C-face, and right or left-hand orientation.
Models 4AC and 5AC speed reducers are supplied with a “C-Face” adapter and are coupled directly to the motor by coupling gears and sleeve. The coupling gears and sleeve are available separately.
To determine a right hand or left hand Hytrol reducer, look into the output shaft with the input shaft on the high side. If the input is on the right side, it is a right-hand reducer. If it is on the left, it is a left-hand reducer.
The Hytrol Speed Reducer, if properly used, should require little maintenance except for scheduled lubrication. Please contact Arnold Supply, Inc. if you need Instructions for changing the oil or need to know the recommended lubricant.
