AquaTRUE™ True Planetary Gearheads are watertight

The first gearhead on the market that is corrosion resistant and watertight for any application is now available from Micromech. Furthermore it combines high performance and wide torque capacity with features specifically designed to meet the strict requirements of applications such as food and beverage handling, packaging and dispensing.


Until now, manufacturers have been unable to use gearheads in many applications which are exposed to harsh environments because there was not a product available capable of withstanding the conditions. The AquaTRUE’s IP66/IP67 and IP69K AquaTRUEprotection (NSF/ANSI 169 Certification)
is able to handle caustic cleaning chemicals as well as high-pressure washdown. The gearhead is engineered to be placed anywhere in the application’s design, regardless of environmental factors. This eliminates the cost of additional components such as enclosures, shielding or mechanical transmissions.

This unique gearhead’s 304 stainless steel housing eliminates the concern for rust or any type of corrosion. It has a laser etched permanent product label and a smooth, round external housing that is designed without any external seams or corners where bacteria  might collect. This makes the AquaTRUE very easy to clean and a perfect fit in any washdown environment.

Frame sizes range from 60mm then 80mm, 120mm and 160mm, with a precision of 13 arc-min max and torque capacity of up to 876Nm, with ratios available from 3:1 to 10:1 in a single stage.

AquaTRUEThe AquaTRUE can be used in more than just food and beverage applications as it is also a perfect fit in applications that require sealing from high pressure water or other chemicals such as water jet cutting. The high-pressure water streams associated with water jet cutting make the sealing of the mechanical components critical. The IP66,
IP67 and IP69K protection that is standard with the AquaTRUE product line means it is completely sealed from high-pressure water or corrosive chemicals. Since all of the external components are stainless steel there is no concern for rust or corrosion.

Other applications besides food and beverage, are medical hygienic equipment, pharmaceutical, meat cutting and slicing, and of course anywhere that needs washdown.
