Shaft install reducers are enclosed helical equipment reducers with a hollow output. They are mounted directly on the insight shaft of the powered machine and are backed by the shaft and torque arm arrangement or motor mount frame. This eliminates the necessity for additional elements to transmit torque from the reducer to the equipment. The parts of a shaft mount reducer include:

• rotating bushing ring
• TorqTaper® bushing
• torque arm bracket
• torque arm rod and turnbuckle
• foot bracket
• input or high quickness shaft
• an optional backstop

The Browning® shaft install reducer, also referred to as the Browning SMTP, is a cost-effective approach to traveling machinery. The shaft attach design eliminates the necessity for support structures that are required in conventional foot mounted reducer assemblies. It also eliminates the necessity for chain, sprockets, couplings and bedplates. In addition, the design minimizes alignment problems.

The compact design of the shaft mounted reducer helps save space. It also allows the unit to be installed at 360 degrees around the shaft and at the end of the conveyor. Additionally, the reducer is quite efficient at approximately 98.5% efficiency per reduction stage. Typical industries for the Browning SMTP are aggregate, baggage managing, grain and wastewater treatment.
