    A GREENER GEARBOX FOR ANYTHING THAT GOES

    Hub City Inc. Innovates “Green” High-Efficiency Gearbox
    Troy McQuillen, October 25, 2010 (Hub City Inc.)

    "HERA, or High Efficiency Right Angle gear drive is a new [concept in gear drive units] that can efficiently convert 90% of the energy required to drive the unit to usable power. This figure is staggering compared to traditional worm drive units which convert 50% of the drive energy, or less, to usable power…

    "Worm Drive gearboxes are found in nearly every sector of the economy wherever motion is required and transferred along a production system. Such systems can include the any type of conveyor, manufacturing of products for recreation, transportation, military, packaging, construction, communication, material handling, medical and food processing equipment, and hundreds of other factory situations…"

    "Because HERA delivers more torque, smaller units can be used on existing systems. Smaller gearboxes cost less. And HERA lasts longer than standard boxes, so they need to be replaced less often, which is another cost-saving feature of HERA.

    "HERA’s unique (Patent Pending) technology uses a completely re-thought concept of delivering torque while increasing the unit’s efficiency. In fact, HERA can deliver twice the torque (more drive power) with less energy. When paired with a high-efficiency electric motor, or not, HERA actually allows the motor to work less while HERA delivers more power."

    "Typically in a production system, energy coming into the system is consumed first by the motor, upwards of 26%. After that, gearbox transmissions suck up another 24% of the energy and convert it to heat. In this scenario, 50% of the energy is wasted, and much of it is converted to heat, which causes air conditioning to run more. With HERA, 90% of the energy is effective, saving customers thousands of dollars in energy conservation.

    "Hub City, along with representatives from one of their distributors recently conducted an audit of a large beverage food processing company. The audit concluded that, if they replaced every traditional worm drive gearbox within their plant with HERA, energy conservation would save kilowatts equivalent to $300,000+! And the cost of the conversion would be recouped in 4 months…"
