Sambo Bevel Gears
Sambo bevel gears are known for their high quality and high performance. A unique top entry stem nut design makes it easy to replace without having to remove the gear from the valve. Each Sambo spiral bevel gear has an alumite grease type fitting and a grease plug for adding lubricant.
Sambo bevel gears in most sizes are available for shipment from our warehouse in Houston, TX. Contact us for a quote or for more information.
- Spiral Pinion and Spiral Bevel Gear
Pinion gear is 1045 heat treated steel. Bevel Gear is 1045 steel. Both gears are precision cut.
Units are completely O-ring sealed, suitable for temporary submergence to meet IP67 Class.
- Spherical Roller Bearing
This input bevel pinion is fully supported on deep groove ball bearings to provide excellent radial support.
The base & end cap is sealed by a non-asbestos gasket to prevent any leakage and is waterproof.
- Thrust ball or Self-Aligning Thrust Roller Bearing
Provides anti-friction capacity required for high load applications.
- Dual Locking Nuts
This design incorporates dual locking nuts which provide a jam effect for positive locking. No set screw or pinning is required.
- Stem Nut
A unique top entry replaceable stem nut. After many years of service, this stem nut can be easily replaced without removing the gear from value. Stem nut is made with tensile brass providing both corrosion and abrasion resistance.
- Drive Sleeve
Made with ductile iron, Class 55-45-12. The drive sleeve supports both axial and radial loads.
- Housing and Base
All external castings are are made with ductile iron. Class 55-45-12 with a tensile strength of 55,DDD psi. This provides high strength and excellent impact resistance.
