The GCD Top Entry Mixer is a robust solution for your harshest mixing conditions.
The Cleveland Mixer GCD series features a high efficiency (up to 98%) gear reducer. While most mixing can easily overload ordinary, commercial gear reducers, the GCD’s ultra-rigid, single piece, high density, cast iron housing creates a foundation for bearing strength and a long life of trouble free service.
Easy access to the gearbox fixation points reduces assembly and installation time thereby reducing installation and maintenance costs. Oversized gussets at each bearing location and oversized bearings enable the GCD to bear the high bending and torque loads that are typical with most top entry mixing applications.
Our GCD top entry product line is designed for the harshest process conditions. All selections are rated for AGMA Class III conditions — Continuous 24/7 operation under extreme shock loading. The product range is from 3HP to 50HP with output shaft diameters from 1.50 to 4.5 inches. From 1,000 to 500,000 gallons, the GCD product line is designed for your most demanding mixing application. The product line has nine different sizes which offer B10 bearing lives in excess of 50,000 hours as a minimum.
Long intervals between oil changes and the 2-stage gearbox concept reduce maintenance costs and the need for extensive spare parts stocking. A pedestal allows easy maintenance access and quick
installation, reducing downtime and operating costs. The GCD top entry mixer is designed per your application demands, and is available with a host of impeller technologies
from high efficiency hydrofoils to custom gas
dispersion impellers. Like our other top entry agitators, we back our products with a 3 year mechanical warranty and a process guarantee.
Near silent operation from high tensile and case hardened steel gear wheels. Gearing is hardened to 62 HRC that is impervious to shock. Gear teeth flanks are hobbed and
ground. Unique heat shrunk high speed pinion gear that does not flex and guarantees precise tooth matching. A high tensile strength sealed gear reducer casting ensures
long bearing and oil life and reduces the chance for oil leakage. A wide variety of seals are offered and tailored to your application.
