The RESF37 and KESA37 stainless-steel helical bevel-gear reducers are said to use less energy, run cooler, and last longer than typical single-worm gear units. The design, material, and smooth finish resist bacteria, chemicals, and processes common to the food-processing industry. Helical bevel gears have an infinite life, and are 50% more efficient than single-worm gears.

The shaft-mounted gear units are available with NEMA-C face-motor adapters, IEC adapters, or as gearmotors, in ratios up to 134.82 (RESF37) and 106.38:1 (KESA37). The reducers have an input power rating of 3 hp and a 1,770-lb-in. output torque rating.
