The BGM Series offers a compact, high capacity, helical gear reduction. The drive shaft is independently supported with two sealed, permanently lubricated bearings. NEMA C-Face motors from 1/2 to 4 HP are standard. Other motor options include DC with variable speed control, explosion-proof or air. Best of all, the BGM utilizes the same modular design, with all metal housings, as the BD Series. This means lower total cost for a mixer of superior quality and features.
