industrial drives


  • A low-speed, high-torque, totally enclosed gear drive with positive output torque overload protection
  • The drive unit is supported by a column in the center of the tank
  • The drive unit has an external rotating drive drum with attachment points for the rake cage
  • The drive access bridge typically spans one half of the tank
  • Used in industrial, municipal and mining clarifiers and thickeners
  • Typically used on tank sizes from 40 to 300 ft (12 to 100 m) in diameter


Industrial Drives


  • Forged alloy steel main gear and pinion designed for 20 years of life calculated per AGMA 2001-C95
  • Precision, four-point-contact main bearing, with a 10-year warranty
  • Accurate torque gauge calibrated in ft-lbf, N-m or any units desired
  • Alarm and cutoff switches and maximum torque limiting via shear pin or pressure relief valve
  • No lower pinion bearing, eliminating a common source of drive failure
  • Designed for minimum maintenance with permanently lubricated secondary reducer
