Rotating Biological Contact Drives

DBS manufactures custom drives for applications such as flocculators, mixers, vacuum filters, rotating biological contact units, and other industrial applications.

DBS makes bolt-in replacements for rotating biological contact units. These retrofits can put a more economical and more rugged DBS drive to work in your plant performing these important functions. Like all DBS products, these retrofit drive units are covered by exceptional warranties and our 24-hour “engineer on call” service.

DBS drives can replace the drives on Autotrol, Walker Process and other manufacturers’ rotating biological contact units. DBS drive units are hydraulically driven, permitting high-torque low-speed starting, which is particularly useful in getting the disks moving when initially they are out of balance. The hydraulic drive operates with low power, and one central power source can drive multiple disks. Lower operating cost and longer life are what you can expect from DBS drives.
